Please help me and my Native Hawaiian family not become homeless AGAIN, keep doing education work and save our dying lands at the Silver Spook hui (cooperative) over here: https://ko-fi.com/silverspook
Do watch #Prey which is the best Predator movie of them all in terms of cinematography, storytelling, relevance to the present AND realism -- women have always been warriors, especially indigenous ones, despite lying, thieving, colonizer patriarchal BS.
More on the way we Hawaiians had gender equality, acceptance of LGBTQ and non-binary gender including Mahu (similar to two spirit people), and the vital roles they've played against colonization and US genocide of us Hawaiians.
Haven't seen the movie yet, but looking forward to it!
On a related note, some trace the Samoan fireknife to a weapon used by the warrior queen Nafanua.
While most modern-day fireknife dancers are are male, women certainly participate.
I wonder if there is a correlation between societies who only allow male warriors and societies who largely succeed because they send armies of men out to take stuff away from other people.
Seems to me like groups of men who aren't needed for food production at home could be neatly kept out from underfoot by sending them out to attack and steal from others, but when people come to attack from elsewhere everybody fights.
