This concluding chapter asserts that the history of Hawaiʻi demonstrates how categorical racial differences have slowly changed into a dimensional society of overlapping cultures. It provides a historical overview of the Stew Pot model in the Hawaiian case and compares and contrasts the different ethnic groups living within the Islands today. At the same time the chapter also examines the emerging ethnocultural identity (euphemistically called the “local”), which does not so much refer to ethnocultural groups as it does to an ethnocultural process of learning to effectively navigate the boundaries of race, ethnicity, and culture—within one's self and between others with whom one establishes and maintains relationships. To conclude, the chapter looks beyond the Stew Pot model and Hawaiʻi's evolving ethnocultural identity.
