Pidgin: The Voice of Hawaii

Born on sugar plantations and spoken by more than half of Hawaii’s population, the Pidgin language — part English, part Hawaiian, with influences from other languages — captures the essence of multi-ethnic Hawaii. PIDGIN: THE VOICE OF HAWAII profiles this working-class language from its rise as plantation jargon to a source of island identity and pride. The film draws on a variety of sources, including archival, academic and other expert commentary, man-on-the-street interviews and performance to shed light on this colorful language.
