Over the last 150 years, Asian Pacific Americans have emerged as a distinct, noteworthy population. The fate of Asian America as always been intertwined with U.S. immigration policy, which has determined its population size, shaped its ethnic composition, and defined its socioeconomic character. The first part of this chapter explores this phenomenon by covering the demographic history and changes in Asian America, focusing on the last half-century.
The second part of this chapter discusses the experiences of Native Hawaiians in Hawai`i, which, despite an exodus to the mainland during the later half of the twentieth century, remains home to the majority of Native Hawaiians in the United States. The history of this indigenous population is one of tragedy and near genocide in the face of colonialism as well as resilience and recovery in recent decades.
