Hawaii was named the fiftieth state of the United States August 21, 1959. Hawaii was considered "paradise". The state decided it would be a good idea to promote tourism. They believed it would help their economy. Instead it turned "paradise" into a very crowded state. Hawaii was named the Aloha State, because the word aloha stands for a greeting of hello, goodbye and also a wish for safe travel.

Hotels began to pop-up everywhere. Builders were in such competition one man created and furnished one-hundred room hotel in eighty-nine days. Souvenir shops, dance clubs, high traffic, market places, gaudy resorts and gourmet restaurants were created. Hawaii was really taken over by money hungry investors. After the boom the only remaining open land was 234 acres of Fort DeRussy. Natives felt pushed aside by developers who were creating tourist traps and development for wealthy mainland retirees. The natives were being taken advantage of because outsiders just "grabbed the best of everything". The Hawaiian Islands had for better or worse become part of the modern world. Greeting tourists with the phrase aloha became old. The natives no longer enjoyed hulas or luaus. They felt it was offensive to the ritual significance of such customs. Over time the islands have become overpopulated and living expenses have become very high. The natives have lost their sense of belonging. They have tried many times to bring cultural history back into society and have failed. Hawaii no longer has any identity of its own. I believe the newfound identity is a tourist trap. Maybe one-day Hawaii will find what it has lost, cultural identity.

However, after catching up on the series this past
