Aloha America unearths the function of hula in legitimating U.S. imperial targets in Hawai'i. Hula performers all started traveling through the continental usa and Europe within the past due 19th century. those "hula circuits" brought hula, and Hawaiians, to U.S. audiences, developing an "imagined intimacy," a strong fable that enabled americans to own their colony bodily and symbolically. in the meantime, within the early years of yank imperialism within the Pacific, traveling hula performers integrated veiled reviews of U.S. expansionism into their productions.

At vaudeville theaters, overseas expositions, advertisement nightclubs, and armed forces bases, Hawaiian ladies acted as ambassadors of aloha, allowing american citizens to visualize Hawai'i as female and benign, and the relation among colonizer and colonized as jointly wanted. by way of the Thirties, Hawaiian tradition, quite its tune and hula, had huge, immense promotional price. within the Nineteen Forties, hundreds of thousands of U.S. infantrymen and armed forces group of workers in Hawai'i have been entertained by means of hula performances, a lot of that have been filmed by way of army photographers. but, as Adria L. Imada indicates, Hawaiians extensively utilized hula as a way of cultural survival and countercolonial political praxis. In Aloha America, Imada specializes in the years among the Nineties and the Nineteen Sixties, interpreting little-known performances and movies prior to turning to the present-day reappropriation of hula via the Hawaiian self-determination movement.
