Kamehameha was an effective leader because he made a better life for his people.
Washington knew a strong Constitution had to be in place, which is why he was responsible for the Constitutional Convention. The effects of his inaugural address and presidency really mattered, given he was the first of our many presidents. George Washington proved he truly cared for the American people and the country. He took charge and changed what had to be done, because his speech altered the government and society as we know it today; our Constitution, our executive and judicial branches, and our Supreme Court. While he did emphasize the need for a Constitution, he was not the only one responsible for it’s making.
Kamehameha was a warrior before the unification of the Hawaiian Islands. Kamehameha was just a district chief on the Big Island and Kamehameha soon ruled the Big Island after he and his men became stronger, He soon ruled other islands one at a time until eventually he had unified all the Hawaiian islands.

“The Speech at the Constitutional Convention” , given by Benjamin Franklin, was a moving point for our freedom. Franklin was a well respected man for doing many things for our country; such as serving as the president of Pennsylvania executive council and many other honorable positions (Franklin, Benjamin). Allowing him to elaborate was a key component of helping define the term American dream. Franklin being well respected and very charismatic allowed him to effectively broadcast why he believed that the constitution should be ratified. The constitution was an important symbol for demonstrating that the colonists were qualified for self rule.
Another trait in Aristotle’s eyes is the quality of being lifelike. In this sense, Okonkwo is lifelike because he is just like any other Umuofian. There are many men just like him, all owning large land, married to multiple wive, and having plenty of yams. If there are many other men like him, then certainly he is just an average person who is able to become the tragic hero, and this goes the same for the others. Okonkwo is very much like his brothers and sisters of the tribe, if not just a little bit angrier.
King Arthur is one of the best kings that has ruled over Britain, throughout all of history. Arthur ruled with honor, loyalty, and chivalry, which made him a great king. Many lessons that he learned on his journeys helped him to become the person that he is. Arthur’s journey becoming king can be seen in the novel The Sword in the Stone by T.H. White, and is very similar to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey.
He would always try to do what's best for his people. He is helpful and wise, which makes him even more special. From the time when he helped with the war torn land (23), to when he would place kapu’s (26), he was an amazing leader. Hawaii wouldn’t be the same without King Kamehameha. Without him, who knows, maybe the Hawaian Islands would still have separate leaders, and maybe wouldn’t be a part of America.
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.
Duke Kahanamoku was an Olympic surfer from Hawaii, he was born August 24, 1890 in the Kalia District of Honolulu. Kahanamoku introduced surfing to the world after it almost died out with other local Hawaiian traditions in the nineteenth century.

Understanding the culture of a nation, people, or group one must immerse themselves and experience the nation’s arts, beliefs, customs, practices, values, and social behaviors. By attending a cultural event, an individual is able to experience firsthand the diverse offerings of culture and artistic expression found in a community. At the moment I reside in upstate New York, Albany to be exact and there are no cultural events to attend; well none that are occurring the remainder of my Humanities course. I decided to choose a place I always wanted to visit, do some research online to learn a little about their culture. I chose Hawaii as the place to visit and after some probing, I become aware of how rich their culture is.
The Hawaiian Islands are an incredible place to visit and explore. I have visited there twice now, and the sights are amazing. This assignment came up right after I got back from my last trip, and one thing that had my interest while I was there was the islands’ formations. Flying in the first time, I enjoyed being able to see the islands come into view after being over water for 6 hours. Doing snorkeling adventures, I visited Molokini Crater.
