A Hawai’i-Okinawan Story

Immediately following the end World War II, word got back to Hawai’i of how Okinawa was in dire need of help. The Hawai’i Okinawans got the community together and raised money to buy 550 pigs to send back to their ancestral home. Seven men agreed to take the pigs back to Okinawa.
