It starts with a dream,
develops into an idea,
grows into challenges & ends as a reality.
The dream - to elevate the Okinawan Festival as Hawaii’s premier cultural event
The idea - to invite international entertainers to join our Okinawan Festival
The challenge - to find ways to accommodate the change in venue
The reality - 2004 Okinawan Festival
On
September 4th - it seemed all of Hawaii and half of Okinawa were at our
Okinawan Festival. Under an unforgiving sun, thousands of
Okinawans,Okinawans-at-heart, and Okinawan “ wanna-be’s,” gathered at Kapiolani Park
to attend what would be Hawaii’s largest cultural
event for the year.
Festival ‘04 opened at 8:30am when
the Okinawa Buyo Club was introduced onto
the stage, andagi booth opened for business (and its lines never ceased), the first
bottle of Pepsi was won at Ring Toss,
and dozens of senior members sought the
limited shade available. (Shade inventory?
I counted three trees, shade fronting the
KZOO radio booth and the “Gratitude in
Action” tent).

MAHALO FOR SUPPORTING HUOA
NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2004 UCHINANCHU
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
hai tai
CHERYL OKUMA-SEPE
Hai Tai!
“Warai Fukui - Joy in our hearts brings good fortune”
In the spirit of our theme, 2004 has certainly been a spectacular
year for the Hawaii United Okinawa Association. We just finished our Okinawan
Festival which opened with our International Parade to Kapiolani Park. This
year’s Festival was a tremendous success - highlighted with the concert by
BEGIN. We would like to thank BEGIN for their generous time and donation
of two musical instruments to the HUOA. Our success happened because of
the hard work and dedication of our club members, entertainers and volunteers
from as far away as Japan and Okinawa, and our many supporters and friends
here locally. Co-chairs Rodney Kohagura, Keith Kaneshiro and Karleen Chinen
did an outstanding job.
This year of Good Fortune has also brought us:
A first time staging in the State of Hawaii of the musical
production from Okinawa “Umi Kara Buta ga Yatte Kita
(Pigs from the Sea). This production which received a
standing ovation in Okinawa and in Honolulu is a heartwarming story of the heroism, dedication, passion, and
dreams of the Okinawans of Hawaii who undertook a
humanitarian relief project to supply 550 pigs to
Okinawa which had been terribly devastated in World
War II. We are grateful to the people of Okinawa,
the Okinawa Prefectural Government, Gushikawa
City, to our co-chairs Calvin Nakama and Dorene
Tengan Niibu and to the many volunteers who coordinated this effort on our behalf.
Nidaime Teishinkai –Hawaii Shibu led by Kiyoshi Kinjo
Sensei and Ryosei Oshiro, together with guests from Hawaii and Okinawa presented “Uta Ya Sanshi Udui
Haneekachi” a recital at the Leeward Community College in celebration of their fifth anniversary. This event
was co-chaired by Henry Isara and Victor Yamashiroya.
Our Spring Craft Fair was a great success thanks to the
hard working chair George Miyashiro who spent weeks
planning this event with Tomigusuku, Urasoe, Wahiawa
Kyoyu Kai and Yagaji.
The 15th annual Kariyushi Variety Show had an extraordinary program
with karaoke competition between the men and women, Okinawan
dances, and a variety of performers. This years program was dedicated
to Nelson Yoshioka who chaired this event for the previous three years.
Proceeds from this event are to fund improvements to the Hawaii Okinawa
Center. We are grateful to former HOC Trustee Dorothy Shiroma Hoe
who started this program to highlight the talents of our senior citizens.
“With Love From Lorraine Kaneshiro” luncheon chaired by Isaac
Hokama who together with his committee members put together this
memorable event to support a cultural grant program in celebration of
the life of a beautiful woman who inspired the lives of many people then,
and now. We are grateful to her husband Arthur and their children for
sharing Lorraine with the community, and to Lorraine for her gift to the
Okinawan community.
