The Hawaiian Kingdom emerged from the arrival of Polynesians from other Pacific islands and later the unification of the islands by Kamehameha the Great. The Kingdom of Hawaii had a monarchy government system, where the rulers were of the same family and royal blood. King Kalakaua was the last king of Hawaii and Queen Lili’uokalani was the last ruler of Hawaii. While Queen Lili’uokalani was locked away from her throne, she sat under house-arrest in the hopes the next heir to the throne, Princess Ka’iulani would make a change for the better of Hawaii’s sovereignty. Into the present, the Hawaiian Monarchy has been overthrown, annexed and in control by the United States of America. Many factors and events have led and caused the overthrow of the

The United States has inflicted imperialism on the island Hawaii on January 17, 1893. They did this by overthrowing the government which was a monarchy and its ruler was Queen Liliuokalani. Then by overthrowing the sugar planters who overthrew the Queen, President William Mckinley was able to obtaining the territory for the U.S after the Spanish-American war. The U.S wanted to obtain Hawaii because of its monopoly on Sugar and its Sugar exports to The United States. The United States wanted to obtain the territory also to get rid of taxes on them and the business, and wealthy people were losing their ability to manipulate the government and wanted it as a naval base like pearl harbor.
The United State’s annexation of Hawaii in 1898 led to the gradual destruction of the Hawaiian culture and the almost-extinction of native-born Hawaiians. The majority of the Hawaiian natives opposed the annexation of Hawaii and wanted to maintain their sovereignty. Although the Japanese could have taken over the Hawaiian islands if the United States had not, the annexation of Hawaii by the U.S. was unjustified because of the treatment of the monarchy and natives, the infringement of the natives’ self-established culture and government, and the natives’ overwhelming opposition to the U.S’s involvement in Hawaii.
Hawaii’s culture is about 1500 years old. The culture started when Polynesians voyaged to Hawaii and settled there. Hawaiian culture is based on three main aspects. Food such as broiling pig, taro and banana. Dance including the hula or as it was traditionally called Kahiko and warfare/weapons examples including the Koa and different forms of training and attach techniques. These three aspects will come to be the backbone of Hawaiian culture.

After watching the film called ‘Act of War’, I again felt that countries’ do not stand for justice but only pursue their national interests. The reason why Hawaii was so desirable to the United States was the imperialistic characteristic that America had at that time. Even a small island or land is into the consideration of taking over. In detail, the Americans wanted to use the land as their military base and a strategic spot for expanding their imperialism to Asia. The fact that American continent was far away from Asian and European continent, made them realize that in order to empower their global power they need to first dominate the closest countries, even a small land that they consider it trivial. By taking over quickly, a lot of aspects of Hawaiian culture got distorted

Few activities are seen as quite so Californian as surfing. From the Beach Boys to the fashion of "surfer dudes", pop culture has seen to it that the existence of surfing and California and incredibly intertwined. Surfing, as defined by the Oxford dictionary, is "the sport or pastime of riding a wave toward the shore while standing or lying on a surfboard". Surfing was a tradition for the Hawaiian people since the early 5th century, and quickly became an integral part in Hawaiian culture. When the British colonists discovered Hawaii in the late 1700s, Christian missionaries placed surfing on hiatus, citing that such an activity was the devil's work. However, the early 1900s saw a revitalization in surfing as it became the mainstream

As most people imagine about Hawaii, it was a place of alluring paradise, from sensations, views, activities, to whom I was surrounded by.
