Hawai'i is the southernmost state in the USA

The Hawaiian Archipelago hosts eight national parks, two renowned World Heritage Sites: Papahānaumokuākea, a Marine National Monument and Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and an expansive Biosphere Reserve. More park info below.

Six major islands: Hawai'i Island, Maui, Lāna'i, Moloka‘i, O'ahu and Kaua'i.

Honolulu is on the island of O'ahu.

The main Hawaiian Islands consist of eight volcanic islands that range in age from active lava flows on the east side of the Big Island to seven million-year-old Kauai. Coral reefs near urbanized areas, such as Honolulu, Wailuku, and Kahului, have experienced increasing stress from ever-increasing population and other pressures.

Question: What would locals like visitors to know about Hawai'i? (poster)

Hawaiian: He aha ka ‘ike ko‘iko‘i a kūpono no nā malihini e kipa ana mai i Hawai‘i? (Literal translation: What is the required and appropriate knowledge for the newcomer visiting Hawai‘i?)

@_iwakeli_i: That they are visiting both a natural AND a cultural landscape threatened by settler occupation and militarization.

@kuahawaii: That they gain understanding of our people/community, our recent history and relationships with each other and the environment.

    Quotes

    The word wiki is from a Hawaiian in fact. And so Wikipedia literally means 'quick education'. But it came about because the guy who came up with all the wiki websites (wiki is a class of website, Wikipedia is just one of them) was back in the '90s in Hawaii at an airport, and he saw that the bus was called the Wiki Wiki Bus, the quick bus, and he was looking for a word that sounded and felt quick to go with this very new kind of website that he wanted to come up with for programmers to share and edit information. And he decided to call his first website Wiki Wiki Web. And that's a silly little story, but the moment I tell that it goes from being a kind of made up word without places or faces behind it to being a specific story about one man who is still alive, who we can ask questions, doing very particular things in the late 1990s, and that's where this particular tool came from, that's how it was born. And that's why we have this…we're all speaking a little bit of Hawaiian without even knowing it.

    Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana’ole Festival

    Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana’ole was the Founder of the Hawaiian Civic Club movement and proponent of the Hawaiian Homestead Act of 1920. Prince Kūhiō was a prince of the reigning House of Kalākaua when the government of Queen Lili`uokalani was illegally overthrown in 1893. He later went on to become a politician in the Territory of Hawai`i as delegate to the United States Congress. Prince Kūhiō founded the first Hawaiian Civic Club on Dec 7, 1918, and led the passage of the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act of 1921. Prince Kuhio, in founding the civic clubs desired to help elevate and promote their social, economic, civic and intellectual status, all while they would promote the principles of good government as they themselves became outstanding citizens, leaders in their communities so that they could and would take an active part and place in the civic progress of Hawaii and its people. He felt it was the responsibility of each Hawaiian to bring to realization of these aims. In the early 1970s, parades honoring Prince Kūhiō were held in our island communities. Hawaiian Civic Clubs of O‘ahu would gather in the communities of Papakolea, Nanakuli, Kailua and Hawaii Kai to host this annual event, with a pageantry of floats, equestrian units, marching units, and car cades of dignitaries…all in celebration of the life and times of Prince Kūhiō. In the year 2002, the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, through its non-profit entity, Hawaii Maoli, applied for and received a grant from the Hawaii Tourism Authority/County Product enrichment program to reinstate this auspicious event. It is our humble way of honoring a citizen of royal heritage whose insight and commitment laid the framework for organizations and institutions we have today. Today, the activities to honor Kūhiō have grown from the humble parades in those early years to month long activities.


    Prince Kūhiō Day is an official holiday in the state of Hawaiʻi in the United States.[1] It is celebrated annually on March 26, to mark the birth of Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole — heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, prince of the House of Kalākaua, and later territorial delegate to the United States Congress.[2] It was established in 1949 by the legislature of the Territory of Hawaii.

He later went on to become a representative in the Territory of Hawaii as delegate to the United States Congress, and as such is the first native Hawaiian and only person ever elected to that body who was born a royal. - Wikipedia

    The Hawaiian Kingdom, founded by King Kamehameha in 1810, was a self-governing nation until January 17, 1893, when U.S. diplomats and Marines supported non-Native businessmen in the overthrow of the Hawaiian government. This symposium, held in conjunction with the National Museum of the American Indian’s new exhibition,E Mau Ke Ea: The Sovereign Hawaiian Nation, features Native Hawaiian scholars, leaders, activists, and culture keepers who discuss the resurgence of Native Hawaiian nationalism today. The symposium title—derived from the second half of a phrase from King Kamehameha that has become the Hawaiian state motto—suggests “towards what is right, correct, proper.” The symposium offers a variety of perspectives on what the future of Hawaiian sovereignty might best look like. National Museum of the American Indian curator Douglas Herman moderates the program.
