A new multi-part series from Undivided Nation titled, “Strangling Hands Upon a Nation’s Throat,” takes a look into how Hawaii became America’s 50th state. The title for our series comes from an 1897 newspaper article that told the vivid, firsthand account of the Hawaiian people’s opposition to annexation by the United States of America. The story of the 1893 coup d’état of the government of the Kingdom of Hawaii and Queen Liliʻuokalani by a group of local businessmen backed by the U.S. Foreign Minister and a force of 120 US Marines will leave you on the edge of your seat. Join us on this series as we uncover a largely hidden past in search of truth and justice. This series will help many non-Hawaiians understand the situation in Hawaii today, especially as it relates to the opposition to the protests against the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea.
Here is the original article that inspired this series:
