History of Paradise

It is believed that Hawai'i was settled by Polynesians. They came here on canoes with many different animals, foods, and plants. In 1778, Captain James Cook happened upon the islands while attempting to find the Northwest Passage. He described the population to be abundant. Unfortunately the British brought diseases to these people, leaving the local population 130,000 in 1832. In 1810 King Kamehameha I united the islands creating the Hawaiian Kingdom. On August 21, 1959, Hawai'i was admitted as the 50th state of the United States of America.
