Hawaiians fought the US Navy, and won

Since World War II, the U.S. Navy has used the Hawaiian island of Kaho‘olawe for bombing practice, though native Hawaiians venerate it as a kinolau (body form) of the sea god Kanaloa, and it had many fishing shrines. The island was returned to Hawaii in 1996, and has been undergoing restoration since then. A Vox video by Ranjani Chakraborty.
