OREGONíS NIKKEI: AN AMERICAN STORY OF RESILIENCE
THE CALVIN & MAYO TANABE GALLERY

This is a story of discrimination, resilience, and identity. It begins in rural Oregon and the streets of Japantown where Japanese immigrants embraced American ideals. It leads to the bleak landscape of American concentration camps. The story continues with the rebuilding of communities and the ongoing fight for justice.

This exhibit explores the story of Japanese Americans in Oregon from early immigration and the establishment of farms and communities to the abrupt, unjust incarceration during World War II, and finally as citizens playing vital roles in Oregon today.
