Our new poetry column, Nikkei Uncovered, is curated by traci kato-kiriyama (traciakemi). Her first contribution to Discover Nikkei was in August 2013. Although she hasn’t made many contributions to the site since then, she has been a great supporter and advocate of our work, and we are thrilled to have her help with Nikkei Uncovered.

[EN] Discover Nikkei rocks! I especially appreciate the attention to STORIES. The site is so chock full of education to soak in and yet, beyond information, we are brought back, always, to stories and to a connection through personal and political narrative.

I also love how Discover Nikkei continues to stretch and bring in more and more voices from the Nikkei diaspora. It’s exciting to learn about other Nikkei beyond the States, and participate in a growing global consciousness for our community.
