Hawaiian Families    10/5/06 Dr. Onaga History of the Islands Hawaiian legends  is that the island were born of the gods Papa and Wakea. These same gods gave birth to the taro plant, sourse of Hawaiian staple food  called poi, and then the first Hawaiian. In Hawaiian tradition, the land, the people and their food are all siblings in one  harmonious family. Hawaiians began to sustain contact with the new international world with the  arrival of the British Captain James Cook in 1778. The chief Kamehameha united the Hawaiian Islands into a single political unit  and established an internationally recognized monarchy. For over a century when most of the non Western world was being colonized by  European and American powers, the kingdom of Hawaii existed as an  independent country with it’s own monarchy, all of which was conducted in the  Hawaiian language.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
