Don’t miss an exciting new conversation about “Setsuko’s Secret: Heart Mountain and the Legacy of the Japanese American Incarceration.” On October 21, 2021, Author Shirley Ann Higuchi, J.D., chair of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation, shared her painful transformational journey uncovering and writing about her family’s history and the Japanese American incarceration during World War II. Higuchi was joined by former child incarcerees, Sam Mihara and “Mr. Heart Mountain,” Bacon Sakatani who shared their own firsthand remembrances of the Heart Mountain incarceration site and how as adults, they came to terms with the reality that Heart Mountain was a US government prison. Doug Nelson, vice chair of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation and Dakota Russell, Executive Director, joined them for closing remarks on how these stories have inspired the current work of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation.
