Abstract: This case study aims to contribute to scholarship on social movements, and the application of these concepts to Hawaiʻi's political history. Mākua Valley has been occupied by the military since World War II, and has been a widely contested area of land located on the west side of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. I present a case study of a long-term land struggle at Mākua Valley within the context of competing frames between the Army and the proponents of stewardship change. Through this paper, I examine the different stages of the struggle at Mākua over an eight-year period (between September 1998 and December 2006) through media content and personal narratives. Over the course of time, this particular movement demonstrates the role of the media in presenting selective frames, the development of legal strategy as a means to achieve social movement objectives, and the impact of changing political opportunities on processes of change (9-11).
