History

 

The Polynesian came first to Hawaii about 500 years after Christ. The first European on the islands was Captain James Cook in 1778. The Polynesian taught he was a God, but when he was back, two years later, he was killed by the island people. Soon after that, the islands were gathered under a local king, Kamehameha I, and his descendants rule Hawaii to 1872. In 1893, the US consul John L. Stevens got control over the kingdom, and in 1900, Hawaii was placed under USA. Under the 2nd world war, the Japanese attacked the navy base Pearl Harbour on the 7th of December 1941. This got the Americans into the war. After the war, over 90% voted that they wanted to stay American. 21st of August 1959 Hawaii became USA’s 50th federal state.
