Hey. This is a really important studio.
I was searching thru studios and I saw that there was nothing really about Hawai'i.
I'm here to tell you about how Hawai'i became a state.
Lili'uokalani is the last (only for now hopefully) Hawaiian Monarch. He ali'i wahine 'o ia.
In 1843 we held our soverignty.
in 1893, we lost our monarchy.
We, the hawaiians were forcefully annexed to America to gun point threat. Such as the Bayonet constitution that King Kalākaua was forced to sign to protect his people. And that was only the start. Lili'uokalani was illegally overthrown in her own palace by American military.
It was very possible to go to war beforehand. But...
"To avoid any collision of armed forces and perhaps loss of life. I do, under this protest, and impelled by said forces, yield my authority until such time as the United States shall, upon being the facts being presented to it, undo the action of its representative, and reinstate me in the authority which I claim as the constitutional sovereign of the Hawaiian Islands."
The battle is not with war, but with words. Kū pa'a! Stand firm Hawaiians! Our kingdom shall prevail!.
I'm a Hawaiian and I will stand firm for my country!
