  1. Wasn't the answer to number one Tahitians? I guess Polynesians works but Tahitians was right next to it.

  5. I learned a lot from this video! I agree that being informed about history makes people have a different perspective of the world. As a Peruvian, I can relate to another country trying to strip the native Peruvians (Incas and other cultures) from their traditions, their language and their religion, in order to force their views on us. My grandma only knew a handful of words and songs in Quechua (the language of the Inca empire), because she did not learn anything in school.

  11. The Americans almost did the same during the short time they were here, it has really impacted our society today. If you do not know how to speak English in the Philippines you are looked down upon and considered illiterate. It's like they treat you like another different kind of race. It's sad to see it today plus it happens too frequently in conversations, whispers and in school. I see and hear it happen to other people. Being dark skinned is a disliked feature here. This time our culture too, is sadly fading away.

  15. I learned all this in school and I don't live in Hawaii. They should teach this more often based on different perspectives.

  16. My school doesn't even teach us about Pearl Harbor! My dad asked why one day was important and I didn't know so he had to explain it to me! And we had to take an even longer moment of silence in school and like nobody knew why

  17. We were taught about this in school fam.

  18. I am pleased that I got every question correct, even though I haven't lived in Hawaii since 1999… but the reminders of how poorly treated the native population was, is, it's very heavy. I was blessed to have a variety of teachers in school there (public – no Kam school for this haole) that were very dedicated to making sure their students at least had the opportunity to learn the history and culture of what is, sadly, a disappearing people. And hula was fun! I still remember several dances and the Hawaiian words to many songs; every year, I sing "Silent Night" in Hawaiian, even if it's just to myself.

  22. Admit it, history is categorized as boring subject by majority that no one really care about or willingly to learn if it is not closely related to themselves unless it is brought to you. like a test or survey. This is also another sad fact that starts our ignorance and making all of these happened. We need a lot of history videos and reactions like this. To make it more understandable and felt much more related to us

  24. Thank you buzzfeed. You have no idea how excited and happy this made me to see this video appear on my feed. This needs to be a topic talked about I schools all over the US, not just here in Hawaii

  25. I know they cant include everything in one short video, but as a Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian), they missed so much important information. With the type of publicity Buzzfeed gets, this wouldve been the time to get raw with what has happened to my home and people by Europeans and Americans. And I wish they asked people of Hawaii who is well educated in these subjects to give them this information, like interviews with professors or advocates. I am glad that they made a video at all about Hawaiian History, but its still so vague and sugar coated. Hawaiian History was my favorite subject throughout my schooling, so forgive me for being a little frustrated. Hearing even the vague descriptions about my history still makes my blood boil and breaks my heart. Onipa'a kākou e nā po'e 'o Hawai'i!

  29. Very interesting! The same thing happened in Ireland. The British invaded, took the land from the native people and dethroned or executed the Kings. They also banned everything to do with the Irish culture, including the speaking of Gaelige, irish sports, dancing, religion, sharing of Gaelic history and imposed their own cultural ideas and language on the people. To stop the rising of the Republican ideals they eventually agreed to give back some land and created Northern Ireland, which is still part of the UK. Even to this day the British Government refuses reunification of the island and there is still a high level of disrespect and disregard for the Irish Culture in UK. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK which has a native language which is not protected by a government act or law.

  36. Hawaiians are racist, thinking that Americans are scums and pigs. If it wasn't for the U.S. buying Hawaii, they would be in the fields planting crops and living in poverty.
