Throwback Thursdays

It’s Throwback Thursday and we got the “sweetest” throwback ever, SUGARCANE!

Sugarcane was introduced to Hawaii in approximately 600 AD and was observed by Captain Cook upon arrival in 1778. Sugarcane quickly turned into a huge business in Hawaii and generated a population of about 337,000 people who immigrated from around the world. The groups of people that were contracted to work on the plantations were the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Filipinos and Puerto Ricans.
