Historical tidbit:

In 1843, the Kingdom of Hawai’i became the first non-European nation to be recognized amongst the “Family of Nations” as a nation state.  November 28th was once the official holiday called Ka Lā Ku’oko’a, or Independence Day.

On November 28, 1843, at the Court of London, the British and French Governments entered into a formal agreement of the recognition of Hawaiian independence, with what is called the Anglo-Franco proclamation – See more at: http://www.unpo.org/article/1548#sthash.GvFNX302.dpuf
