My sister, Linda, and her husband, Phil, went to the Okinawan Festival on Sunday, 9/2/17. She emailed family members a couple days ago: “At the Okinawan Festival this year, met this person in the Cultural tent that was willing to scan and send the entire Okinawan language book to anyone who asked. Hope you all find it beneficial.”
She received an email response from Janice Kimie Toma Shiira with a PDF attachment, Rikka, Uchinaa-nkai! Okinawan Language Textbook for Beginners (2017), and this message:
Subject: Fwd: “Rikka, Uchina nkai” Textbook Second Edition Okinawan Language

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
