Okinawan Americans

Transcrições disponíveis nas seguintes línguas:

The whole headquarters of the Okinawa Association of America is located in Gardena, so that’s for the entire country. So it is smaller, but there are pretty big pockets I think. Texas is a big pocket of Okinawan Americans, I want to say Utah is another big pocket too. And so I think here we’re so much more spread out and that makes it so difficult to take all of our energies and move it towards something bigger, whatever we want to create. Whereas in Peru, everything is so centralized and localized in the Okinawan stadium, or in Okinawan project that it’s easier for them to mobilize. So I think that’s one big difference, just space.
