These blackbirded people were called Kanakas or South Sea.   (The U.S. Ex. Ex. didn't launch until ! American whalers had been in the Pacific for decades, and ABCFM missionaries had been in Hawai'i for almost 20 years.) One main difference was the style of colonization. Most American interactions with Pacific islands weren't colonialist in such a straightforward way (with a couple obvious exceptions.)Author: Charlie Mccrary.
