After the wildfires, the Hawaiian people saved lives. They and their culture have a unique opportunity to reclaim their lands. Late Stage Capitalism destroyed Maui. It’s time to let the Indigenous Peoples reclaim their land and make their resources flourish.
Don’t mistake #Late Stage Capitalism for Democracy. A profit only mentality is destroying America. Just look at our education, healthcare and political parties, all or nothing attitudes , doesn’t serve ” #We the People “.
When state and federal aid lagged in the days after the fire, Indigenous-led and faith-based organizations stepped up to provide shelter and resources to survivors, said Tamara Paltin, a West Maui county councilmember. A host of volunteer-powered distribution tents provided food, clothing and medication, as well as acupuncture and lomi practitioners.
