Nima Voices is an interview series where we uplift our Nima through brief and enlightening interviews. In the fifteenth episode, Okinawan Yonsei and poet/writer/playwright Lee A. Tonouchi will be interviewed by guest host Wesley Ueunten, a Okinawan Sansei and Chair of the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University.

Join us as they chat about growing up in Hawai'i, Lee’s activism for Pidgin to be recognized as a language, Okinawan culture and diaspora, and pursuing the arts and humanities in Okinawan and Japanese American communities.
