Like many other colonial territories, in 1946 Hawai’i was inscribed onto the United Nations List of Non-Self-Governing Territories. As such, Hawai’i was eligible for decolonization under international law. However, the United States—in clear violation of UN policies and international law of the time and existing through the present—predetermined statehood as the status for Hawai’i. The 1959 ballot in which the people of Hawai’i voted to become a state of the union included only two options: incorporation and remaining a US colonial territory. In addition—among those who were allowed to take part in the vote that eventually marked Hawai’i’s supposed transition from colonial status—Hawaiians were outnumbered by settlers as well as military personnel.
