Twenty-nine teachers participated in a 4-week National Endowment for the Humanities institute which covered topics from pre-contact Hawaiian population estimates to formation of plantation workforces to contemporary sovereignty issues. The lessons the participants developed are divided into nine sections. Section 1, "Geography," contains articles on the origins of the Hawaiian Islands and the geography of the Pacific. Section 2, "Religion and Mythology," covers Hawaiian legends, myths, and creation stories. Section 3, "Voyages, Migration, and Contact," covers the origins, migrations, and early settlements of the Hawaiian population. Section 4, "Monarchy," includes histories of the Hawaiian monarchy and its effect on the politics and economics of Hawaii. Section 5, "Plantation Life," contains articles about the influx of Japanese and Chinese workers and how this influenced the racial makeup of the islands. Section 6, "Labor and Economy," looks at Hawaii's economic history with special focus on the "Hilo Massacre." Section 7, "World War II," covers the social, cultural, and political changes caused by World War II. Section 8, "Contemporary Issues," looks at Hawaiian sovereignty, environmental issues, and native Hawaiian rights. Section 9, "Cultural Topics," covers Hawaiian value systems, language, food, and dance. (KCM)
