Imagine a Native American community with a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages & ancestor's graves, made to do bastardizations of sacred dances, in 'sexy feather headresses' & entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hrs a day 7 days a week 1/?

living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that's just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii. (2/?)

Yes, the language was banned, and in 2018 a Hawai'ian professor Kaleikoa Ka'eo was arrested for speaking Hawai'ian in court despite Hawai'ian *technically* being an officially recognized language.

I'm Native Hawaiian and been repeatedly homeless in my own land, like so many others. While American and other foreign billionaires own countless mansions &unoccupied multi-million dollar condos here. Zuckerberg's1300 acre ranch, Larry Ellison owns Lana'i. Fuck colonialism.

Neofeud is a game about my experiences growing up in Hawaii's ghetto, being a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees, mostly non-white kids in slums of Hawaii the tour buses avoid. 100% of sales go to housing and feeding more Hawai'ians.

TMT is US-led colonialism in Hawaii. A 1.6 billion dollar corporate project founded in racism, no consent from indigenous people, threatening police violence against us Native Hawaiians. The massive environmental waste will impact the water my kids drink.

Many Americans think that Hawai'ians lived in huts prior to colonization. The US actually de-industrialized Hawai'i. Before 1898, Hawai'i already had electricity, mass transit, railroads. Iolani palace had electric lights before the White House.

Hawaii also had a higher literacy rate than the US, and Europe before colonization, the banning of our culture and language, erasure of our history, and ghettoization. Hawai'ians were also often bi- or trilingual, and world-renowned diplomats.

Kalakaua, one of our leaders, had invented a sub-aquatic vehicle when Jules Verne was still dreaming up 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Hawai'i was a living Wakanda - an indigenous future: more technologically, economically, and socio-politically advanced than any Western Nation.


The sovereign country of Hawaii had Black citizens before the US Civil War. In fact, US slaves that stepped onto Hawaiian soil were considered free. Chinese were full citizens in Hawaii as US chained them up to build railroads & West Coast, w/terrible racism, lynching of Asians.

An example of actual equality, democracy, existing socialism without racial hatred, greater technological advancement in a POC nation - it put the US, the West, and Europe to shame, blew their 'White Man's Burden' out of the water -- which was why they illegally crushed Hawaii.

Hawaii's coup - backed by US gunboat diplomacy - to smash a Non-White country's building of an actual anti-racist, socialist, thriving country was the blueprint that would later be used on countless Asian, Pacific Islander, Latin American, African, countries across the world.

To push the country back into poverty, dis-educate its people, 'obliterate the history', de-develop its infrastructure, and plunder resources and cheap labor.
(Homeless tent city is where I worked as social worker/STEM teacher for impoverished Hawaiians / AAPI at-risk youth)

But the US & Western imperialism's days are numbered. Hawaiians are learning our olelo (language) & history - despite US attempts to stop it - & we are building the prosperous, advanced, yet culturally Hawaiian world in solidarity w/ the rest of the rising Global South & allies.

Help me do more indigenous education and make anti-capitalist anti-imperialist games at the Silver Spook hui (cooperative/commune) where we're trying to house and feed as is our kuleana (responsibility): (direct support)
Neofeud - a cyberpunk game I created about my experiences as a ghettoized Hawaiian under US racialized capitalism / colonialism

Here's another mega-thread specifically on my game Neofeud about my life as an impoverished Hawai'ian, social worker and STEM teacher for other poor/homeless, refracted through the lens of satirical cyberpunk

Asians, esp Chinese, were a threat to the white capitalist oligarchy because of the hui (worker-coop) system which had a similar meaning in both Hawaiian AND Chinese (AND Vietnamese, I later learned talking to
@LunaOi_VN )