The Okinawa Diet Plan Fundraiser at the Hawaii Okinawa Center proposed to the Administration Committee by John Tasato and chaired by
Mark Miyahira was a tremendous success. Thank you to authors Bradley J. Willcox, M.D. and D. Craig Willcox, Ph.D. for their interest and
support of HUOA.
Congratulations to HUOA’s great supporters Charlie Higa and the late
Francis Higa of FCH Enterprises, Inc. upon their recent induction into
Leeward Community College Culinary Arts, “Culinary Hall of Fame.”
HUOA’s 34th Annual Golf Tournament this Memorial Day Weekend
was a success. Neal Takara and his committee did an outstanding
job. Congratulations to Tournament Champion Craig Uyehara from
Oroku Azajin Kai.
For the first time in Hawaii an Okinawan cultural group from Brazil
graced the stage of the Hawaii Okinawa Center. Thank you to the
Brazil Ryubu Kyokai and Tamagusuku Ryu Teda no Kai, for their beautiful milestone performance. Chairman Victor Yamashiroya, Ed and
Bobbie Kuba and their committees did a tremendous job to make this
concert a success.
In June, I had the honor of accepting on behalf of the HUOA “THE
FOREIGN MINISTER’S COMMENDATION” signed by Yoriko
3
Kawaguchi, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Japan at the official residence
of Consul General Muto. This recognition award commemorates the
150th Anniversary of US-Japan Relations. In total, this commendation
was awarded to 97 individuals and 61 groups in the United States of
which 10 individuals and 5 groups were from Hawaii. The HUOA was
recognized for our contribution “to the advancement of friendship and
goodwill between Japan and the United States through our tireless efforts dedicated to the promotion of this bilateral relationship.”
A very successful Okinawa-Hawaii Student Exchange program concluded this year under the chairmanship of Jane Serikaku. Coordinated
by the Hawaii and Okinawa Prefectural Department of Education, selected high school students from Okinawa and Hawaii experienced living in a different culture.
Congratulations to Hawaii Shuri-Naha member Meredith Kuba, crowned
the 52nd Cherry Blossom Festival Queen. Meredith, the daughter of
former HUOA President Edward Kuba and Bobbi Kuba, is pursuing
her doctorate in chemistry at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She
was also selected as Miss Popularity.
This year we expanded the Okinawan Children’s Day Camp
to Waimea, Hawaii. Over 200 children learned and played
with us - enjoying the Okinawan culture. Congratulations and
thank you to the directors and staff members from Kauai, Oahu, Maui
and the Big Island.
Congratulations to former HUOA President Dr. Albert Miyasato
for his recent recognition by the Japanese Cultural Center of
Hawaii, as a Celebration of Lifetime Achievement honoree. Dr.
Miyasato is a leader in the state Honpa Hongwanji Assn., United
Japanese Society, Matsuri in Hawaii-Pan Pacific Festival and serves
as the President of the Hawaii Kimono Cultural Foundation.
We celebrated the Fall with our Autumn Okinawan Dance
Matsuri chaired by Jon Itomura. Our indoor eisa festival attracted hundreds of eisa dancers and groups islandwide.
As the year comes to a close we are looking forward
to the following events:
Kaoru Zukeran & Tae no Kai Taiko Kenkyusho Concert
Red Dirt Storytelling Festival
Winter Craft Fair & Evening Craft Fair
In addition to our cultural programs, there are some important
projects that we began discussing this
year at the meetings of HUOA’s Administration Committee, Executive Council and Board
of Directors. The Administration Committee
chaired by Jimmy Toyama has undertaken a
project involving the Higa Building Annex extension. Important discussions and research
are also underway regarding the Land Acquisition Project involving the property across
from the Hawaii Okinawa Center.
It has been an exciting and productive year.
I would like to say “Mahalo” to all our club
members, volunteers, supporters and our
HUOA staff. HUOA thrives because you are
the strength, heart and spirit of HUOA—it has truly been an honor to
serve as your 2004 President.
Ippe Nihei Deebiru.
