Hawaii and its people embraced cultures from all over the world. When the sugar mills opened thousands of Japanese where brought in to work on the sugar plantations. Even when we came back in 1983, I remember seeing the plantation workers cleaning the sugar cane that had fallen off the flat bed trucks from the roads all up and down Hamakua. With the Japanese came their culture and it is so mixed together with all the other cultures here as to create a unique culture of its own. Things like “Spam Musubi”, could only come from Hawaii. Here though, one of our local children remembers the roots of her families heritage in a performance at Lilliokalani Park in Hilo. She had to dress as one of the young male dancers as they didn’t have any boys willing to dance!
