The King Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center announces its participation in “Tadaima! A Community Virtual Pilgrimage”Posted on Jun 24, 2020 in Featured News, News & Reports
In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, annual pilgrimages to sites of wartime Japanese American incarceration have been canceled. These pilgrimages provide important educational and community-building opportunities for descendants of those held at the camps, the Japanese American community as a whole, and the wider public. Recognizing the ongoing significance of these pilgrimages, the National Park Service and Japanese American Memorial Pilgrimages have created Tadaima! A Community Virtual Pilgrimage, which takes place from June 13–August 16, 2020. The project is hosted on the Japanese American Memorial Pilgrimages’ website and features different live presentations and pre-recorded short films.
