Location of Hawaii

Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state to have joined the United States.

Hawaii was an independent kingdom until 1893, when it became the Republic of Hawaii. The United States annexed the country in 1898, but granted self-governance to the Territory of Hawaii in 1900. Hawaii received statehood on 21 August 1959.

Works from Hawaii are subject to United States federal government copyright laws.
