I started coming to the islands when I was in the Army during the 1960s. I traveled back and forth. I finally settled on Maui in the late 1990s.
I came as an outsider. As an outsider, I have no business telling a local how to run their island. I will leave before I try to change their home. Cane burning was one of things I fell in love with. You know, part of the culture.
Now I'll cut to the chase - move if you don't like it.
