Welcome to the Okinawa Association of America (OAA)'s official website! Our website is currently under construction, so here are the best ways to keep up to date with the OAA:

  • Visit our Facebook: If you have a Facebook profile, feel free to "like" us, post comments, and share all things Okinawan! :)

  • Sign up for our "Jigami-gwa" eNewsletter: All you need to do is email your name to and you'll receive OAA updates via email!

  • Subscribe to our YouTube channel: We're trying to post more videos that document our latest events as well as the history of the OAA. Watch and learn!

  • Visit our news/blog and newsletter pages: For those who don't want to bother with social networks, we still do things the "old-fashioned" way!

  • Become a member (see below): Our organization was built on and survives because of its members. Ichi nu ichimadin (From generation to generation)!

The membership fee is $20 per year for individuals and $30 per year for family membership. The OAA is supported by membership fees and by volunteer work.
