Biographies

The Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition (TCDSC) biographies were written by the board, community and family members. We have gained a greater insight to their personal experiences. Sigrid Toye said, “I am now finally able to share my feelings with the universe.”

The mission of the TCDSC is to tell the stories of the Japanese, German, and Italian immigrants and others taken from Latin America. We will continue to search for such stories so please contact us so it is preserved for future generations and researchers.
