Tag: Minidoka Pilgrimage

Minidoka National Historic Site continues to hold a mixture of memories and strong emotions – feelings of denial, distrust, shame, and joy. Hosted by Minidoka Pilgrimage Planning Committee, the Minidoka Pilgrimage is attended by former incarcerees, their family members, friends, and allies. The pilgrimage offers an opportunity to revisit the place and the memories amidst family, friends, supporters, and National Park Service officials. The intent is to honor the first generations of Japanese Americans who suffered most under institutionalized racist laws, to deliver the message of “Never Again,” and to pass on the legacy to anyone who will listen.
