In the Republic of Hawaii, citizens could camp by the roadside.“Let every elderly person, woman and child lie by the roadside in safety," So says Māmalahoe, or Law of the Splintered Paddle enshrined in the state constitution, Article 9, Section 10.

Not so in Maui. Here residents who are locked out of any affordable rentals sleep beside the roads only to be routed out by the police and bulldozers.

Is Māmalahoe null and void? Is there no place that the elderly, women and children can sleep in safety?

Maui makes illegal long-term camping, boarding houses, mobile homes, hostels, cabins, cottages, and short-term rentals. Where are people supposed to sleep?

Māmalahoe. Let every elderly person, woman and child lie by the roadside in safety. So said Kamehameha.

Who will protect us against police and politicians?
