Synopsis

This work examines the relationship between religion and protest on the Japanese island of Okinawa by analyzing the relationship between various religious beliefs, colonialism, and politics in the region. The author conducted interviews with seven protest leaders to ascertain how their religious beliefs influenced their political actions. In these interviews, the author focused upon three aspects of the Okinawan experience: the relationship of Okinawan religion to Okinawan identity, Okinawan religious empowerment and the sense of responsibility to other peoples. This work concludes that the clash of cultures (Euro-American, Asian, and Okinawan) has not damaged Okinawa, but has instead enabled the island to avoid self-pity and serve instead as a beacon of anti-militarism and pacifism.
