Captain Cook town is named after the British navigator, Captain Cook. Cook is one of the bravest explorers. He was the first person to arrive at a county in Hawaii. He was at the HMS Resolution ship when he arrives at the Kealakekua Bay. He was very surprised that the native people of Hawaii welcome him. At the time of his arrival, the native people were celebrating a festival for the god Lono. It is believed that the local people welcome him because he has an impressive ship. Cook returned to the Hawaii Island again after a year. It was unfortunate for him to return at this time because it is the time of the war. During this time, the local people are wary of foreigners that come from other countries.
Cook found out that the natives stole some of the boats that belonged to him. To fight back, Cook captured the chieftain and used him as hostage to demand the people to return the property. It caused the people to be angry. In revenge of what Cook did to them, they stabbed him repeatedly. The crew was horrified after seeing Cook’s body was dragged to the village. Later, one of the crewmembers appealed to the natives and get back Cook’s body. The crew buried his body at the city. To remember Cook, the crew erected a statue. The Cook monument can still be seen at the island. The monument is built the site where Captain Cook died. If you want to visit the monument, you need to follow the foot trail. If you don’t want to take the foot trail, you can rent a boat and row it across the Kealakekua Bay.
