The chapter traces writing about American Indian people in Hawaiian-language newspapers from the 1830s to the end of the century. It argues that over the course of the nineteenth-century, Kānaka came to see a likeness between themselves and American Indian people, and that act of recognizing likeness was part of the process of thinking about the global category of the indigenous--a conversation that is very current today.

Keywords:   American Indians, Hawaiian-language newspapers, recognition and solidarity, global category of the indigenous, print journalistic media
