TSUKIMI KAI is an intergenerational group of predominantly Nikkei musicians, artists, dancers, students, educators, researchers and community activists, who share a common goal: to explore and celebrate the parallel histories and lives of people of Japanese and Okinawan ancestry in Cuba and the US. In August, 2005, nineteen Tsukimi Kai members, aged 12 to 86, traveled to Cuba to participate in the obon festivities on the Isle of Youth, perform taiko drumming and obon dancing in three cities and conduct interviews of Nikkei Cubans. Through cultural exchange and dialogue, we reach across the boundaries of physical space, language, culture, history and politics to build peace, friendship and solidarity with the Cuban people.

JAM WORKSHOP's mission is to help strengthen and build a culture which reflects the lives and serves the needs of the Asian American/Pacific Islander communities through the offering of art programs that develop the artistic expression of these communities.

The National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS), founded in 1980 in San Francisco, is a non-profit membership-supported organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and dissemination of materials relating to the history and culture of Japanese Americans. NJAHS specializes in traveling exhibitions, publications, videos, interactive multimedia, military and camp collections, and educational programs.
