Hawai Shokumin Shinbun Masthead

Hawai Shokumin Shinbun (shokumin meaning transplantation or colonialists), founded in 1909, was the second oldest Japanese-language newspaper published in Hilo on the island of Hawaii. It was succeeded by Hawai Mainichi (1913–41). The paper, which represented a moderate voice among the members of the Japanese community in Hawaii, advocated their permanent settlement in Hawaii instead of being temporary migrant workers.
