Political developments in Hawaii during the 1890s resulted in the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy under Liliuokalani and the installation of an American-dominated government under Sanford Dole. Though together they comprised a majority of the people in Hawaii, neither Chinese nor Japanese residents were permitted to participate in that government. Leaders of the so-called Republic of Hawaii engineered their successful annexation by the United States, but initially failed to achieve the full territorial status they desired.
