NAKA is an endorsing organization to this event, sponsored by the Washington Coalition for Dokdo Island

On October 25, 1900, Dokdo Islands became part of Kyung-sang province of Korea (the modern Ulleung County) by a royal decree. North Kyungsang province observes this day annually, and the Korean-Americans around the Washington DC area will also observe October 25 as the Dokdo Day starting with this year¡¯s First Dokdo Day celebration. We hope to educate the Korean community as well as the non-Koreans about Dokdo to create a public opinion that Dokdo is a part of Korea. We are also having Korean traditional musical performances and Tae-kwon-do demonstrations on stage to publicize the Korean culture.
