This chapter describes how the industrial plantation created a living rhythm to the tune of a global market that dictated the lives of workers and shaped the land. The plantation community is an ecological community of plants, animals, and humans sustained by soils, rains, and technology. Carved from a tropical environment of indigenous species and human communities, Hawaiʻi's plantations were artificial creations planted on the landscape and managed from the top through minutely sequenced decisions and actions. The managers and owners were temperate-climate and continental people, either born or educated in Western nations. The workers were from different ecological zones and cultures of Asia, the Pacific, Europe, and North America.
