According to traditional histories, the Hawai'ian Islands' first inhabitants arrived between the years 300 and 600 A.D. from Polynesian islands such as Tahiti, which lay more than 3,000 kilometers to the south. Captain James Cook of Britain, the first recorded European visitor, arrived in 1778.</P>-
Up until the late 18th century, independent chiefs and kings ruled each island in the Hawai'ian chain. In 1790, the chieftain Kamehameha became king of the island of Hawai'i and spent the next twenty years conquering the other islands. From 1810 until his death in 1819, he ruled the entire island chain as King Kamehameha I.-
In the year 1820, European missionaries sailed to the islands, intending to "civilize" the so-called "savages." As did other missionaries intent on saving souls according to their own lights, these religious zealots did considerable harm by suppressing and outlawing native Hawai'ian traditions, even going so far as to ban the Hawai'ian language. However, they did considerable good in the areas of public education and public health. One shining example is Father Damien, a Belgian Jesuit who worked with Hawai'ian natives suffering from leprosy. He established a leper colony on Molokai and moved to it when he contracted the dreaded disease in 1873. Father Damien continued to work with his flock until his death in 1889.
