Whereas, Mr. Weaver has been working in this line of business for the past 12 years. The
definition of NAKA is Nothing Against Kan Achieve. Mr. Weaver wants to show that we can
achieve our dreams with drive and determination. Because of this NAKA was born; and

Whereas, NAKA’s aerobics classes provide different types of music to exercise from. NAKA’s
clothing line is new to the scene and tee shirts can be purchased at the aerobic classes. NAKA’s
dance and choreography is very versatile, ranging from gospel, hip hop, modern and jazz; and

outside of poverty and violence.

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Council of the City of Pittsburgh recognizes
and commends Mr. James Weaver for his active participation in encouraging minorities and
others on keeping fit and teaching the importance of exercising and maintaining good health.
