Changing the Narrative: Hawaiian History from Hawaiian Perspective

Professor David Chang challenges persistent narratives about Hawaii’s past. “For too long, history has been written as if Hawaiians were passive observers of their own history, isolated from and uninterested in the outside world,” he says. In his new book, Chang aims to update our perspective on Hawaii’s past by presenting it through the eyes of the people who lived through it.
