Pioneer Mill Company: A Maui Sugar Plantation Legacy

James Higuchi

James Higuchi

“As far as living in Pu‘ukoli‘i, Pu‘ukoli‘i was a big camp, plantation camp, you know, owned by the Pioneer Mill Company. We rented our homes from Pioneer Mill. And, well, growing up in a camp like that was fun because there were about, I would say, about maybe two hundred families with many children. All the families had about six, seven, eight, nine children so, you know, we had plenty playmates. So growing up was enjoyable.” —James Higuchi
