Camille Kalama on Demilitarization, Environmental Justice and the Hawaiian Kingdom

On this episode, the NDN Collective Climate Justice team speaks with one of our NDN Collective Board Members, Camille Kalama, about the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility, a military fuel storage facility in Hawaii, and this facility’s implications for climate and environmental justice. 

Camille is a kanaka maoli (Native Hawaiian) from O’ahu, Hawai’i. Camille also served as a staff attorney with the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation from 2006 until 2019 after clerking for one year at the Hawaii Supreme Court.
