In 1897, as a white oligarchy made plans to permit the us to annex Hawai'i, local Hawaiians geared up an incredible 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 used to be unknown to many modern Hawaiians till Noenoe okay. Silva rediscovered the petition within the means of studying this ebook. With few exceptions, histories of Hawai'i were dependent solely on English-language resources. 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 carefully interpreting lots of those records, Silva fills a vital hole within the old list. In so doing, she refutes the long-held concept that local Hawaiians passively permitted the erosion in their tradition and lack of their kingdom, exhibiting that they actively resisted political, monetary, linguistic, and cultural domination. Drawing on Hawaiian-language texts, essentially newspapers produced within the 19th century and early 20th, Silva demonstrates that print media was once imperative 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.
