Success in any facet of endeavor is deep-rooted in attitudes.
A positive mental attitude leads to achievement and happiness. The Reverend Paul S. One of the best things about being part of the Japanese Cultural Center is the opportunity to meet so many interesting people. One of the most memo rable was meeting the Emperor and Empress of Japan! There is, however, one group who has made a lasting impression on me the women of the Nisei generation.
Nisei women are really the unsung heroes of their generation. We are well aware of the achievements of the Nisei men who fought in WWII, came home to jump start the democratic revolution, and begin successful careers, but what of the Nisei women?
I had the opportunity to work with the Japanese Women s Society JWS a few years back when their best-selling book, Kokoro, was released. We were working on an exhibit in the Cultural Center s gallery showcasing many of the traditions described in the book. These women were always on time, prepared, considerate, humble, and well dressed did I mention they always brought food?
It was such an honor working with these women and the exhibit was a great success! Then there s my second mom, Barbara Ishida, our volunteer gift shop manager for many years. While she has slowed down over the past couple of years, Barbara is a force to be reckoned with.
Many years ago, she led her girls from Kuakini over to the Cultural Center s gift shop. With a quick wit, she always had a story for me and I always made time to stop by the gift shop for a chat and a cup of tea. On the inside of Barbara s designer-laden exterior is a heart of gold. A strong leader who elicited loyalty from her gals.
Our Resource Center is also fortunate to have two leaders Betsy Young and Jane Kurahara both smart as a whip and tenacious as bulldogs. Together they lead the Cultural Center s groundbreaking work on the Honouliuli internment project. If not for their investigative research, this remarkable story would never have been uncovered and may have disappeared altogether. In recent months, much planning has been done to update our Okage Sama De historical exhibit. We were excited when the creative leaders of the original project, Jane Komeiji, Momi Cazimero and Tom Klobe agreed to collaborate once again.
The story of the relationship between Japan and Hawai i leading to the immigration of thousands of Japanese, and the evolution of subsequent generations is told in a moving, creative manner that is sure to bring back memories, tears to your eyes and pride in your heart as well.
I often think of what these professional, intelligent, creative, and beautiful women would have achieved had they been born just one generation later. Women today have so much more opportunity to pursue career aspirations that were difficult, if not impossible, for women just one generation ago. As we venture into this world and attain new heights, let us not forget upon whose shoulders we stand. We roared into the Year of the Tiger with our New Year s Ohana Festival on Sunday, January 10,and although the afternoon rain scared away some guests, most stuck it out to enjoy the great food, performances, games, and rides.

I find the work here very satisfying. I ve gained more knowledge of what the first and second generation Japanese went through.

Kent s love of Japanese fabrics stems from her appreciation of Asian influences on local culture. Her work is a merging of passions: Each piece is one-of-a-kind and lovingly designed to bring out the beauty of a fabric, according to Kent. Rather than sacrifice the original fabric to fit into a pattern, Kent strives to respect the original artistry. The imperfections in fabric are part of the history and story of the piece, so I don t try to hide them.
