Amos and Juliette Cooke had the best intentions. In 1839 Honolulu, the couple was deeply honored to be chosen to personally oversee the education of the children of the kings and queens of Hawai‘i.

But how does one enforce rigorous discipline on a sacred ali‘i child? When is education a form of imperialism?

Inspired by historical events, "Wild Birds," a historical drama by Eric Anderson, tells the story of intense cultural clashes, the effects of western education on the indigenous monarchy, and the ultimate disillusionment of a teacher.
