This chapter traces the evolution of Hawaiʻi's natural resource policies, which can be divided into two periods. The first covers the era of the independent Hawaiian nation from the 1840s until its overthrow in 1893. The second period coincides with the American capture of state power during the Republic and Territorial eras. With the passing of Hawaiian natural resources into individualized and commoditized entities, their purpose narrowed. Over the course of these two periods, the role of Hawaiʻi's resource policies evolved from one of serving agricultural development and nationhood into one of protecting the profitability of sugar plantations and the spin-off pineapple industry. Several important themes can be traced from one period into the next.

Keywords:   natural resource policy, Hawaiian natural resources, agricultural development, sugar plantations, pineapple industry