As
“Warai Fukui - joy in our hearts brings good fortune”

YOUNG OKINAWANS OF HAWAII
BUSY, BUSY, BUSY
Yeah!!! We just finished our summer bon season and again, we had a
lot of fun with no less than 30 and at times as many as 70 performers at our
events. We started off with our major fundraiser for our Senior Luncheon with
the 2nd annual Windward Mall Summer Festival. Then went on to Wahiawa,
Kahuku , Pearl City, Kuakini and Autumn Festival. A very big Mahalo to Kiyoshi
Kinjo and Norman Kaneshiro for gathering jikata players at all of our events.
They are soooo talented, and sooooo nice looking too, not to mention how
unconditional they give back soooo positively. We also had the opportunity to
appear with Ryukyu Matsuri Daiko (Akemi Martin) at Ala Moana Park for the
opening of obon season and the Toro Nagashi lantern release ceremony. Our
shishimai continues to be busy at all YOH events as well as outside appearances. Again, a very big Ippei Nihwe Debiru to the Akamine family for generously allowing us to use their shishi to help promote the Okinawan culture in our
community. Alongside with bon dance, our members were able to experience
other cultural hands-on lessons with odaiko drum repair (thanks to Hui O Laulima
for the grant monies and Jay Iwanaga for his expertise), hapi coat making, paranku
drum making, and sanshin lessons under Norman Kaneshiro’s tutelage.
Our major highlight was our Las Vegas trip in July with 15 Yoh’ers on
board. It was hilarious, and lots of fun and of course we made sure that our very
own President Bill Akamine enjoyed himself. It was again a time of just kicking
back and relaxing. Our other activities such as our tennis social, movie night,
cosmic bowling, and luncheons also helped us to just enjoy each other’s company. As I am writing this, we are getting ready for our beachhouse in Laie gettogether and again a time to relax before our very own exclusive event: The
Christmas Senior Luncheon. We would like to say thank you very much to all of
you who continue to support us, as well as humor us for all that we do. As you
all know, the Young Okinawans strives to “spark” interest in as many cultural
areas as possible, create unconditional friendships, and give back to the community whole-heartedly. OK, enough of my seriousness…..anyone interested

STORYTELLING FESTIVAL
HAWAII OKINAWA CENTER FEATURES THE ART OF STORYTELLING
R
emember how enjoyable it was
to sit at a family gathering and
listen to stories from the “olden
days”. Grandma and grandpa would
share their immigrant
experiences of growing
up on a plantation complete with lunas, toiling
under the hot sun, and
even ghost stories.
Well, grandma and
grandpa may no longer
be around and plantaBrenda
tion life in old Hawaii is
FreitasObregon
but a distant memory.
But we can still experience and relive
Patrick Ball
these stories and
more at the First Annual Red Dirt Storytelling Festival on November 19th and 20th at the Hawaii Okinawa Center.
This first annual event is being sponsored by the Hawaii United Okinawa Association as a means of showcasing
the rich cultural heritage of Hawaii’s plantation life through
Karen
storytelling, an art form that has kept life experiences and fasYamamoto
cinating stories alive in many cultural communities for centuHackler
ries. This festival will bring together some of Hawaii’s best
storytellers and internationally renown storytellers, to share
tales in four public performances over the two-day festival.
Headlining the first “Red Dirt Storytelling Festival” —
will be renowned storyteller and internationally acclaimed Celtic
harpist, Patrick Ball. A California native, Patrick Ball is a
captivating storyteller in the Celtic tradition. His special gift
for weaving the Irish lore of his ancestral
Jeff Babb
homeland with Celtic harp pieces won him
the Circle of Excellence Award from the
National Storytelling Association. Ball has
recorded seven instrumental and three spoken word albums. He tours extensively in
the United States and Canada. Of his performances, Variety, the bible of the enterWalter
tainment industry, wrote: “Hauntingly beauCravalho
tiful ballads and lilting storytelling.” The St.
Petersburg Times described his perforNyla Ching
mances as “Richly theatrical . . . a gem of a
Fujii

It is a pleasure to express my happiness for your good
health. On the occasion of our charity program,
“Umanchu Suruti, Utati
Uduyabira”, I extend my welcome and express my joy in the
opportunity to perform for you
with my fellow artists from Hawaii, Okinawa and the mainland
United States.
