Kauai History

Kauai History

Kauai was the first Hawaiian island to break the surface of the Pacific ocean, over 5.1 million years ago, and last island to join the Hawaiian Kingdom. After a series of planned invasions by King Kamehameha which went awry due to weather and epidemics, Kauai was peacefully submitted to Kamehameha in 1810.

It was also the first island in the Hawaiian chain to be visited by Capt. James Cook, in 1778 when he landed on the shores of Waimea, Kauai's former capital. The seat of Kauai County is now Lihue, the most populated city on the island.

The people of Kauai were once known for their distinct version of the Hawaiian language (before the language went extinct). Their dialect was known for pronouncing the letter "K" as "T", making the name of the island "Tauai". The island of Nihau is one of the only places on Earth that the original Hawaiian language is still spoken, and until recently the small island off the coast of Kauai was only allowed to be visited by native Hawaiians.

The beauty of Kauai has made it a favorite for movie directors looking for a tropical setting, the most notable example of which is the 1993 film Jurassic Park. The fact that it is also one of the most westerly points in the United States makes it the ideal site for the U.S. Navy's Pacific Missile Range Facility.
