He sported a cozy travel style look that made a statement in more ways than one.

Momoa sported a pair of Hamburglar chic black and white striped sweatpants with a red t-shirt.

The shirt featured the logo for Ku Kia’i Mauna (Protect Mauna Kea), which is a local-led initiative to preserve the sacred site.

The 39-year-old was greeted as he landed by two men who displayed a large flag for Mauna Kea.

The mountain has recently been the site of protests against construction on the Thirty Meter Telescope, a $1.4 billion project that native Hawaiians say would desecrate the land.

Crowds have reached the thousands, blocking construction crews from reaching the summit.

Hobbs & Shaw star Dwayne Johnson also made a surprise appearance at the site to show his support for the Thirty Meter Telescope opposition group.
