Hawaiians fought the US Navy, and won

February 28, 2022

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.
