Korean Immigration to Hawaii

Information about the first Korean immigrants in Hawaii including where they came from and why they immigrated from Korea to Hawaii.

The first Korean contract laborers arrived in Hawaii on the S. S. Gaelic on January 12, 1903, to work on Hawaii's sugar plantations. 102 Korean workers arrived in Hawaii that day including 56 men, 21 women, and 25 children. Between 1903 and 1905 nearly 8000 Koreans arrive in Hawaii, but about that time, the Korean government halted immigration to Hawaii because of reports that Korean workers were mistreated in Mexico. Korean brides arrived in Hawaii between 1921 and 1925. There was a second wave of Koreans immigrating to Hawaii between 1965 and 1980.
