Examining Issues Faced by Chuukese Immigrants within Oahu Public Housing Developments

Item Summary

Title: Examining Issues Faced by Chuukese Immigrants within Oahu Public Housing Developments
Authors: Hom, Matthew
Instructor: Wurtzburg, Susan
Issue Date: 2012
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: The central question this study explores is how differences in Western and Chuukese cultural ideologies along with the social stigmas Chuukese communities contend with contribute to the issues they face in Oahu's public housing system. Through field research and interviews with seven community members, it was found that issues in the housing arose from the intersection of these factors rather than negative stereotypes held by Hawaii state residents against these communities.
