Hawaii is a set of collective volcanic islands located in the central Pacific Ocean, with the nickname Aloha state. Its capital is known as Honolulu on the Oahu island. Hawaii became one of the united states of America constituent states on August 21, 1959, making it the 50th state. The state motto is in the native Polynesian language, “Ua Mau Ke Ea Oka Aina I ka Pono,” which translates to the life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.
The first Hawaiian residents were the Polynesians from the Marquesas islands since 400C.E. the Polynesians practiced fishing due to the rich seabeds and farming because of the enriched volcanic soils and high rainfall. Moreover, they had spectacular political organizations, as chieftains ruled their small communities.
During the 1850s, mail handling was a private encounter. Letters sent from other countries were put in multiple mercantile houses in Honolulu. Hawaiians would then spread the letters on counting tables and look for their letters. Post offices were inexistent. Therefore, only Honolulu benefitted from the mercantile houses.
The demand for official post offices rose when the need arose for secure, confident, and safe means of sending and receiving letters. Semimonthly steamers were used in sending messages and took it for approximately three months.
On December 21, 1850, a royal decree went out, and the Honolulu post office establishment took place. The letters’ transportation begun at the Honolulu post office and proceeded to the San Francisco post office. Afterward, the message would be sent to the recipient.
Afterward, the construction of lots of post offices took place, the Kamehameha post office named after King Kamehameha, the federal building in Hilo, king David Kalakaua building, and the US post-office-Lihue.
Today, multiple post offices stand in Hawaii. The automated post offices allow the Hawaiians to purchase stamps. Moreover, they allow residents to weigh and mail packages and letters.
