Puerto Rican Culture in Hawaii

Information about Puerto Rican culture in Hawaii.

Between 1900 and 1901, over 5,000 Puerto Rican men, women and children were recruited by the Hawaiian Sugar Planters’ Association after a hurricane in Puerto Rico devastated the sugar plantations there. By the 1950 census, almost 10,000 Puerto Ricans lived on the islands.

Today, you won’t find any Little San Juans in Hawaii, though some traditions like arroz con gandules - called gandule rice in Hawaii - show the boricua presence. Some point out that Puerto Ricans integrated into the island just like the first wave of maverick Latino immigrants, the paniolos. These were the Spanish-Mexican cowboys who were contracted by ranchers in the 1830s to wrangle wild cattle.
