“The Filipinos of Koloa," released on May 17, 2017, is the latest book
by Catherine Pascual Lo. The 8.5" x 11" 220-page book had its beginnings in July 1985 in conjunction with the 150th
anniversary celebration of Koloa Plantation. Updated, it highlights the participation of the Filipinos at Koloa Plantation
from 1910 to 1996, and it spotlights some of the achievements of the second and third generation Filipinos of Koloa. The
book also includes the history of Koloa Plantation, the eight major ethnic groups that made Koloa Plantation a success story,
the plantation camps and life in plantation days. Proceeds from sales benefit the Kaua`i Philippine Cultural Center
-- "A Place for All" cultures, now under construction
in Puhi across Kaua`i Community College.
