Cultural Committee (Bunka-Bu)

The Cultural Committee (Bunka-Bu) was officially within the Okinawa Association of America, Inc. (Kenjinkai) during the early part of the century. The purpose is to preserve and promote the Okinawan culture, including Okinawan performing arts, the Okinawan dialect (Uchinaguchi), Okinawa's history, and the unique cuisine of the islands. These goals are accomplished by partnering with other committees and through lecture series held throughout the year.
