Events Leading to the Overthrow :fire:
Definition of Reciprocity: the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit, especially privileges granted by one country or organization to another.
Between United States and Hawaii
It made goods such as sugar and rice tax-free
After renewal, U.S wanted Pearl Harbor
Reaction: :red_flag::open_mouth: I think the King was stupid to let the U.S take Pearl Harbor because it was Hawaii only defense and we were defenseless at the time.
A constitution signed under threat of violence
1)King cannot elect officials, 2)The King cannot fire officials, 3)Non-Hawaiian citizens can vote
Reflection/Essential Question:The Reciprocity Treaty helped the U.S because when the King signed the contract the Hawaiians were defenseless. They were defenseless because the U.S took control of the most defensive place on the island. Also the Bayonet Constitution was a way that U.S took control of the island Hawaii. The Bayonet Constitution benifited the U.S because the foreigners gained control of Hawaii because they made the King sign a contract that made the King unable to have power. Finally that Constitution was also the fall of Hawaii because now the foreigners had chance to take control of the Hawaiian island because the foreigners could vote and they could elect a Non-Hawaiian to take the island of Hawaii over.
