ABOUT

My name is Kaiya, and I am an 18-year-old Okinawan-American college student from Portland, Oregon. I went back to Henoko in the spring of 2019 because I was frustrated with the silence of media around this crisis. 

 

I wanted to make a documentary to show the world what's happening. My documentary, "Our Island's Treasure," focuses on the current destruction of the beautiful Okinawan ocean in Henoko and the fight by native Uchinanchu people to protect it.

The information on all of the action ideas are listed in detail on this website. Please help spread awareness. 

 

This is an emergency. Let's rise for Henoko!
