About Coach Dana - Both of Dana 's parents are of Okinawan decent: the Oshiro family is from Nishihara and the Takahara family is from Oroku. Dana recently stepped down as the Sports Coordinator for the HUOA and currently a member of the Nishihara Chojin-Kai Club.

"I am proud of my Uchinanchu heritage and have had great mentors who have taught me the importance of culture.  Okinawan culture is family oriented and we instill a family atmosphere in the Rainbow Wahine Basketball Program.  Our Wahine Basketball team is hard working, industrious, humble and appreciative of the community's support !" - Dana
