Date: Saturday April 9, 2011
Reverend Nakasone will give a short talk and sign copies of the book at this special event in the NJAHS Gallery. Followed by music performed by Dr. Wesley Ueunten. About the book: The first Okinawan immigrants arrived in Honolulu in January 1900 to work as contract laborers on Hawai'i's sugar plantations. Over time, Okinawans would continue migrating east to the continental U.S., Canada, Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico, Cuba, Paraguay, New Caledonia, and the islands of Micronesia. The essays in this volume commemorate these diasporic experiences within the geopolitical context of East Asia.
