Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers on the incarceration of Japanese-Americans in Heart Mountain, Wyoming.

"Heart Mountain, Wyoming, and the Japanese American Incarceration" is a six-day workshop that will bring K-12 teachers from around the country to Heart Mountain, one of the 10 concentration camps that held Japanese Americans who were forced to evacuate the West Coast during World War II. Workshop participants will learn about the Japanese American experience in the United States, the conditions that made it possible and the evacuation and incarceration itself. The workshop will examine the incarceration’s long-term effect on the Japanese American community and federal policies ranging from the formal apology approved by Congress in 1988 to immigration.