As a teacher and performer of
the Uta-Sanshin tradition of
classical Okinawan music, I
represent my chapter and school in Okinawa. It has
been my life’s work to transmit the heritage of Okinawan
music to all who are interested in learning about our rich
musical tradition.
It is my greatest wish that through programs such as our
concert we will be able to help people to understand and
appreciate Okinawan music and dance. Whenever we
perform in public, we are helping to acquaint others with
the tradition that some of us take for granted and don’t
appreciate, as much as the teachers and students of the
Okinawan performing arts.
Please join with us on November 7, 2004
at the Hawaii Okinawa Center and enjoy and absorb
the beauty and richness of our cultural heritage.

OFFERS CLASS ON
OKINAWANS
Professor Joyce N. Chinen will be teaching SOC/ANTH 496J: “Okinawans Locally and Globally” during Summer Session 2005 at the University of Hawaii – West Oahu.
This course was last offered in the summer of 2000 in conjunction with the International
Scholars Forum on the Uchinanchu Diaspora as one of the Hawaii Okinawan Centennial
activities.
This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the end of the Battle of Okinawa (Irei no
hi). The Summer 2005 offering will also feature a special Uchinanchu Diasporic Communities Tour to Okinawa, Osaka, and Tsurumi-Kawasaki (outside of Tokyo). Travelers will be
able to visit pre-World War II and post-war immigration communities; museums; be in
Okinawa for Irei no hi; meet and discuss issues with professors at the University of the
Ryukyus; and learn about the changing nature of Uchinanchu culture and communities.
Dr. Chinen is working with Ms. Barbara Maeshiro of TRANS Pacific Tours on
this “one-of-a-kind” study tour. For further
information on the “Okinawans Locally and
Globally” course and/or the Uchinanchu
Diasporic Communities Tour, please contact

Considered as Japan’s top contemporary band, BEGIN’s Masaru Shimabukuro, Eisho
Higa and Hitoshi Uechi performed a fantastic
concert to a “sold out” crowd at Festival. Every inch of our Festival grounds was packed.
Our audience sat, stood, climbed and tried any
means possible to view BEGIN’s concert.
Though the crowd was phenomenal (sorry to
the poor guys who decided to go the UH footEISHO HIGA OF BEGIN
ball game instead); what is truly amazing is that
BEGIN donated their performance to the HUOA as a thank you to Hawaii’s
Okinawan community for their assistance to post-WWII Okinawa. Truly, the
Uchinanchu spirit was alive and thriving at the concert.
Sunday, September 5th proved to be the perfect closing to our
Festival. Our audience was treated to more top local Okinawan performing groups; contemporary groups such as Wayne Takamine’s TWO
TI LEAF BAND, Keith Nakaganeku’s CALABASH, Ozzie Kotani
and Steve Sano, up and coming contemporary Okinawan group
KATAREH and Okinawa’s Naha Taiko brought down the curtain to
our Festival 2004.
While Master of Ceremonies Wayne Miyahira kept our program running
smoothly, at the opposite end of Waikiki, Program Chairman Isaac Hokama and
Amy Higa started the Okinawan Festival International Parade. President Cheryl
Okuma-Sepe was joined by our 52 member clubs, US Congressman Ed Case and
Audrey Case, Consul General and Mrs. Masatoshi Muto, Cherry Blossom Queen
Meredith Kuba and her Court, Farrington, Leilehua and Waipahu High School
Marching Bands, Paranku Clubs of Hawaii, Ryukyu Kobudo Taiko, Afuso Ryu
Hawaii Sandaa Kai, Hawaii Eisa Shinyuu Kai and many others who marched
along Kalakaua Avenue inviting Waikikians to join Hawaii’s Okinawan community in the celebration of our culture.
What a party welcomed our guests at Kapiolani
Park. Saturday featured guest performers from Japan –
Naha Taiko, Shisars, and Radio Okinawa’s “Miuta
Taisho.” In addition some
of our top cultural schools
performed (Program Committee saved the other half
