A person’s tale
Nishinaga deals with highly personal matters, such as his roots and body.
However, his point of view is critical, a social intervention from his position.
The story of "a certain person," told through kagee (paper cutouts), is Nishinaga's personal account, but it can also be read as a story about Okinawa.
