John Rosa’s Book About “Local” Hawai‘i
LOCAL STORY: THE MASSIE-KAHAHAWAI CASE AND THE CULTURE OF HISTORY
Local Story is a close examination of how Native Hawaiians, Asian immigrants, and others responded to challenges posed by the military and federal government during the case’s investigation and aftermath. In addition to providing a concise account of events as they unfolded, the book shows how this historical narrative has been told and retold in later decades to affirm a local identity among descendants of working-class Native Hawaiians, Asians, and others—in fact, this understanding of the term “local” in the islands dates from the Massie-Kahahawai case. It looks at the racial and sexual tensions in pre-World War II Hawai‘i that kept local men and white women apart and at the uneasy relationship between federal and military officials and territorial administrators.
