Aloha Aina means "love of the land."With Pua, we discuss the significance of 3rd party emergence in Hawaii. What goes on behind the scenes in the founding of a 3rd party and what are the challenges? We touch upon Hawaii’s history including the continued systemic oppression and generational trauma that many Native Hawaiian Pacific Islanders face.  How do these policies still affect Hawaii and beyond?Tune in next Monday!
