2006 marks the 100th Anniversary of Filipino immigration to Hawai’i. The theme of this year’s conference “Sakadas and Beyond: Connecting our Past to Inspire the Future” honours Sakadas, the first Filipino pioneers recruited to work the sugarcane fields in Hawai’i. Dr. Patricia Espiritu-Halagao, program chair, reports that Call for Paper topics can include past, present and future experiences of other Filipinos in Hawai’i and in the continental United States.
