During World War II, authorities arrested and incarcerated Japanese on the island of Hawai‘i due to racist fears. Many scholars skim over the details of the incarceration of residents of Hawai‘i island and other islands as part of the larger narrative of O‘ahu incarceration, where authorities held Japanese at sites like Sand Island and Honouliuli. However, these lives and experiences are meaningful to understanding the incarceration experience in Hawai‘i and expanding the focus beyond O‘ahu to encompass the neighbor islands and rural areas—two areas still in need of study in order to understand the history of Hawai‘i’s Japanese.
