Not that it matters, but my understanding (and research) is that the instrument (the ukulele) was brought to Hawaii by Portuguese fisherman or farmers in the 1870s, no doubt under a differenct name, and quickly became adopted by Hawaiian musicians, much the same way that the popularity of the ukulele is growing so rapidly today.
