Heart Mountain, Wyoming and the Japanese American Incarceration
June 16 – 21, 2024 and June 23 – 28, 2024
For the fourth consecutive year, the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation will lead workshops for K-12 educators from around the country to learn about the Japanese American incarceration during World War II, and the conditions that led to it and which still trouble our nation. Each weeklong workshop will host 36 teachers who will study about the incarceration at our new Mineta-Simpson Institute. These workshops, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), provide educators an excellent chance to learn about key historical events at the places where they happened. We’re honored to be able to bring them to you. Read below to learn about this year’s NEH workshops!
