History of Hawaii

By Nikko Cracchiolo

How was Hawaii discovered?

I think that Hawaii should be study in school because it was a very big resource for world war 2 and that the us put millions in to the pineapple industry. around 300 B.C the Polynesians discovered Hawaiian islands and settled them. the Polynesians started there journey to marques islands, because they noticed that the birds every year where flying south east for the winter. they wandered why this is. So they got in the outriggers and paddled over 1,500 miles and found the islands. they got back in there canoe and got people to travel and build a city.

The Rich Culture

Several theories describe migration to Hawaii. The one-migration theory suggests a single settlement. A variation on the one-migration theory instead suggests a single, continuous settlement period. Several "multiple migration" theories exist. One variation suggests that the original migration could have been followed by settlers from the Marquesas Islands, and then later by Tahitians.
