Yuima~ru: Spirit of Coming Together
“Why didn’t she believe our people existed?” (Shō Yamagushiku, 2021)
Yuima~ru explores the rich history of the Kingdom of Ryukyu through the stories of the Okinawan diaspora in Canada and beyond. Embodying the spirit of communal support and working together, the Okinawan diasporic community's way of life and outlook resonate with many dispersed communities across Canada. Nestled within the larger exhibit, Maru: Immigration Stories, Yuima~ru will take you on a journey of displacement, migration, community building, and a sense of belonging.
