夏威夷州 Hawaii

說到夏威夷,你想到什麼?一望無際的白色沙灘、湛藍色的海面以及熾熱的南國暖陽?這些都沒有錯,因為這就是熱情的阿羅哈之州—夏威夷州。

美國的第五十州夏威夷,是由137個島嶼串連而成。然而當我們提到夏威夷,我們通常只會提及其中八個島嶼:這是由於其餘的129個島其陸地面積太小,並不適宜人居。

夏威夷州同時也是全世界火山活動最頻繁的區域;而也就是因其得天獨厚的火山地形、沙灘美景與蓊鬱的山谷景致,每年有許多的遊客特地到此造訪這美麗的熱帶樂園。

夏威夷並不與美洲大陸相連,而是位於北太平洋的大洋洲之中。夏威夷的人口組成獨特,全州並非以白種人居多,其亞裔人口的比列為全美之冠,另外也有許多坡利尼西雅人的後裔在此居住。縱使許多新移民搬入夏威夷,但是夏威夷原住民依然保有許多原有的文化及傳統習俗,這也是美國唯一將其本地的原住民語列為官方語言的一州。

在夏威夷的歷史上,獨立為州的議題一直被反覆提出、討論,然而直到1959年夏威夷才正式成為美國的第五十個州。

What is the first thing that comes into your mind when people mention “Hawaii”? Is it the endless beaches, or the deep blue see or the fierce tropical sunshine? None of them are wrong, because they are all symbolic of the Aloha state. Hawaii is comprised of a chain of 137 islands. We usually think of the eight main islands when we are talking about Hawaii: this is because the other 129 islands are too small even for living.

Hawaii has the world's most active volcano, the crater of Kilauea on Mauna Loa. Sandy beaches, towering volcanoes, and lush valleys attract thousands of tourists each year to visit this tropical paradise.

Hawaii does not connect with the American continent. It is located in the northern Pacific Ocean and is the most ethnically and racially diverse state of any state in the union. It is also one of only two states where Caucasians are not the biggest section population. Hawaii contains the highest rate of ethnic Asians and there are also Polynesians among others. Native Hawaiians preserve many of their customs and traditions even though more and more new residents move into the islands. Hawaii is the also only state that has an official native language.

In Hawaii’s past history, statehood had been proposed many times, however it was not until 1959 that Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States.
