Chapter Summary

This chapter explores ways that migrations to and from Hawaiʻi shaped and were shaped by the Atlantic and Pacific contexts and questions of who was to keep sovereignty, who was to rule, and who was to be ruled in Hawaiʻi. It focuses on the history of migration and politics of sovereignty, settlement, and belonging in between the 1780s, when Hawaiʻi became a key crossroads to and through which peoples from around the Atlantic and Pacific circulated, and the 1930s, when most migration to and from Hawaiʻi came to a virtual standstill. The chapter presents preliminary findings on how ideas about the potential of Portuguese and Japanese immigrants to become settlers and citizens of Hawaiʻiand Brazil circulated in the Atlantic and Pacific between the 1870s and 1910s.

Keywords:Atlantic; Hawaiʻi; Japanese immigrants; migration; Pacific; Portuguese immigrants; settlement; sovereignty
