Chapter 4 examines global geography as it was taught in the schools and presented in Hawaiian-language textbooks. These textbooks were riven with contradictions. As translations from American volumes, they echoed their source texts’ racism and colonialism. Yet because Native Hawaiians’ skills were needed to prepare the translations, they also reflected indigenous perspectives that rendered Hawai‘i as central rather than peripheral.

Keywords:   global geography, textbooks, pedagogy, racism and colonialism, politics of translation, Eurocentrism
