The Ukulele

This concluding chapter examines the new political and cultural consciousness which developed among Native Hawaiians. The influence of the civil rights movement on the mainland, protests against the war in Vietnam, the decolonization of former European possessions in the Pacific—all helped set the stage for the “Hawaiian Renaissance.” Indeed, Hawaiian politics and musical culture were closely entwined. Eventually, more than 150 ʻukulele clubs have sprung up across the United States, in part aided by the ease with which individual players can find each other online. This renewed interest in the ʻukulele has led to a revival of interest in its value in the classroom as an effective and inexpensive way to promote musical literacy.
