When there is light shed on the history of the native Hawaiian people some can not help but agree with what Haunani- Kay Trask is taking about in her book “From a Native Daughter”, because the American people just looked at the Hawaiian Islands for themselves not in the interest of the Hawaiian people. Their interest got to the point that the United States annexed their islands. The Hawaiian people were not being helped or taken care of, but they were people being imperialized. ...view middle of the document...

Once the cultural change took place American businessmen charged into Hawaii. From here the Tyler Doctrine was introduced in 1842, which stated that Hawaii was a “U.S. sphere of influence” which basically told all of Europe to keep there hands off. This is one of the major examples on how America did not look into Hawai’i for the Native Hawaiians best interest but in their best interest for the American government instead. That they were only looking into the benefits of themselves thinking that they deserved this island much like what happened with the Native Americans. An example of this is when U.S House of Committee made a manifest Destiny statement to the Tyler Doctrine, stating “American should acknowledge their own interest” they also suggested that in Hawai’i “virtual right of conquest” over the “mind and heart” of the Hawaiian people. This is the very first unlawful thing the United States did concerning the Native Hawaiians. Out of nowhere they took this uneducated people in the ways of western civilization and used that to their advantage. From this doctrine it gave way to many new settlers to find there way into the Hawaiian Islands.

From outer influences in Hawaii the culture of the land changed no longer do they follow there traditional ways of life but formed into the western culture on life. In 1848 the Mahele

allowed foreigners to own their own land. From this the concept of owning land has been put into place and now foreigners are allowed to own land in Hawaii, by 1888 three quarters of arable land was owned by haole. This is when the Hawaii league, which was made up of white sugar planters, wanted the United States to Annex Hawaii. The annex did no go through, though the king of Hawaii at the time did want to make some form of peace on his land. So he made up the Reciprocity Treaty, this would satisfy the planters and protects the Hawaiian independence, with this treaty in place the United State, France, and Britain would agree to respect and maintain the independence of Hawai’i, this treaty died when brought to the U.S. Senate. Given the chance to let Hawai’i be it’s own people again the U.S. shot them down. Why is it that this Treaty did not go through in Senate, was it not in there best enough interest? America says it wants to keep peace but at a time when peace is needed and will happen if let be, they don’t let it happen, instead held back.

In 1872 Kalakaua whom is pro-American takes the throne and agrees to negotiate a reciprocity treaty. With this new treaty now in place and the sugar plantation on the rise, it opened a portal of immigration to the Hawaiian Islands. There was a mass demand for plantation workers and they were coming in from all over Asia. This new immigration brought the native population to less then half of the population while haole and Asians were 55% of the

population. This was not the only thing in favor to the U.S that Kalakaua put into action during his...
