Native Truth – Cookie Akau Gaspar

This week on TNT: In the wake of the Corona Virus, I discuss the the historical reality of foreign diseases being used against the Hawaiian people with my guest, Native Hawaiian activist, Cookie Akau Gaspar, the co-host of Songs of Sovereignty. We talk about the Hawaiian Kingdom (then and now) and the frustration many of us are feeling over the lack of leadership in Hawaii with regard to protecting the people from CoVid19.
