Unsettling Hawai‘i

Unsettling Hawai‘i

(p.129) Conclusion Unsettling Hawai‘i
Building Filipino Hawai'i

Roderick N. Labrador

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter revisits the idea of identity territorializations and their use in immigrant struggles for community empowerment. It asks what happens when “home”-making processes and practices occur in someone else's “homeland.” Specifically, it examines how Filipino identity territorializations directly and indirectly engage indigeneity and local struggles for indigenous rights. Are Filipinos in Hawaiʻi one of the Asian settlers participating in the double colonialism of Hawaiʻi? How does engaging indigeneity shift our understandings of people, place, identity, and empowerment? What are the relationships between indigenous rights and immigrant rights? The chapter participates in broader conversations about settler colonialism but is also involved in more general discussions about the relationship between people, place, identity, and politics.

Keywords:   identity territorialization, Filipino immigrants, community empowerment, Filipinos, indigeneity, indigenous rights
