Summary:
As a result of General Rafael Trujillo’s desire to “whiten” the Dominican society during his regime (1930-61), various immigration incentives were placed into effect in order to attract Europeans and Asians to the small country in the Antilles from the 1930s to the 1950s. In a period when Europe was ravaged by wars, numerous Europeans accepted the refuge offered by the small country. However, it was not until the mid-1950s when Asians, particularly Japanese people, accepted to relocate to the Dominican Republic. As a result, Trujillo accomplished repopulating the Dominican-Haitian border with people of non-African descent and growing the agriculture sector with the perseverance of the Japanese immigrants. In my research, I explore the process of assimilation and hybridization of this important community that counts for approximately 550 Dominican-Japanese.
