Background: 

This event is in honor of Japanese American Day of Remembrance, an annual observance of the signing of Executive Order 9066 that ordered 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry to be imprisoned in concentration campus during World War II. 

This show benefits Friends of Minidoka and the Minidoka Pilgrimage. With your contribution, we will be able to offer Senior Scholarships to those who were incarcerated at Minidoka Incarceration Camp to attend the Minidoka Pilgrimage.
