Whoever heard of Hawaii would know that it was the 50th state of the United States. The sunny weather of the year, beautiful natural scenery, hula dance and unique culture, as well as many interesting tourist attractions, have been attached to Hawaii. However, the relationship between the US, Hawaii, and the natives of Flights to Hawaii is one of the tricky things that may not be known to many people.
The native Hawaiians are a race of its own
Hawaii residents (Hawaiian) are not named after the US state (such as Californian, Texan, New Yorker, etc.). In contrast, the US state is named after the people of Hawaii.
Hawaiians, also known as Kanaka male, are indigenous people (and descendants) of the island of Hawaii. Their ancestors were native Polynesians who sailed to Hawaii and inhabited the islands there around the 5th century.
Native Hawaiian or Native Hawaiian is a racial classification recognized by the United States. At the 2010 census, 527,077 people reported that they were native Hawaiians or mixed Hawaiian blood. There are at least 8,000 pure-blooded Hawaiians left in the world. Continues to Flights to Cancun
The natives of Hawaii are almost extinct
The first contact with westerners occurred in 1778 when Captain James Cook, a British explorer, sailed by ship HMS Resolution to Kealakekua Bay in Kona on the Great Island of Hawaii. It is estimated that between 400,000 to one million indigenous Hawaiians live on the big island of Hawaii at that time. Back to Flights to London.
Being isolated from land and others, the disease known throughout the world is unknown in Hawaii. As a result, within a century the natives of Hawaii have fallen in number to about 40,000 due to the outbreak of smallpox, measles, influenza, sexually transmitted diseases, whooping cough, and the common cold.
They form an independent and sovereign state
The Kingdom of Hawaii is an internationally recognized monarchy that is involved in bilateral trade and friendship agreements with other countries including the United States (1826), England (1836), France (1839), Denmark (1846), Hamburg (1848) ), Sweden and Norway (1852), Tahiti (1853), Bremen (1854), Belgium and the Netherlands (1862), Italy and Spain (1863), Swiss Confederation (1864), Russia (1869), Japan (1871), New South Wales (1874), Portugal (1882), Hong Kong (1884), and Samoa (1887).
They became literate after contact with the West
Christian missionaries first came to Hawaii in 1820. Hawaiian children started school and learned to read and write in Hawaiian. In 1869, a newspaper article reported that Hawaii was the only government of the Pacific region to attend the Paris exhibition.
In the event, Hawaii exhibited newspapers, Bible, textbooks, law books, agricultural products, and other ‘civilization’ examples. European commentators are reportedly surprised to learn that ordinary people in Hawaii are also taught the same things that at that time were only taught to the European elite.
Their government was taken over illegally
On January 17, 1893, a violent overthrow of the Hawaiian government took place. US Marines from the USS Boston, two US shipping companies, and US Secretary John L. Stevens landed in Honolulu Harbor and together with US and European businessmen an illegal coup against Queen Lili’uokalani.
Their motives are greed, land tenure, and control over the sugar industry. The businessmen and sugar planters are led by Sanford Dole, dubbed “sugarcoat.” Sanford’s cousin James Dole, sometimes called “pineapple king”, started the pineapple industry in Hawaii by opening the Hawaiian Pineapple Company. Sanford Dole is the only American who becomes president of an independent foreign country, despite being self-imposed.
