tyfferz December 20 is proclaimed Sakada Day ️ While the history itself is mind-boggling especially if you read Ronald Takaki's book, "Strangers from a Different Shore", the fact is how our grandparents, great-grandparents traveled here for a better opportunity to give to their family and future generations. My husband's dad came here in the 1930's, my papa came here around that time also. Both hard-working men ️ It's just unfortunate the plantation village is disappearing and the current/future generation won't even know the sacrifices or history of Filipinos (as well as Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Puerto Ricans, Portuguese, etc) working in sugar/pineapple plantations in Hawaii as well as the mainland. #legacy #history #sakadas #hawaii #oahu #oahusugarplantation #ewa #waipahu #waialua #filipinos #sakada #plantation #sugarplantation #sugarmill #sugarindustry 12h
  •   duchessrlr P.s. Thanks for the tip on the book...gonna get it. 11h
  •   tyfferz @duchessrlr on ancestry, they had my father-in-law's and papa's paper work when they arrived by ship. It's interesting and I wished that the plantation mansion could have been turned into an Ewa Plantation museum. 11h
  •   tyfferz @duchessrlr that book is no-holds barred on the history of all plantation workers. It's an eye-opener. I bought it at the National Archives in DC (of all places!) but they have it available online at Barnes & Noble or Amazon too! 11h
  •   duchessrlr I'm so glad that my dad kept his papers. I get to read and learn about my family tree first hand. Obessed about preserving the past. 11h
  •   tyfferz @duchessrlr that is great! Do you have old pictures too? I love looking at old pictures of Ewa. 11h
  •   duchessrlr Let's share when we get together....couple of old souls..lol! 11h
  •   jennav828 My grandfather came in 1927 from the Philippines and worked at the sugarcane plantation for 42 years. He used to tell us stories of how hard work was then--like how he loaded sugarcane stalks into trucks and that backbreaking work paid him a dollar a day :( My grandpa worked hard all his life to provide and care for us. He never took anything for granted. Each time he had the chance, he would always remind me to aim high and be dedicated to what I believe in. He retired at the age of 88! This post made me miss him so much. I have to get the book! 11h
  •   tyfferz @jennav828 the stories you hear from your grandparents are interesting and humbling, isn't it? I believe Ronald Takaki also wrote a book specifically focused on the Filipinos plantation workers too. 8h

ladysamson At the end of the day, it is all in God's loving hands. - How does this make you feel? Does this worry you, or does this give you comfort?
.
Lord, may we be comforted by the knowledge that you see the bigger picture. "Let your steadfast love comfort me according to your promise to your servant." - Psalm 119:76 🏼

ladysamson "When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul." - Psalms 94:19
.
You can't hold on to both your care and God's comfort. Cast your cares upon the feet of Jesus, do not reel them back in. Cares will not make you glad, but His comfort definitely will.

Thank you Lord for my job. May you hear the prayers of those struggling to provide basic needs for their loved ones.
