Videos of Hawaiian History


Our videos of Hawaiian history range from the quixotic debut of Captain James Cook at Kealakekua Bay, the tragically madcap character of Hawaii’s first encounter with the West seems to have established an enduring pattern for its relationship with the modern world–a pattern by which many Hawaiians would assert that they found themselves repeatedly hornswoggled by white men who dismissed them as savages at worst and naïve, good-natured rustics at best. But the true nature of the confrontation has proceeded from the conflict between the values of a “sacred society” such as ancient Hawaii, which emphasized regulating man’s relationship with the gods and his environment. In Western society, however, the emphasis is largely on individual and especially property rights–which didn’t exist (in the same sense that we understand them) in ancient Hawaii.
