On March 6, 1982, five years after the disappearance of George Helm and Kimo Mitchell in the seas off the island of Kaho'olawe, the Protect Kaho'olawe 'Ohana held a tribute to the two men at 'Iolani Palace in Honolulu.
Representatives from the Helm and Mitchell families along with community members, singers and musicians from Kaua'i, Maui, Moloka'i and Hawai'i island joined their O'ahu compatriots in remembering the legacy of George and Kimo and the actions of many others who worked peaceably to stop the U.S. military bombing of Kaho'olawe.
This video was produced by Na Maka o ka `Aina in 1982. The footage was digitized and preserved in 2011 with support from Hawai`i People's Fund.
