Echoes of History: Mistreatment and Incarceration in the American West
Professional Development Program Type
Professional Development Program Audience
Our workshop places the Japanese American incarceration during World War II in the context of the mistreatment of different ethnic and ideological groups in the American West from the founding of the United States. This includes the systematic elimination of indigenous cultures, the racism against Asian immigrants and the oppression of German immigrants in Montana during World War I.
