The Hispanics

Chapter 7 The Hispanics
People and Cultures of Hawai'i

Lisa Sánchez-Johnsen

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter focuses on the ethnocultural identity of Hispanics/Latinos and the contributions Hispanics have made in Hawaiʻi, the new multicultural identity of Latinos in Hawaiʻi, and future directions regarding their ethnocultural needs. A number of internal characteristics and external behavior patterns are commonly seen in Latinos. The chapter defines these in three areas: individual, family, and sociocultural—before looking at how a new multicultural and multiethnic cultural identity has emerged among Hispanics/Latinos due to the sociocultural interactions that have transpired between them and other ethnic groups since their first arrival in Hawaiʻi. It argues that the Hispanic/Latino ethnocultural identity appears to be in a transitional state, with a Latino cultural renaissance emerging.

Keywords:   Hispanics, Latinos, multicultural identity, sociocultural interactions, Latino cultural renaissance
