By the time the twentieth century rolled around, few places on earth had changed so completely as the Hawaiian Islands. In the midst of educating her pupils for the radical pace of modernization that was rushing Honolulu forward, Pope had a startling revelation. As time-honored Hawaiian traditions were subjugated under the transformations, she realized her pupils had been deprived of their culture and that she had, unwittingly, been a participant in this. Almost as an apology, Pope went into the new century at full steam, making sure Hawaiian girls knew they had a distinct cultural identity, one that must be acknowledged, respected, and enabled to flourish in the midst of the Americanization of the islands. At Kamehameha, Pope was an activist, complaining to the trustees that not enough was being done, but abroad, she acted as an ambassador for the school and the success of its programs. The more Pope wrote, traveled throughout America, and visited educational intuitions, the more people heard about the Kamehameha School for Girls. She was proud that influential people began to look to her school as a prototype. Pope was invited to join an organized tour group of American educators in the spring of 1906 on a grand European tour.
