North Kohala Public Library presents a Hana Hou! “talk story” session on How Hawaii Became a State, with local storyteller and historian Boyd Bond. On Monday, March 23rd at 6:30 p.m., Bond will discuss how the Kingdom of Hawaii was a sovereign nation with embassies in 90 countries until the Queen was removed from her throne in January 1893. Between the kingdom and statehood, the islands were briefly a Republic until 1900, and then a Territory of the USA before becoming a State in 1959.
But why was the Queen removed? And why didn’t the Hawaiians resist any of these changes? Or did they?
