Hawaii is a fictional account of the first efforts by missionaries to convert Hawaiians to Christianity. It covers the period from 1820 to about 1840 and is based on the novel by James Michener.
The plot of Hawaii was derived from historical events. The movie will acquaint children with the Christian missionary movement and the effects on the Hawaiians of exposure to Western civilization, an event which led to the death of most Hawaiians and the virtual extinction of their culture.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Hawaii.
Brother/sister incest is taboo in almost every society. Incestuous marriages lead to increased mental retardation and birth defects. The mechanism is the promotion of recessive genetic characteristics. Brother/sister incest was also permitted in the royal family in ancient Egypt.
The Learning Guide to the film Hawaii contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
