The government of the city and county have just been consolidated into the City and County of Honolulu. The consolidated government includes the entire island. At the time of the 2000 Census, the population of the urban portion of the city of Honolulu, which is considered to be the census-designated place by the U.S. Census Bureau for statistical purposes, was 377,357. The city of Honolulu is a major financial center of the islands of the Pacific Ocean. In the 2010 Census, the population of the city and the county was roughly 953,200. Relative to state population, Honolulu is the most heavily populated state capital.
There are accounts of oral histories and artifacts which show evidence of the very first settlement of Honolulu to be by the original Polynesian migrants to the archipelago. These records show that as early as the 11th century, there was a settlement where Honolulu is now situated. In 1804, in the Battle of Nu'uanu at Nu'uanu Pali, after Kamehameha I conquered Oahu; he moved his royal court from the Island of Hawaii to Waiki-ki. In 1809, his court relocated to what is currently considered to be downtown Honolulu. In the year 1812, the capital was moved back to Kailua-Kona.
The city of Honolulu is the cultural center of Hawaii State and is where many many museums and landmarks have been erected to celebrate the island's rich history. Located downtown are the King Kamehameha statue and the Lolani palace, that honor the Hawaiian Kingdom's royalty. The Polynesian Cultural Center near Brigham Young University, located outside of the city offers an outdoor representation of villages from New Zealand, the state of Hawaii, Tahiti and Fiji along with other cultures of the Pacific. There are native dancers, Hula dancing and interactive demonstrations performed. Two festivals are held on a yearly basis during June and July.
Another famous location to visit while within Honolulu City is the Bishop Museum, located just north of downtown. It offers an insight into the rich history with live performances, costumes, documents and canoes.
The economy of the city of Honolulu is powered by the defense contracting industry, the military and tourism, as well as research and development and manufacturing. Typically, tourism introduces approximately 10 billion dollars each and every year to Honolulu. Other important economic factors are provided by aqua-culture and agriculture. The Marine Base Kaneohe, the Schofield Barracks and the Pearl Harbor naval Shipyard are other contributing factors to the economy.
In Honolulu's emerging economy, numerous sectors provide employment to the city including the industries of information and communication technologies, alternative energy, defense-dual use technologies, astronomy and space sciences, science-biotech, and marine sciences. The Kapolei area also houses one of the largest industrial parks in Hawaii. There are a variety of huge shipping businesses that serve the port, and the Honolulu Harbor has a prominent Foreign Trade Zone.
