Ranch as ʻOhana

Ranch as ʻOhana

The Role of Ranching Station Households in the Formation of the Hawaiian Ranching Community

(p.97) 5 Ranch as ʻOhana
Beyond the Walls

Benjamin Barna

University Press of Florida

During the nineteenth century a distinctive Hawaiian ranching community of varied (and often mixed) ethnic and national heritage developed as the livestock industry responded to increasingly Western business practices. Tensions between family connections (ʻohana) and capitalist relations of production (business) structured the interactions between immigrant labor and established members of the ranching community. In chapter 5, Barna discusses continuity and change in Hawaiian ranching culture visible at ranching stations on the Island of Hawaiʻi, particularly examining multicultural households within the context of community and household formation. He argues for the role of mixed, working households of ranching stations in overcoming ethnic and cultural difference among ranch workers.
