The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to the U.S. state of Hawaii:
Hawaii is the newest state among the 50 states of the United States of America. It is also the southernmost state, the only tropical state, and the only state that was previously an independent monarchy. The state comprises the Hawaiian Islands (with the exception of Midway) in the North Pacific Ocean and is the only U.S. state that is not primarily located on the continent of North America.
Geography of Hawaii – Unlike the other states of the Union, Hawaii is a group of islands, located in the Pacific Ocean.
Demographics of Hawaii – Hawaii has a de facto population of over 1.4 million, due to large military and tourist populations.
Culture of Hawaii – the aboriginal culture of Hawaii is Polynesian. Hawaii represents the northernmost extension of the vast Polynesian triangle of the south and central Pacific Ocean. While traditional Hawaiian culture remains only as vestiges in modern Hawaiian society, there are reenactments of the ceremonies and traditions throughout the islands.
