The chapter looks at the Kanaka encounter with Christianity from the 1810s forward, and seeks to correct standard narratives of missionary endeavor. It centers Native Hawaiians’ active use of Christianity and the to seek knowledge from the outside for Native Hawaiian purposes. It further contends that for Kānaka, exploring the outside world through Christianity meant reconnecting to other Pacific Islanders, not acquiescing to Western colonialism.
