In 1893 the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom was overthrown. However, that does not mean that it simply disappeared. In fact, in 2001, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Netherlands verified the continued existence of the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom. But why is this? Didn't the United States annex Hawaii? Isn't Hawaii a state? How can it be that the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists even though the country doesn't? On this final installment of Insurrection--a three part mini-series by Transmissions from Hawaii--Dr. Keanu Sai answers all these questions and more.
