On July 6, 1844, the United States recognized the Hawaiian Kingdom as an independent State and entered into extensive treaty and diplomatic relations with the Hawaiian Kingdom, where the United States maintained an embassy in Honolulu and Consulates throughout the islands, and the Hawaiian Kingdom maintained an embassy in Washington, DC, and consulates throughout the United States. Keanu Sai’s talk addresses the question: What happened to the Hawaiian Kingdom, and why did the US Congress enact a joint resolution in 1993 apologizing for the admitted illegal overthrow of the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom?
