Meet The Native Hawaiians Fighting U.S. Occupation

March 4, 2017

 

I produced this piece on the Hawaiian fight for sovereignty. In 1893, armed U.S. naval forces helped American sugar plantation owners illegally overthrow Hawaii’s constitutional monarchy. 100 years later, the U.S. apologized and admitted in a resolution that Native Hawaiians had never relinquished their claims to sovereignty. Today, activist Bumpy Kanahele, has created his own village as a model for sovereignty.
