Description

Nikkei Journey: Japanese Canadians in Southern Alberta by  N. Rochelle Sato was written as a follow-up to the museum exhibit, Nikkei Tapestry: The Story of Japanese Canadians in Southern Alberta, which was presented at the Sir Alexander Galt Museum in Lethbridge, AB in 2003.

Ten stories have been written from first-person perspectives, telling what it was really like for pioneers, evacuees, and their descendants to be Japanese Canadian. In addition, there are stories about the new immigrants who came to work on farms in the 1970s, and the Redress movement, finalized in 1988.

The stories are all true, taken from books, conversations, and interviews, and interwoven to produce composite characters representing different generational groups, each with their own unique experiences and viewpoints.
