One very strong piece of writing,”Queen Liliuokalani’s letter of protest to McKinley,” written by Queen Liliuokalani herself, is a letter protesting how her and her fellow Hawaiians should have an ability to vote on the regards of Hawaii’s independence. This letter was written in July of 1897. Back then, Hawaii was not part of the United States. The purpose of this writing was to change the treaty sent to the US. In her letter, Queen Liliuokalani discusses how in eight months she would “give” the Hawaiian islands to the United States with a treaty.
Today, Hawaii had one of the world's’ most multicultural populations. If we didn’t imperialize on Hawai who knows what history could be like today, but I know it has helped the U.S. in battles, economy, and dominance over communist countries today. Today, Hawaii is granted representation in the congress and senate, and the birthplace of our current president, Barack Obama. Hawaii, as a U.S. state, is guaranteed the freedom of all citizens and safe from foreign aggression. If we didn’t imperialize on Hawai who knows what history could be like today, but I know it has helped the U.S. in battles, economy, and dominance over communist countries
The shocking outcome of Kahahawai’s murder trial not only infuriated Hawaiian residents, but destroyed any trust they had with the haole (white elite), calling them “traitors,” and always questioning their “conspiratorial maneuverings” to defend other haole (Rosa, 96-97). The racial hierarchy that created this distrust also served to reinforce a separation between the haole and native Hawaiians, thus leading to many natives questioning their power within their own society. They attempted to identify a “local identity,” which “position[ed] oneself in relationship to power and place,” and found that their self-right to establish pono, or community harmony, was now under the control of the few haole (Rosa, 101). Not only was this insulting and detrimental to native political identity, but caused natives to question their personal identity as well. Even their phrase ‘local,’ used to differentiate themselves from the haole, was problematic.
Kamehameha was doubtless born in 1758 and died in 1819 on the island of Hawaii. Growing up, Kamehameha became one of the best warriors in the history of Hawaii. George Washington was constitutional in 1732 and died in 1799. Before Washington became the first president he was the commander in chief of the colonials during the revolutionary war, later becoming the founding father of Amerind selfless. The world we live in today would not be what it is without the influence of George Washington and Kamehameha.

“Sarah Nowak -- Scenic Artist” I have always been a follower, whether it be because I was afraid of screwing up and everyone blaming me, or just not wanting the responsibility; I do not know. That changed, however, when I joined my school’s theatre program as a set painter. I began there as a follower, too. Suddenly, for the second winter show, there were no leaders available for paint crew, so I became one. That was my first taste of leadership.
From the seventh to the nineteenth century, the Cherokee people underwent an important time of gender and cultural change. In Cherokee Women: Gender and Cultural Change, 1700-1835, the author Theda Perdue reconstructs the history of the Cherokee people by placing women as the focus and by examining their gender roles. Throughout the novel, Perdue successfully argues previous narratives made about the Cherokee’s history and offers an alternative to the reading of their history. In order to support such an alternative, the author has created a detailed timeline of the events that lead to such a shift in the gender roles of the Cherokee from 1700 to 1835.
In 1810, Kamehameha united the Hawaiian Islands for the first time. Kamehameha was a brave and strong warrior. The brave and strong warrior started to invade the Hawaiian Islands from 1795. The interesting thing about Kamehameha being the conqueror of all the islands was that he was not born into a position to be the chief of any islands. Kamehameha was an effective leader because he was kind, intelligent and had a healthy relationship with his people.
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. From 1795 to 1874, the Kamehameha Dynasty ruled over the kingdom of the Hawaiian islands. Up until the death of Kamehameha III, the U.S. had stayed out of interfering with the islands.
