Amos and Juliette Cooke had the best intentions. In 1839 Honolulu, the couple was deeply honored to be chosen to personally oversee the education of the children of the kings and queens of Hawai‘i. But how does one enforce rigorous discipline on a sacred ali‘i child and when is education a form of imperialism?
