Nikkei Community Internship's 10th Anniversary!


Japanese American National Museum

The Japanese American National Museum has long been a supporter of and intern community-based organization for NCI.  In this picture, Koji Sakai is giving NCI 2005 interns a tour of the Childrens' Courtyard right outside of the museum.

"The Japanese American National Museum is dedicated to fostering greater understanding and appreciation of America's ethnic and cultural diversity by preserving and telling the stories of Americans of Japanese ancestry.  Since its incorporation in 1985, the National Museum has grown into an internationally recognized institution, presenting award-winning exhibitions, groundbreaking traveling exhibits, educational public programs, innovative video documentaries and cutting-edge curriculum guides.  The National Museum is one of only 15 institutions in Southern California that has received accreditation from the Association of American Museums.

Another way that the Museum is expanding its reach is through its web projects.  In addition to the janm.org site, the award-winning Discover Nikkei (discovernikkei.org) is an international network that celebrates cultural diversity and explores both global and local identities.  The project connects generations and communities by sharing stories and perspectives of the Nikkei, people of Japanese descent who have migrated and settled throughout the world."
