AbstractHawaiʻi has been subject to globalization of one form or another since the first Polynesians arrived in their small ships with enough supplies to colonize what we now name the Hawaiʻian Islands. In this article I will first give a brief history and define, in basic terms, the forces of globalization as they affect the Islands. Following that is a fundamental presentation of class, race and economics of the Islands, and then a brief survey of the agriculture and food sources local to the Islands with an emphasis on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. Lastly, there is a description of the forces that tend to be counter hegemons of globalization in the Hawaiʻian Islands.
