George Helm was a musician and activist from Kalamaʻula, Molokaʻi. He helped lead the movement that ended the destruction of Kahoʻolawe, a Hawaiian island the U.S. used for target practice. The military had bombed it for years, and in the 1970s, George Helm was among a hui (group) of young folks who pushed back.
Aloha ‘āina is a love and respect for the land of your ancestors. A love and respect for the things that feed you, for the wisdom of what's been there all along. In a society that degrades these things, aloha ʻāina becomes a political act.
George Helm practiced aloha ʻāina in times like these. Many did, and many continue to. He disappeared at sea in March of 1977 while returning from Kahoʻolawe. What survives is his music and the work that the folks from the Protect Kahoʻolawe ʻOhana are doing to restore the island back to good health. Proceeds from each sale will be donated to the Protect Kahoʻolawe ʻOhana.
