We are an organization dedicated to the preservation of Okinawan customs and traditions. Our membership is comprised of both Okinawans, Okinawan descendants and non-Okinawan members who share our love for the Okinawan culture. There are about two hundred families in the Chicagoland area and we also have many other members from other states like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, and even California.

Celebrate together! World Uchinanchu day!
