Imagine a Native American community with a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages & ancestor's graves, made to do bastardizations of sacred dances, in 'sexy feather headresses' & entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hrs a day 7 days a week 1/?

living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that's just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii. (2/?)

Yes, the language was banned, and in 2018 a Hawai'ian professor Kaleikoa Ka'eo was arrested for speaking Hawai'ian in court despite Hawai'ian *technically* being an officially recognized language.

I'm Native Hawaiian and been repeatedly homeless in my own land, like so many others. While American and other foreign billionaires own countless mansions &unoccupied multi-million dollar condos here. Zuckerberg's1300 acre ranch, Larry Ellison owns Lana'i. Fuck colonialism.

Neofeud is a game about my experiences growing up in Hawaii's ghetto, being a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees, mostly non-white kids in slums of Hawaii the tour buses avoid. 100% of sales go to housing and feeding more Hawai'ians.

TMT is US-led colonialism in Hawaii. A 1.6 billion dollar corporate project founded in racism, no consent from indigenous people, threatening police violence against us Native Hawaiians. The massive environmental waste will impact the water my kids drink.

Many Americans think that Hawai'ians lived in huts prior to colonization. The US actually de-industrialized Hawai'i. Before 1898, Hawai'i already had electricity, mass transit, railroads. Iolani palace had electric lights before the White House.

The West also lies about Hawaiian 'savages living in shacks' prior to colonization. The US actually de-industrialized us. Before 1898, Hawaii already had electricity, mass transit, railroads, and invented functioning submarines as Jules Verne merely imagined 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The G7 actually owe tens of trillions in reparations to China in pilfered tea, silk, porcelain, the contents of the Summer Palace, the massacre of the Opium Wars, and a century of colonial plunder.

@silverspookgames They haven't even returned the priceless art they stole from China. That shit is proudly displayed in their museums, they don't tell you how they got them though.

@AgreeableLandscape @silverspookgames From what I heard, the chinese government has, for several years now, been conducting museum heists to steal back many of the cultural artifacts and pieces of art that were plundered from it.

@zauberin @silverspookgames There's no real evidence it's government orchestrated from what I know, most I've heard is that *maybe* Chinese billionaires have been doing it as they think it's patriotic, the act of which is probably also illegal in China anyway. Again, it's propaganda to frame China as some kind of super villain, all with a dash of projection.

@zauberin @silverspookgames Fun fact, China's criminal code applies to people even if they're outside the country, with the only exceptions being for less serious acts that are legal in the country they were done in. Stealing from museums is illegal in China, no exceptions, so I can't imagine why they would be okay with billionaires stealing art abroad (to add to their personal collections no less).
