Honolulu History Image

Honolulu History

The first ancestors of today’s Hawaiians were part of a great Polynesian migration that settled on a series of islands that stretched between Hawaii, New Zealand, and Easter Island. Sailing from Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands sometime around 500 A.D., these first settlers sailed north to Hawaii, which they called “the land of raging fire.”

These settlers established a new culture that proclaimed each island a separate kingdom, and the inhabitants traded sailing for fishing and farming. They built temples and established plantations from which they harvested native foods such as taro, breadfruit, and yams.

Fair Harbor

In 1778, British explorer Captain James Cook sailed into Waimea Bay on Kauai, where the population, who had never seen a person with white skin, welcomed him as a god. Sailing across uncharted waters in search of the fabled Northwest Passage that was said to link the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, Cook stumbled upon the Hawaiian Islands by chance and named them the Sandwich Islands, in honor of the Earl of Sandwich, who had bankrolled the expedition.

After an unsuccessful attempt to locate the Northwest Passage, Cook returned to the Big Island where he would ultimately be killed in a fight, a “fatal catastrophe” that would see the British sailors returning to their homeland. Hawaii was now on the sea charts and would become a stopping point for traders on the fur route between Canada and China.

By the late eighteenth century, powerful Hawaiian rulers battled for control of the islands. King Kamehameha’s forces were triumphant, uniting the islands under his kingdom and Honolulu was proclaimed the capital city.   

Little more than a collection of small huts near the water during the time of Kamehameha’s invasion, Honolulu’s deep harbor became known to European shipping merchants as the ideal place to set anchor and as more ships came, the town began to grow.
