The authors recognize and acknowledge the very significant cultural role and reverence that the summit of Mauna Kea has always had within the indigenous Hawaiian community. We are most fortunate to have the opportunity to conduct observations from this mountain. We acknowledge useful discussions with Chuck Steidel, Phil Hopkins, Xiangcheng Ma, Drew Newman, and Paul Torrey, and thank Paul Torrey for his Illustris metal gradient predictions tailored to the context of our observations. Support for A.Z. was provided by NASA through Hubble Fellowship grant #HST-HF2-51334.001-A awarded by STScI.
