Minidoka Pilgrimage Committee
Gloria Shigeno is a member of the Minidoka Pilgrimage Committee. In 2003 she attended her first Minidoka Pilgrimage, and together with her husband, Ron, and many supportive friends, they organized “Minidoka Remembered.” They discovered at that time that Japanese Americans were ready to share their stories, their anger, and the hardships they suffered relating to the disruptive, destructive, and shameful years between 1942 and 1945. Ms. Shigeno remains committed to providing a safe environment to facilitate healing and educating people through pilgrimages to the ten American concentration camps.
