HMWF Chair Shirley Ann Higuchi Writes About the Current Relevance of Japanese American Incarceration


"Racism, under whatever justification its supporters can find, is still racism. It goes against what makes us all Americans. There is no racial or religious test for being an American. We should not start one now."


"Setsuko Saito was my mother. My parents met at Heart Mountain. Without 9066, I would not be here. Still, it’s my hope that no future American families will be formed in this way, because our nation’s leaders did not resist the easy call of racism and overreaction."

We rescued an original Heart Mountain Barrack from demolition and brought it back. But there is still much to do. 

Please help us stabilize and preserve this important Historic Structure!
