|Abstract:||The creation of a hegemonic, master narrative for Hawaiʻi - sourced almost solely from English-language materials - has long offered a highly exclusive characterization of past events and figures in Hawaiian history. Elements within this dominant narrative not only shape understandings of specific individuals and actions but also work together to construct a general understanding of a people and their nation.
