US billionaires buy up Hawaii while most of us Hawaiians don't "own" a single acre of our US-illegally occupied home. Mark Zuckerberg forced us from his 1200 acre ranch on Kaua'i. Elon's buddy Larry Ellison owns an entire island, while we remain homeless.


Since the US banned our Hawaiian language, it nearly went extinct. Less than 100 kids spoke it in the 80's. Kids are STILL punished for speaking Hawaiian today.
The fact we've 30,000+ Hawaiians speakers now is testament to our struggle to preserve our culture from eradication.

Hawaii also leads the US in the school-to-prison pipeline - #1 in rounding up children, especially Native Hawaiians. Part of the continued US attempt to destroy us indigenous people and lifeways.

If you'd like to help me with this education and game dev work (also help some Hawaiians keep a roof over our head)

More on Hawaii that had the world's highest literacy rate, world's first Universal Healthcare, invented submarines before Jules Verne published 20,000 leagues, before the US invaded, banned our language and culture, ghettoized us, and buried the history.

@silverspookgames They do **WHAT**?

Imagine banning a language for no reason, so cringe :fuck-you:

Colonialismo, imperialismo, erradicación de las culruras milenarias... y dicen que somos civilizados... algunos países se niegan a ser educados y siguen siendo bárbaros.

@silverspookgames This makes me want to look at Duolingo and see if there is Hawaiian available. Just because. I've only heard little of it, but it sounds so melodic.

@silverspookgames Image caption: “This little girl’s teacher told her not to speak Hawaiian or she’ll be punished. This is still happening in 2022*. I’m infuriated”. The caption is beneath a photo of said girl with downcast eyes.

@silverspookgames that moment when the US accuses other countries of nonexistent genocides but are ACTUALLY committing genocides.

Every accusation is an admission with those people.
