Interview with Harry Ho #2 4/26/88
Interview with Harry Ho recorded on April 26, 1988 conducted by Chris Conybeare for Rice Mill Days. The interview focuses on how the Chinese and Hawaiians got along with each other in the Hanalei valley before World War I, inviting each other to family celebrations, sharing fish, rice and taro and Hawaiian fishing practices. Ho also talks about how rice growing stopped on Kauaʻi because of politics, economics, land control, and the greed for the dollar; and how the Lihue Plantation eventually withdrew farmers' leases, tore down houses and converted the land into cattle pasture land.
