How insulting... Anyhow...Top ten things to happen to Hawai'iin the past: #1 Kamehameha the Great brings together the islands #2 A Royal dynasty that lasts five generations [From the Kamehameha 1st - Kamehameha 5th] including all hawaiian Islands #3 The missionaries come/ and or / Cook 'Discovers' Hawai'i #4 Hula is said to be vulgar and pagan - Taken from the Hawai'ian peoples. #5 Hula is brought back by King David Kalakaua - about 1884 i believe. #6 King Kalakaua is forced to give power to the Americans. #7 King Kalakaua Dies... Queen Lili'oukalani is heir apparent. #8 Queen Lili'oukalani is taken prisioner for over two years, and then forced to abdicate her rightful place on the throne - giving power to the caucasians. Leaving Hawai'ian Sovereignty at a disgusting low. #9 Annexation of the Hawai'ian Islands. #10 Bombing of Pearl Harbor

Give Hawaii back to the people. Independence. However, why should we expect any US Prezident to give us back our islands when they also screwed the American Natives.
