The United States colonized Hawaii officially in 1898 when President McKinley had a treaty of annexation signed that made Hawaii a territory of the US. :) _________________ There is no treaty of annexation for Hawaii; Hawaii technically isn't suppose to be part of the U.S. ------------------------ NO ONE colonized Hawai'i. A country can only colonize territories that are not self-governing. The British colonized the east coast of North America, which later became the U.S. The 13 original colonies were non self-governing territories before they were "colonized". Hawai'i had achieved it's independence in 1843, becoming the first non-European/non European-originating country to be recognized as a sovereign state. Because Hawai'i was indeed self-governing, it could NOT be colonized because it already had a recognized government. And there is NO treaty of annexation. The treaty submitted to the U.S. senate in 1887 failed due to political activism. Hawai'i was never legally annexed to the U.S.

In the Cook Islands it is 'Avaiki; the Maoris of Aotearoa (New Zealand) have Hawaiki; and in Samoa it is Savai'i.

How did Hawaii become the Republic of Hawaii?

After the 17 January 1893 overthrow of the ruling sovereign of the Hawaiian kingdom the oligarchic executive council that ruled had expected a quick and easy annexation by the United States. When that did not happen they needed to project an air of legitimacy to the outside world so they called an election for delegates to a constitutional convention that would create a new constitution for a "Republic" of Hawaiʻi. They faced an overwhelming majority of opposition in Hawaiʻi to their plan so they declared that 19 of the 37 delegates to the convention - a majority - would be appointed by the executive council and only 18 would be elected. Even that election was tainted as in order to vote you had to swear allegiance to the new Republic and foreswear the Hawaiian monarchy which was working to restore the Queen; in effect it was a one party election. In a nation that had over 100,000 people, a little over 4,000 qualified to vote in that election. The elected delegates met in convention, a constitution was drawn up, and on 4 July 1894 the "Republic of Hawaiʻi" was declared.
