The history of Hawaii is full of epic voyages of discovery and idyllic isolation, kings and queens, heroes and villains, the rise and fall of kingdoms, treachery, greed, revolutions and even war. Maria Quiban and our featured experts take us on a journey, covering almost 2,000 years of Polynesian history and cultural heritage, examining the history of Hawaii from the first Polynesian explorers to the splendors of the 19th century Hawaiian Monarchy.
