The Center for Okinawan Studies Lecture Series resumes with a talk by Dr. Alfred Yama Kina on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 3 pm in Moore Hall 319. Dr. Kina received his PhD in folklore studies from Indiana University in 2006. He will be speaking about his observations/experiences living in Shuri, the old capital of the kingdom of Ryukyu. Please see the attached flyer for details.Here is a link to the flyer (pdf format).
I am going to try to attend. Dr. Kina is also a licensed Okinawan dance instructor, and studied in Hawaii with Kikue Kaneshiro.
Let's support our local Okinawan culture experts!
