The Poston Virtual Pilgrimage is an opportunity to learn more about the Poston incarceration camp, where over 17,000 Japanese Americans were imprisoned during WWII.

A video of the current Poston site, preservation efforts, conversations with survivors as well as art, and remembrances related to the camp will be featured.

The virtual pilgrimage is organized by the Poston Community Alliance, which is actively working to preserve the stories, artifacts, and historic structures of Poston, a World War II Concentration Camp, located on the Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) reservation .

 

In collaboration with the CRIT Tribal Council, we are upholding the memories of camp life and highlighting the significant links and relationships between the Japanese American detainees and members of the tribal community.
