Storyboard Text

  • Hawaii
  • We want a provisional governement
  • Hawaii's government was a monarchy up until 1893. Queen Liliuokalani was the last queen that Hawaii had before she was overthrown by a party of American businessmen who demanded a provisional government.
  • After the Americans overthrew the Queen they wanted to annex Hawaii, but the Native Hawaiians did not want to be annexed so they made a petition that did not allow the US annex Hawaii
  • We dont want to be part of the US
  • The Hawaiian's success was short lived because after the USS Maine was blown up it indicated the start of the Spanish American war and the US needed to have a mid pacific fueling and naval base. The Hawaiian islands were the number one choice and a Joint Resolution was established where Hawaii was officially annexed, however they were not yet considered a state.
  • Hawaii was a United States territory until 1959 when it was finally brought in as a state.
  • Hawaii the 50th State
