Abstract:This thesis explores the development of the Hawaiian antislavery movement among the members of the Sandwich Islands Mission during the late 1830s and early 1840s. At first, a handful of individuals stationed in Hawaii perceived their participation as a necessary part of their religious duty that was parallel to their work to evangelize and educate Native Hawaiians. Involvement in the movement was used to validate the efforts of the missionaries in Hawaiʻi. However, what began as an expression of antislavery sentiment shifted over time, as a result of the growing tensions between the ABCFM and the Sandwich Islands Mission, as well as the changing role of the missionaries in Hawaiian Society. This thesis also explores characterization of Native Hawaiians as slaves and the ways these concepts changed over the course of the movement to increasingly encompass aspects of Native Hawaiian governance and land ownership.
