Genocide of Indigenous Polynesian By White Americans (Hawaii Is Not Yours To Take)

White settlers with American Passports,
Hawaii does not belong to you,
White sand and mountains spitt fire,
Stolen after raping of sisters,

Kānaka ʻōiwi, kānaka maoli, and Hawaiʻi maoli,
Indigenous Polynesian people of the Hawaiian Islands,
Are the true caretakers of paradise,

In 1893, hands carried guns,
Aided American sugar plantation owners,
Illegally overthrowing Hawaii’s monarch,

Destroying sacred sites,
Implementing capitalism,
Carrying disease,

After 100 years,
Clinton apologized,
Yet the damage was done,

Today, sovereignty is fought for,
Independence is yearned for,

White settlers,
Have taken control of the land,
Sanford Dole and James Dole resurrected,

Systematic oppression of culture and language,
Through economics and education,
Colonization lives on,
