Okinawa: Past, Present, and Future (NCTA Online program)

Teachers joined us for this unique opportunity to speak with staff members of the Okinawa Prefecture DC Office to learn more about the history, culture, environment, and on-going issues surrounding the vast US military presence in Okinawa. This interactive session included a presentation by members of the Okinawa Prefecture Office located in Washington DC followed by discussion and Q&A. All educators were welcome and encouraged to attend. This session was of particular interest for teachers of social studies, history, government, ethnic studies, current events, anthropology, global/international studies, peace, and environmental studies.
