I was sorry to read this morning of Frenchy DeSoto’s passing.
She was always a force to be reckoned with.
I did a quick search and turned up my photo of Frenchy at a 1976 protest against the army’s use of Makua Valley. She’s standing with Randy Kalahiki, another key participant in the Hawaiian movement who died back in 1994.
Then I noticed a comment left on Maoliworld:
Aloha Aunty Frenchy Desoto please say, “Hello to my Uncle Randy Kalahiki”
I’m sure she will.
