I usually have a very hard time with sourcing and using the documents. i made this following one of the formulas someone posted here. Do you think this would work?
Document 4 is a letter from the queen of Hawaii to the United States trying to negotiate freedom from the US’s expansion. The purpose of this letter is to peacefully gain back the land from the US without having to start a war or rebellion, although it eventually does not work and Hawaii never regains independence. This shows that some indegenous people responded to state expansion by peacefully negotiating, although it did not always work.
