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.

@silverspookgames Reminds me of European comicbooks from the past 50 years, where the hero would go to such an area for whatever reason... and yeah it'd be huts. And in fact, it would be written in such a way that some natives joined the white colonizer, wear their clothes, live in houses, etc... and they would be considered traitors for "not staying true to the ways of their ancestors". That being: living in huts.

@silverspookgames Right, I'm gonna stop looking at "ethnic stereotypes in european comics" on google images. Geez.
