Capt Geo VancouverSeptember 14, 2015, 7:00-8:30 p.m.  George Vancouver and his Four Voyages to Hawai`iFirst as a midshipman on Captain James Cook’s final expedition (1776—1780), and later as explorer, navigator, cartographer, ambassador, and commander of the British fleet in the Pacific (1791—1795), Englishman George Vancouver made four important voyages to the Sandwich Islands.

He also brought the first cattle and signed a singular treaty with Tamehameha I that ceded Hawai`i Island to Great Britain.  Or did it?  There are different interpretations of this document and the events surrounding it.

Tonight Hawai`i Island historian Boyd D. Bond recounts what happened here in 1795 that would affect the Hawaiian Kingdom for decades to follow.
