Crônicas Nikkeis 8 — Heróis Nikkeis: Pioneiros, Modelos e Inspirações

A palavra “herói” pode ter significados diferentes para pessoas diferentes. Nas Crônicas Nikkeis 8: Heróis Nikkeis: Pioneiros, Modelos e Inspirações, queremos explorar o conceito do que é um herói nikkei e o que isso quer dizer para cada pessoa. Quem é o seu herói? Qual é a sua história e como ele(a) influenciou a sua identidade nikkei ou a sua conexão com a sua herança cultural nikkei?

Convidamos você a enviar as suas histórias, ensaios e outros textos em prosa. Os sujeitos devem ser nikkeis ou ter um elo significativo com a comunidade nikkei. Cada autor poderá enviar múltiplos textos. O prazo para o recebimento de artigos vai de 1º de maio até às 18h. (horário de Brasília) de 30 de setembro de 2019.

Bill Hosokawa: Out of the Frying Pan

He sat in his special chair, a blanket covered his knees, the sun warming him. Around him lay the ruins of five newspapers. His morning task was complete now, he had checked on the world. He wanted to see how newspapers covered the same stories. At the end of a remarkable career, he was still the ultimate journalist.

Bill Hosokawa was in the ninth decade of life, his 70th as a journalist. Shortly, he would move to Seattle to live with his daughter. Life began in Seattle 92 years ago, and, like the storied salmon, he would return and ...

Second Hand War Stories

In the 17 years I was able to spend with my grandfather, Herbert Seijin Ginoza, he rarely told me about himself. Most stories I heard were told second hand, by my father or great-aunts and uncles. But the stories I heard, I remembered. He would have been reluctant to be called a hero, but to me, that’s what these stories made him. When he died, I worried that his stories would die too. That’s why, one afternoon in the middle of a power outage, I sat down to interview my father, Otis Ginoza, and to record his version ...

Conocí a George Chinen cuando comenzaba mi adolescencia. Había nacido en el barco en el que su familia viajaba hacia Argentina, mientras ya navegaba dentro de la plataforma del territorio argentino, por lo que fue declarado ciudadano argentino. Su padre era Shigeo Chinen, miembro destacado de la colectividad nipona, proveniente de Okinawa, quien llegó a ser presidente de esa asociación, con conexiones sociales y políticas muy poderosas.

Su intensa vida social lo relacionó con personajes de la historia nacional e incluso bautizó a George por el rito católico, eligiendo como padrinos a quienes entonces eran las ...

My Hero: Setsutaro Hasegawa

By the time I was born in the early 1960s, the long shadow of World War Two was starting to fade. The 1950s and ’60s saw wave after wave of immigrants arrive in Australia but almost no Asians or Japanese. The white Australia policy still prevailed and if the colour of my skin was anything to go by it succeeded, however I still had my Japanese name.

My father was born Raymond Taro Hasegawa, son of Leo Takeshi Hasegawa and grandson of Setsutaro Hasegawa (ST Hasegawa), a Japanese immigrant to Australia who had arrived in 1897 prior to federation and ...
