Disturbing History

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter explores the circumstances under which women questioned and confronted colonial and patriarchal power. Two kinds of records are available for this task. The first is the seemingly haphazard intervention of women in the colonial record by way of individual acts that required the notification of the Colonial Secretary’s Office. The second is the more generalized reporting (through commissions, reports, and the Proceedings of a Native Council or Council of Chiefs) in which women were discussed as a broad entity in need of special attention by the colonial state. This chapter juxtaposes these sources in two broad sections representing two major groups of women whose experience of colonialism was similar but separate.

Keywords:   women’s resistance, feminism, colonial records, indigenous Fijian women, female Indian laborers, colonialism
