Voices from the Canefields

In 1960, a vernacular newspaper solicited holehole bushi lyrics from Hawaii's Japanese immigrants. Several hundred examples were submitted, some classic verses from the plantation experience, others created that year. Together, they form a snapshot of Japanese immigrant cultural life and memory at that point in time. Many of the themes are familiar but there is also regret that so many colleagues had dropped away.
