Hawai'i's Russian Adventure: A New Look at Old Historyby Peter R. Mills
Synopses & Reviews
Seeking to redress the imbalance that exists between the colonized and the colonizers in Pacific historiography, Mills examines Fort Elisabeth and its place in the history of Kaua'i under paramount chief Kaumuali'i and in relation to the expanding kingdom of Kamehameha and his successors.
Book News Annotation:
Russian Fort Elisabeth State Historical Park in Waimea, Kauai has been neglected as a site representing Russian influence in Hawaii's 19th century colonial history and Hawaiians' role in its construction and culturally appropriated later use. From a Hawaiian perspective based on archeological fieldwork, Mills (anthropology, U. of Hawaii, Hilo) critically evaluates historical narratives about the fort and islanders' interactions with "the world system". Include b&w views of the site and its artifacts.
