Hawaii was the last state to join the union of America and it is made up of 8 islands. The native population of Hawaii are called Polynesians and they have a rich and dynamic history in the region, before, during, and after colonisation. The islands’ beauty and history draw tourists year round. Use this day to learn all that you can about the cultural importance of Hawaii to the American sovereignty.
In 2017, National Day Calendar® began celebrating each state in the order they entered the union starting the week of Independence Day and ending with Hawaii. They highlight a small part of each states’ history, foods, and the people who make up the state.
