In an attempt to ensure her people the voice and protection they deserve, Queen Liliuokalani wished to create a new constitution. Being a queen who listens to her people, what sparked her goal of a new conversation was that she had been approached by many natives, all alluding to the official proclamation on a new constitution. “Until these conversations, it had not occurred to me as possible to take such a step in the interest of the native people; but after these parties had spoken to me, I began to give the subject my careful consideration” (227). Queen Liliuokalani began to chase the idea of a new constitution, one that would allow the people more power as well as strengthening the monarchy Her failed attempts at reconstructing her nation 's constitution angered those with financial interests both in Hawaii and outside of Hawaii.

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.

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.
This shows how Hawaiians would back each other up and never give up on each other no matter what. Also how the trainings they did helped them throughout their journey.

It states “Kamehameha learned the rules of warfare practiced in Hawai’i.

Settlers from the United States gained power in the Hawaiian islands through the sugar industry and moved their way along the government of Hawaii so far up, to the point that many of them wanted to overthrow the monarchy, Queen Liliuokalani, from her seat of power, and annex Hawaii for the benefit of the United States. Although Hawaii would not be annexed until 1898, during the Spanish American War. The reason that the United States wanted to annex the Hawaiian Islands during the war, was because of its strategic position and value in the Pacific, but also because of the economic buff the island 's sugar industry would give to the USA’s
In the article by Anthony F. C. Wallace, “The Hunger for Indian Land in Andrew Jackson’s America,” the reasons for America's need for Indian land is discussed. The purpose of this article is to explain the Indian removal that occurred under Andrew Jackson’s presidency.

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.

Into the present, the Hawaiian Monarchy has been overthrown, annexed and in control by the United States of America.
In Chief Tecumseh’s speech, he describes the tyranny and conflict between the united states government and the native peoples. He explains that the natives should not sell their lands, for they have no right to do so because the land belongs to all people and not one group. Tecumseh shows this when he writes, “Sell a country?! Why not sell the air, the great sea, as well as the earth” (L. 30). The air, the sea, and the earth are priceless in the eyes of many, he parallels these three with the selling of a country to demonstrate how the natives value their land.
There are two kinds of people, the people who persist and try without giving up, and the people who make up excuses for why they aren't doing anything.
