About Hawaii State

Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States, and is the most recent to join the Union on August 21,1959. Hawaii is the only state located in the Oceania and the only archipelago. It is the 8th smallest and 11th least populous state of USA.

History of Hawaii

The first recorded settlers in Hawaii were the Polynesians of the Marquesas Islands. These settlers arrived on the islands some 1500 years ago, sailing for over 2000 miles in canoes. The second wave of immigrants came 500 years later when settlers from Tahiti arrived on the islands.

Over the centuries, the culture of the state was molded, bringing the culture of the hula to rise and define the islands. It was in 1778 when Captain James Cook set foot on the Waimea Bay in Kauai, and named the islands "Sandwich Islands" to honor the Earl of Sandwich. Cook is credited for opening Hawaii to the western world.

In 1791, Kamehameha - a North Kobala native - united all the major islands and created one royal kingdom in 1810. The first Protestant missionaries arrived in 1820, and opened the island to seamen, traders, and sea travel. It was in 1893 that American colonists arrived and eventually overthrew the kingdom in 1898, when they became a United States territory.

During the 20th century, with the boom of the islands' sugar and pineapple economy, immigrants from all over the world began arriving, with the largest immigrants coming from Japan, China, the Philippines, and Portugal.

It was in August 21, 1959 that the islands became a US state, quickly bringing the islands to modernization and the development of its strong tourism economy.
