Students enrolled in one of University of Hawaii West O'ahu's anthropology courses, ANTH 383 Museum Studies with Dr. Christy Mello, are gaining hands on experience in museum operations as they prepare to showcase an exhibit on loan from the Hawaii Okinawa Center. It will be displayed on the 2nd floor of UHWO's campus library this September 29th through October 10th 2016. The "Children's Peace Messages of Okinawa" exhibit is a collection of images, essays, and poetry. Children living in Japan created these peace messages in the year 2000 to share with the ambassadors of embassies from across the world. Inspired by lessons learned about the WWII Battle of Okinawa in which there were an estimated 100,000 civilian casualties, this was a peace education project in which the children were assigned a country to send a message of peace. Students at UHWO wish to share and broadcast these messages of peace to a world that continues to be embroiled in violent conflict.
