These Filipinos were said, in an 1883 Harper’s Weekly report, to speak Spanish and a Philippine language, most likely Tagalog since it was reported as Tagalogas in the article.
American colonization, however, paved the way for a mass exodus of Filipino to the US. One type of migrating Filipino was called the pensions, government scholars, who were sent to further their education and training. The others were workers, who came over as cheap. These workers came to be known as saccades. And in a constant effort to recruit these saccades the Hawaiian Sugar Plantation Association (HSPA) sent labor recruiters to the Philippines and they set up recruitment centers in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, and Cebu.
The first Filipino laborers, all Tagalogs, came to Hawaii in 1906. At first, they did not really want to come to Hawaii due to the distance from home and the rampant rumors of man-eating animals upon the isles. But after the persistence of the campaigns and the “success” stories of the first repatriated sugar workers or salads, called “Hawayanos” in the Philippines, encouraged Filipino migration.
Over the years the migration of Filipinos to Hawaii grew from the initial 150 in 1907 to the average of 7,630 arriving annually in Hawaii during the 1920s. However, in the 1930s, despite a temporary influx of Filipino migrants due to the Great Depression, the Filipinos had replaced the Japanese as the largest ethnic group working on the plantations.
There were eventually, three waves of migration of Filipinos. The first wave was before the Great Depression and World War II. The second wave came just after the war and consisted mainly of immediate families and children of some of the pre- World War II saccades. The third wave came due to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which consisted of “relative-selected” and “occupational” migration.
