    Today's Filipino community in Hawaii traces its roots to 1906 when 15 sakadas (contract laborers) were recruited from the Philippines by the Hawaiian Sugar Planters Association (HSPA) to work on the sugar plantations in the then US Territory of Hawaii. The community celebrated its centennial anniversary in December 2006, and a State Commission to oversee the observance was named by former Gov. Benjamin Cayetano following a bill passed by the Hawaii State Legislature.
