486 the contemporary pacific • fall 2003 respects representative of many Third Russians did construct a fort near the World nations struggling to integrate mouth of the Waimea River on the themselves in an ever more global west side of Kaua‘i in 1816. Equally economy, trying to optimize the use of undeniably, Native Hawaiians partici- their intellectual, cultural, and biolog- pated in its construction during the ical resources without sacrificing con- period when paramount chief Kaumu- trol.

Peter informative, but as I said earlier much Mills believes the lack of Native of this falls into place against the gen- Hawaiian perspectives in these histor- eral overview provided by the appen- ical narratives must
