Minidoka Pilgrimage, June 23-26
More information and online registration for the pilgrimage are now available at: the Minidoka Pilgrimage Website. Registration deadline is June 1st.
Friends of Minidoka will host the annual pilgrimage to the Minidoka National Historic Site on June 25-28, 2015. The event brings together former incarcerees, their families, students, and educators from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and even Japan.
The pilgrimage offers an opportunity to revisit the place and the history with National Park Service officials and share memories amidst family, friends, supporters. It is a way to honor those who were unjustly incarcerated, to learn more about the experience, and to pass on the legacy so that this type of discrimination and injustice does not happen again.
