I know Kuvira is here to conquer, I’m 95% sure she has engaged the bandits she arrested to steal the supplies from Opal and Kai to force the governor to let her his land, but look at this scene, look at the face of the man when he gives food to this child. I’m persuaded they, like Bolin, are here to help people. Maybe some of them know the plans of Kuvira and want what she wants, but with the way those guys bring food to this hungry people, I’m certain they’re happy to do it!
