    Native History: Cook Explores Hawaiian Islands, Brings TB

    This Date in Native History: On January 18, 1778, Captain James Cook became the first European to explore the Hawaiian Islands when he sailed past the island of Oahu with his two ships, the Resolution and the Discovery.
    He landed on the island of Kauai two days later, where he was welcomed as a sacred chief or god, said Jonathan Kay Kamakawiwoʹole Osorio, professor of Hawaiian Studies at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.
