History, Fast and Furious
Hawaii became the 50th state of the USA in 1959, but 1,500 years earlier is where things first started. Polynesians from the Marquesas Islands were the first wave of migration sailing over 2000 miles in canoes to migrate to the Islands.
500 years later, settlers from Tahiti arrived, bringing their beliefs and socail systems based on kapu (taboo). Hawaiian culture flourished, hula and surfing developed, but tribal divisions were common.
In 1778 Captain James Cook landed on Kauai at Waimea Bay. Naming the archipelago the "Sandwich Islands" in honor of the Earl of Sandwich. A year later in Kealakekua Bay Cook was killed.
In 1791, Kamehameha united the divided tribes of Hawaii Island and went on to unify all of the Hawaiian Islands into one royal kingdom in 1810.
Then the first Protestant missionaries arrived, as well as seamen, traders and whalers, bringing with them religion, trade and disease.
By 1893, American Colonists who controlled much of Hawaii's economy overthrew the Hawaiian Kingdom in a peaceful, yet still controversial coup. In 1898, Hawaii became a territory of the United States.
In the 20th century, sugar and pineapple plantations brought new migrations of Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Portuguese immigrants.
On December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on Oahu. Four years later, on September 2, 1945, Japan signed its unconditional surrender on the USS Battleship Missouri, which still rests in Pearl Harbor today.
