Polynesian settlers were the earliest known inhabitants of the modern-day state of Hawaii since at least around 300 A.D. These settlers most likely had migrated from the Marquesas Islands, and they were followed by another wave of immigration in the 11th century from Bora Bora and Raiatea. The Spanish were debatably the earliest European explorers to see or land on these islands in the 16th century, but there is insufficient evidence to support it conclusively. However, the first documented explorer to land here was the famous British Captain James Cook in the year 1778. Unfortunately, on his second trip there, Cook had an incident with the natives that resulted in a battle where Captain Cook and several of his men were killed in 1779.
This island was organized into a kingdom under the rule of a king and the dynasty known as the Kamehameha starting in 1795. In the early 19th century, missionaries were very influential here in business and administration affairs which saw them have one of their own appointed as the 3rd king of the Kingdom of Hawaii. This kingdom was peaceful until King Kamehameha V and his successor both passed away with naming heirs to their throne. It ultimately resulted in an unpopular election that led to massive riots and chaos. The House of Kalakaua took over the leadership of this Kingdom and the British and the United States both sent troops to restore peace there. This new Kingdom was however overthrown in 1893, and five years later, the USA wound up seizing control of the island chain and officially made it a US Territory in 1898 which lasted peacefully for sixty years.
With an estimated population of about 630,000 people, Hawaii was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959, making it the 50th and final US state. It covers an area of about 10,931 square miles which makes it the 43rd largest state in land area. With its estimated 1.5 million people calling it home, it now ranks as the 40th most populous US state. Several nicknames such as the Islands of Aloha, the Paradise of the Pacific, and the Aloha State have been given to this state which goes by the motto; ‘The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness.‘
The state is located in the Oceania region; on the Pacific Islands and not part of the Americas. The state is made up of eight main islands, each of which has its unique culture and residential community; Hawai’i: the Big Island, Maui: the Valley Isle, O’ahu: the Gathering Place, Moloka’i: the Friendly Isle, Kaua’i: the Garden Isle, Lana’i: the Pineapple Isle, Ni’ihau: the Forbidden Isle, and Kaho’olawe: the Target Isle. These islands were formed as a result of volcanic activity from a source of magma known as the Hawaii Hotspot. This state’s isolation from other land masses is what is responsible for its uniquely evolving animal and plant species like the Brighamia.
This state is endowed with various preserves, monuments, and parks that are of national importance. The Honokōhau Settlement & Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park in the Kailua-Kona area on the Big Island is a famous recreational area with activities such canoeing, boating and scuba diving at the Honokohau Harbor. The Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park served as a place of refuge for soldiers during wars and also society members who broke certain community laws. The Papah'naumoku'kea Marine National Monument is an important cultural and heritage site for the natives who believe that this area breeds life. The Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail is a recreational path that follows the coastline of this state connecting several islands. The Kalaupapa Leprosy Settlement and National Historical Park on the island of Molokaʻi serves to preserve and commemorate the leper colonies that acted as a home for those affected by the leprosy disease in the early 19th century.

The Jagger Museum at the Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park is dedicated to the study of volcanoes which contributed to the formation of the current chain of islands that make up this state. The islands are also loaded with many farms and agricultural places such as the Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery in Kula.
The city of Honolulu serves as the capital and has been nicknamed the Sheltered Bay, the Big Pineapple, and the Crossroads of the Pacific. This city houses the biggest airport in this state; the Hnl International Airport. Various cultural and sporting events such as the Honolulu Marathon and the Great Aloha Marathon which helps to raise funds for charitable organizations here. To cap off the ultimate test of endurance, the city hosts the annual World Championship Hawaiian IRON MAN Triathlon in Waikiki.

The islanders here have access to various modern schools to quench their thirst for modern education. The UH is the only public university in this state and has campuses in the cities of Hilo, Honolulu, Kapolei and Kahului. The major private universities are the HPU in Honolulu, and BYUH in Laie.
The state has sporting action all year through although it does not have teams that play in major leagues. For collegiate sports, residents here will usually route for the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors. The Hawaii Bowl at the Aloha Stadium is a famous post-season event that features two of the best NCAA Division I teams. For basketball fans, the Maui Invitational is a quite famous college basketball tournament. Before moving to Orlando, the NFL Pro Bowl played every year from 1980 until 2016 and featured some of the greatest players in the NFL as they competed in the final game of the football season. For golf fans, they can take in a couple of PGA tournaments like the Sony Open in Oahu and the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Kapalua on the island of Maui.
The economy here is diversified with tourism being the major contributor. Other dominant economic sectors include education, whaling, agriculture, banking, military, food processing, and technology. Some of the major employers here are the Hawaii Pacific Health, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Queen’s Health Systems, Hilton Hotel & Resorts, Hawaiian Airlines, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan & Hospitals, Securitas Security Services USA, Bank of Hawaii, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hicham, and Kamehameha Schools.
When buying or selling a house in here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. The methodology when surveying real estate here primarily follows the old Kingdom's native surveying system that was in place at time of its annexation into the USA.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a title theory state. This simply means that the raw title of the property will remain in a trust until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender can typically avoid having to go through the court system. They do this by merely starting a non-judicial foreclosure which typically only takes about 220 days to complete. However, when necessary, the lender may need to instead go to court and start a more lengthy and costly judicial foreclosure. The laws that pertain to the HI foreclosure process are mostly found in H.R.S. Chapter 667 et. Seq..
However, if you are a landlord here that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the statutes of Chapter 521 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the HI Real Estate Branch, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the HI Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete the HI prelicensing education course, successfully pass the written state real estate exam, pass certain criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fees.
This state has been a major tourist destination especially for those who love water sporting activities.
