People

Hawaiians are one of the interesting races that you will ever meet. With their rich history of civilization, Hawaiians are surely the people that you want to know. Anthropology experts believe that the earliest settlement in Hawaii was by Polynesians who migrated from the Marquesas Islands probably as early as 400 AD, to be followed by a second wave of immigration that sailed from Tahiti in the 9th century. Once they had fixed themselves in Hawaii, the Hawaiians had no further need to obtain supplies from their old homeland and have gone through centuries of isolation. Although there are still close resemblances in general customs, lifestyles, physical characteristics, and linguistics between the Hawaiians and their Polynesian ancestors, a degree of racial autonomy evolved. When Hawaii became one of the states of America, the people of Hawaii even evolved more into becoming advanced and updated relative to lifestyle. That is why more and more people now from many different countries are traveling to beautiful Hawaii.

Geography

So do you want to know what makes Hawaii an island? Good, because you are in the right place. As every island has its own story, only one is a living instance of a Hawaiian Island in the making - the Big Island. Yes, “Big Island," as they call it, is a perfect subject to examine and use as a good example. Let’s take a look at the geology of the only island that you can still view physically growing day by day. The Hawaiian Islands are located near the middle of the Pacific Plate on top of a hot spot. This Pacific Plate is almost always moving northwestward at a rate of many centimeters per year. This constant movement of the Pacific Plate over a local volcanic hot spot has produced a series of several islands. The outcome is a chain of volcanic islands that consist of eight main islands and 124 islets stretching from the Big Island along a northwest line for 1,500 miles toward the Aleutian Islands of Alaska and Japan. In totality, the islands spread across an area of 6,459 square miles. Fascinating, isn't it? This makes Hawaii most interesting to visit. That is why more and more people want to travel to this beautiful island of Hawaii.
