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.
