    Cook Islands Introduction - 2004
    http://www.immigration-usa.com/wfb2004/cook_islands/cook_islands_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2004 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      Named after Captain Cook, who sighted them in 1770, the islands became a British protectorate in 1888. By 1900, administrative control was transferred to New Zealand; in 1965 residents chose self-government in free association with New Zealand. The emigration of skilled workers to New Zealand and government deficits are continuing problems.
