The issei came as Japanese and remained Japanese in a foreign land. The nisei grew up as Japanese Americans and were forced to prove their equality as Americans. The sansei grew up American. Confident of themselves as Americans, the sansei, yonsei, and gosei generations are comfortable in their search for ethnic identity, but they take pride in being local. Five themes, Americanization, Freedom to Choose, The Samurai, Roles, and Hawaiian Japanese, explore human values and critical issues of continuity and change in Hawaii. While the themes are centered on being Japanese in Hawaii, the messages are relevant to all immigrant groups who left their homeland.
