Hawaii, USA

Archapeligo of eight main basaltic islands (Hawai'i, Kahoolawe, Kauai, Lana'i, Maui, Molukai, Niihau, Oahu)and hundreds of tiny islands created by the passage of the Pacific plate over a mantle hot spot. Eruptions of magma are ongoing mostly on the Island of Hawai'i, also known as the "Big Island".

Visitors to Hawai'i are now seeing many "official" road and informational signs using a diacritical mark called an "okina" inserted between the double "ii" in the state's name.

"A somewhat divisive political issue that has arisen since the Constitution of Hawaiʻi adopted Hawaiian as an official state language is the exact spelling of the state's name. As prescribed in the Admission Act of 1959 that granted Hawaiian statehood, the federal government recognizes Hawaii to be the official state name. However, many state and municipal entities and officials have recognized Hawai'i to be the correct state name.

Official government publications, as well as department and office titles, use the traditional Hawaiian spelling. Private entities, including local mass media, also have shown a preference for the use of the ʻokina. While in local Hawaiian society the spelling and pronunciation of Hawaiʻi is preferred in nearly all cases, even by standard English speakers, the federal spelling is used for purposes of interpolitical relations between other states and foreign governments."
