Pre-contact Native Hawaiian "island politics" is used as a baseline for evaluating the last 200 years of Americanization. This course offers an in-depth understanding of the basic values, institutions, and practices of government in Hawai`i, setting up a conversation between indigenous (Native) Hawaiian, European, Asian and other Polynesian voices.
