    Ancient people from Polynesia sailed to Hawaii around 500 A.D.  They were the first and settlers for 500 years.  Around 1,000 A.D. Tahitian bullies came with their taboo (kapu) system of hierarchy, which lasted until 1819.  The warring native tribes weren’t united until 1791.  It wasn’t until 1898 that Hawaii was declared a territory of the United States.  In 1950, it became a state.
