This program will be conducted in English.
Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States and the most recent state to enter the union of states which comprise America. Known for its lush mountains and gorgeous beaches, Hawaii hosts over 8 million tourists each year. Visitors to Hawaii can taste the local foods of the Pacific islands and see plants and animals not found anywhere else in the world. Hawaii also boasts the highest percentage of multiracial residents in America, and is the only state without an ethnic majority. People from all over the world come to live in Hawaii, with famous examples including President Barack Obama and Sun Yat-sen (孙中山).
On June 14th, please come to the Beijing American Center, where a native of Hawaii will teach you about the rich history of Hawaii and the people who journeyed there. Learn the story of how the first plants and animals found their way to one of the most isolated landmasses on Earth. In Hawaii, when you want to greet someone, you say “Aloha.” But this word can also mean “warmth and affection,” such as “With Aloha, the Beijing American Center welcomes you!”
