The Search for Signs of Hawaiian Life in the Universe
John and Donna deHaan, former Honolulu residents, swapped their life on Tantalus for the even more rural experience on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada. Kanaka Wharf is in Ganges Harbor on Salt Spring. Between 1820 and 1850, Hudson's Bay Co. had a dozen trading posts in the Northwest. About 500 native Hawaiians worked for the trading company, and many stayed to raise families in the Northwest. On Salt Spring Island, Hawaiians are still recognized as among the earliest settlers.
