Abstract

themselves from colonial rule, have taken over colonial structures in which they have tended to reproduce the basic structures of colonial power. But this has not been the case in Hawai`i. American rule in Hawai`i was unlike the common colonial trajectory insofar as it succeeded in the wholesale elimination of the local elite as a governing group, leaving only some wealthy families intermarried with whites, and at the same time the marginalization of the majority of the Hawaiian population. This can be seen in the gradual disempowerment of the Hawaiians from the turn of the last century until the 1930s. In the first years of the twentieth century, Hawaiians had a home-rule party, and via alliances with the dominant Republicans they maintained an important place in the government, with over half of all elected officials as late as 1927. But rules of property radically reduced the voting power of the majority of the poor, so that while at the turn of that century they represented almost 70 percent of the vote, this declined to just over half in 1920 and to 38 percent in 1930. The military buildup and increasing intolerance toward Hawaiians as well as a need
