Warrant Issued for Man Who Spoke Only Fluent Hawaiian in Court mauinow.com

Submitted by seitanicqueer98 in Decolonisation (edited )

this is a prime example of the criminalization of a indigenous person for doing something as important and harmless as speaking their native tongue; it's an act of violence perpetrated by the judge, preventing Kaʻeo from entering within the parameters of his reality. the judge demeans and deligitimizes Kaʻeo's entire existence because he does not submit to colonial ideals.
