My name is Sammie Choy, and I currently live on O‘ahu in the ahupua‘a of Waikīkī. My family, Korean and Okinawan, go back three generations in these islands. I must first explain that my relationship to Asian America is that of the participant-observer, a stance which has informed my activity in Asian American theater. There are two reasons for this: one, I was raised only partially in the United States and two, most of my time in the US has been spent in Hawai‘i. Thus, my sense of self was inadvertently constructed both as “local” and as “foreign.” I only began to explore Asian America when I became involved with San Francisco’s Asian American Theater Company in the 1990s. For the last decade, I have been primarily directing theater about Hawai‘i’s history produced by a Native Hawaiian coalition. To contextualize, I am a U.S. theater practitioner of Asian descent working with an indigenous activist group to remind and inform a variety of audiences of this land’s history and of the wrongs still to be righted.
