Filipinos contributed a lot to Hawai'i especially at the sugar mills. Most of the sugar mills are now defunct:

Miandra Amantiad, 8, demonstrated her Filipino martial arts skills at the Filipino Fiesta held at the Waialua Sugar Mill on Saturday. Amantiad and other members of the Hawaiian Filipino Martial Arts School of Escrima Kali Arnis were among several performers showcased at the event. Food, vendors and walking tours of the old sugar mill were also part of the day's festivities.
