This presentation explores the meanings that Native Hawaiians invested in their encounters with American Indians in the 19th century American West.  Using Hawaiian language newspapers and face-to-face encounters, this presentation demonstrates how relations between Native Hawaiians and American Indians, surprising in their depth and range, provide a window onto how indigenous people understood their place in a broader world dominated by colonial and imperial powers.
