The annual Day of Remembrance on February 19th marks the day that President Roosevelt signed E.O. 9066, allowing the forced incarceration of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry from the West Coast and placing them into American concentration camps. This year marks the 75th anniversary since the signing of that order. The 2017 Day of Remembrance program at Seattle University is in cooperation with the Minidoka Pilgrimage Planning Committee which organizes the annual pilgrimage to the Minidoka National Historic Site in Idaho. This site is where the majority of the residents of Washington, Oregon and Alaska were held.
This fundraiser will feature various takio groups and will feature discussion about the impacts on this experience in today’s climate. The program will begin at 1 pm and exhibits will open at Noon. Proceeds will benefit our scholarship program for survivors of the camp 80 years and above to attend the pilgrimage and our youth scholarship program. This year's taiko lineup includes: Inochi Taiko, Kaze Daiko, Okinawa KenjinKai (OKK), Seattle Kokon Taiko, UW Taiko Kai and Seattle University Taiko.
