Keep your dates open! March 22-24 2019 is the next LooChoo Identity Summit. We will be returning to the University of HawaiÊ»i Windward Campus, Hale Ä€koakoa. Â The theme for this summit is “Washiraran, Mai Poina”, “Never Forget”, as we look at the importance to look at the past as we go into the future. Â Stories and events from our past, especially from the experiences of our issei, first generation immigrants, are being lost and it is important to remember and pass them on to appreciate what we have now and passion into the future.
We will be posting the details soon for pre-registration. Â Please make sure to mark your calendars . Â Special guests this year will be from the Yaeyama Islands to share their music and dances, as well as how it passes down their stories from their islands and history.
Spaces are limited. Â If you would like to already reserve a space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the details soon.
