The islands were first settled by Polynesians from other Pacific islands by the 9th century. After James Cook first visited the islands in 1778, they were frequented by traders, but the British made on effort to colonize Hawaii. American missionaries converted Hawaiians to Christianity, and businesses were founded in the sugar and pineapple trade. United States recognition came in the 1840s, followed by reciprocal trade agreements. In 1893, the native royalists were defeated, Queen Liliuokalani was deposed, and the Republic of Hawaii was established the following year. Hawaii was annexed to the United States in 1898. The territory of Hawaii was organized in 1900.

1778-Explored by James Cook for England 1820-Permanently settled by American missionaries 1959-Admitted to the Union as the 50th state.
