120th Anniversary of Okinawan Immigration Webinar

 

In commemoration of the 120th Anniversary of Okinawan Immigration, the Hawaii United Okinawa Association is proud to partner with the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa Center for Okinawan Studies to present an educational symposium webinar about Okinawan immigration. 

The first group of Okinawan migrants left Okinawa in 1899 and arrived in Hawaii in 1900.  But the socio-political-economic forces that led to immigration began decades earlier.  Learn about the conditions that led to immigration to Hawaii and beyond.  Presentations will be made in English and Japanese (English sub-titled).

The webinar covers Toyama Kyuzo's role and accomplishment as the "Father of Okinawan Immigration"; stories about the first two groups that came to Hawaii (1900 and 1903); subsequent changes of Okinawan community in Hawaii; and the expansion of Okinawan immigration to South America and the Pacific.

Speakers:

Masato Ishida, PhD  

University of Hawai'i at Mānoa

Masafumi Honda, PhD  

University of Hawai'i at Hilo

Special Guest Lecturer:

Munehiro Machida

former Director Center for Migration Studies, the University of Ryukyus

Commentators:

Wesley Ueunten, PhD

San Francisco State University

Takahiro Nakajima, PhD

University of Tokyo
