In these uncertain times, the health and safety of our community (especially our kupuna) is of utmost importance to us. As of today, the Hawaii United Okinawa Association continues to plan for the 38th Okinawan Festival set for September 5-6, 2020. However, we are closely following the rapidly changing updates on COVID-19 and we will notify the community should our plans change. Ippee nifee deebiru and mahalo for your understanding and your continuing support.

Lynn Miyahira, HUOA President
