Gila River

Presented by the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC)
Written and directed by Lane Nishikawa

Nationally recognized Japanese American playwright Lane Nishikawa was commissioned in 1996 by the Scottsdale Center for the Arts to write a play about the Gila River relocation center during World War II. Intertwining themes of racism, betrayal, patriotism and identity, the play examines the unique cultural exchange between the Pima-Maricopa Indians who lived on the Gila River Reservation and the Japanese Americans prisoners on the Reservation.

For tickets and more information, call the JACCC at 213.680.3700.

Day of Remembrance

Day of Remembrance (DOR), the community's annual commemoration of President Roosevelt's signing of EO 9066 and the World War II exclusion and internment of Japanese Americans and Japanese Latin Americans, will be held at the Japanese American National Museum. The 2001 DOR marks the 20th Anniversary of the Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR), formerly known as the National Coalition for Redress & Reparation. The National Museum, the Pacific Southwest District JACL, and other community organizations join with NCRR in reflecting upon the 20+ year journey for redress and justice, and the continuing efforts for a vibrant and strong community.
