Diaries are an important resource for historians as they are first person primary material.

The Coalition has commissioned the translation of several diaries such as Reverend Daisho Tana, Sasabune Sasaki, and others. Here is the account of Reverend Daisho Tana who was picked up since he was a Japanese Language Teacher.

Legacy Project at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello
Oct 8 @ 11:00 am

On October 8, the Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition invites all descendants of detainees, friends, and family for a reunion at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello from 11:00. We have been honored to receive a new National Parks grant to record stories with the children of the detainees (who are in their 80’s and 90’s). The traveling exhibit has been well received during its run with the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego, Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, Manzanar Historic site, Pasadena a Playhouse and now at Bolton Hall Museum in Tujunga. This grant will interview 25 more individuals.

The Grateful Crane Ensemble has produced a special tribute named “Only the Oaks Remain.” A traditional rose ceremony in memory of ancestors will mark this important occasion. Sponsorship opportunities are available.

Individual tickets are $75. Contact us at remembertunacanyon@gmail.com or donate online please. Hope you will join us.

Freeway close. Free parking.
