Aloha Betrayed: Native Hawaiian Resistance to American by Noenoe K. Silva

By Noenoe K. Silva

In 1897, as a white oligarchy made plans to permit the us to annex Hawai'i, local Hawaiians equipped a huge petition force to protest. Ninety-five percentage of the local inhabitants signed the petition, inflicting the annexation treaty to fail within the U.S. Senate. This occasion was once unknown to many modern Hawaiians until eventually Noenoe okay. Silva rediscovered the petition within the means of learning this e-book. With few exceptions, histories of Hawai'i were established completely on English-language assets. they've got no longer taken into consideration the hundreds of thousands of pages of newspapers, books, and letters written within the mom tongue of local Hawaiians. by way of conscientiously interpreting lots of those records, Silva fills a vital hole within the ancient list. In so doing, she refutes the long-held concept that local Hawaiians passively permitted the erosion in their tradition and lack of their state, displaying that they actively resisted political, fiscal, linguistic, and cultural domination. Drawing on Hawaiian-language texts, basically newspapers produced within the 19th century and early 20th, Silva demonstrates that print media was once critical to social communique, political organizing, and the perpetuation of Hawaiian language and tradition. a robust critique of colonial historiography, Aloha Betrayed presents a much-needed historical past of local Hawaiian resistance to American imperialism.
