【A message from World Uchinanchu Day Project “KIZUNA”】

About a hundred South American overseas students and trainees from 1991 to now were gathered for this special project to celebrate the World Uchinanchu Day!!!

In this video, we wanted to show you what we’ve learned and the “Kizuna” (bond) we gained while we were in Okinawa through dance performance. We are all associated with Okinawa and Uchina Network enables to connect us all. We are grateful to have the opportunity to know about Okinawa.

We are proud to be Uchinanchu!
