People as Livestock?

Colonial powers see Native people as expendable livestock, as cowish critters collateral with stolen land.

Selfish history teaches of discovery - ignoring colonial expansionist genocide.

Hostile miscalculations by Capt. James Cook in Hawai'i brought death at the Battle of Kealakekua on 14 Feb 1779. This defeat of British Empire expeditionary forces led by naval officer Cook is misreported, censored and downplayed by imperial histories, but some Hawaiians recognize a significant victory. Locals must somehow resist when aggressive intruders break the peace & local protocol.

How we view history is important!
