From page 40 of the article:
The [Whitehall Review] reporter concluded from his interview with the king that Hawaiʻi under Kalākaua was an extremely highly developed country. Indeed, the writer observed, “I parted from his Majesty with regret, envying his subjects” and “hoping that the king would move to England.” Continue reading “Hawaiian Journal of History Vol. 52 (2018)”→
This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Hawaiian Historical Society, and in recognition of this anniversary, the society has printed its logo on the cover of its annual volume of The Hawaiian Journal of History. The logo was redesigned in 1977 and, according to an introduction by Shari Y. Tamashiro:
The two islands represent the Hawaiian Islands, the double-hulled sailing canoe represents the culture of the Native Hawaiians who found and settled the islands, and the three-masted sailing ship represents the cultures of the non-Hawaiians who followed.
The society publishes books in both English and Hawaiian, and HJH is a leading peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the history of Native Hawaiians and all other cultures in Hawai‘i during both pre- and post-contact times.
In the Notes & Queries section in volume 50 of the Hawaiian Journal of History author Stuart W.H. Ching writes about a collection of glass plate negatives housed within St. Patrick Monastery in Honolulu.
…This archives contains the collective memory of a religious congregation of priests and lay brothers. Its members were the first Roman Catholic missionaries to the Hawaiian Islands, arriving in 1827. Historical records and visual images found in the Sacred Hearts provincial archives document the Congregation’s personnel and activities as well and that of the communities in which they served. Kalaupapa was one such community for which the Sacred Hearts Congregation left a written and visual record.
The Hawaiian Historical Society will present an illustrated presentation as part of the launch of their new issue, The Hawaiian Journal of History Volume 49.
Ronald Williams Jr. PhD will discuss his article, “Race, Power, and the Dilemma of Democracy: Hawai‘i’s First Territorial Legislature, 1901,” this Thursday, March 10 at 7 p.m. at Kapiʻolani Community College, Hale ʻŌhiʻa. The event is free and open to the public.
The struggle over political power in Hawaiʻi did not end with the American takeover in 1898. In the territorial election of 1900, Kanaka Maoli men and women, in a matter of less than six months, organized a new political party, campaigned against an oligarchic government supported by wealthy business interests, and achieved a convincing victory at the polls. What was the outcome of that legislature and why was this active display of Native leadership ignored by historians for over a century?
Past histories of the Japanese experience in the Islands have emphasized “the reticent and subservient picture bride and the hard-working, silent plantation field laborer,” writes Kelli Y. Nakamura in her article “Issei Women and Work: Washerwomen, Prostitutes, Midwives, and Barbers.” While authentic enough, these characterizations are simplistic and fail to portray the wide range of activities performed by Issei women, according to Nakamura.
Economic conditions enabled many Issei women use their skills as domestic workers to extend their influence outside the family sphere and create economic opportunities beyond the agricultural fields. Many found opportunities in traditional “women’s work,” such as laundering, cooking, and sewing. Others were active as midwives and barbers, two professions that were dominated by Japanese women, and some even out-earned men by working as prostitutes. According to Nakamura, these women rendered key services in the development of Hawai‘i’s economy, though their contributions have been overshadowed by the stereotype of the passive picture bride and industrious but silent field laborer.
Nakamura’s article is in good company with the articles and book reviews that make up this volume of the Hawaiian Journal of History. Other featured articles include:
