Discussion Questions
      • The writing of history (historiography) may or may not accurately reflect history. For 100 years, from the late 19th till the late 20th century, it was taught that Native Hawaiians did not oppose annexation by the United States. How did this view of history change in 1998 when hundred-year-old petitions opposing annexation were re-discovered?
      • How has this fact changed Native Hawaiians’ view of themselves?
