The Hawaii United Okinawa Association's mission is to promote, perpetuate and preserve Okinawan culture. The organization is made up of 50 member clubs, whose combined member total exceeds 40,000 members. It is governed by a Board of Directors representing each HUOA Member Club, and an elected Executive Council. HUOA employs an Executive Director and a staff of three full-time and two part-time employees. We are truly fortunate to have an extraordinary team of volunteers who become active and represent their Clubs, become officers of HUOA, run various cultural and community events, provide support staff in the office, work as landscapers, maintenance workers, painters, janitors, and the list goes on. What we are known for and our biggest of event the year is the Okinawan Festival, traditionally held on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend at Kapiolani Park in Waikiki.
