Many of the people living in Hawaii are actually not of Hawaiian descent, but the Hawaiian natives are still thriving and are living across the planet.
Hawaiian Culture Today
The global reaction to the contact with the Hawaiians has been very minimal. Other than people now vacationing in Hawaii, the contact with James cook has not really affected the rest of the world.
~ On January 18th, 1778, James cook was the first European to find the Hawaiian islands.
~ The Natives there welcomed the Europeans and traded with them.
~ The European ships then left for a year to look for the western end of the northwest passage, then returned back to Hawaii.
~ At the time Cook returned, The Lono festival (a festival for their God,) was happening, which had great religious significance.
~ Cook and his crew were treated as gods, but as one of the crew members died, they were proven to be mortal.
Cultural Contact Cont.
~ The relations between the Hawaiians and the Europeans became tense, so
the Europeans decided to leave. But as the seas were too rough, it was only a week before they were forced to return to Hawaii.
~There was a dispute between the two cultures when the Europeans returned, which resulted in the Hawaiians throwing rocks at the ships as they came back, and a mob resulting in 30 Natives and James Cook dying. Cook's crew then returned to England.
