This presentation by Valerie Otani is about the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II in the FBI and Department of Justice camps -- a more secret, high-security system of prisons for the leadership of the Japanese American community. The term "Nikkei" refers to Japanese emigrants and their descendants. Valerie Otani is a Portland artist who creates public art that links people to their community. She has art projects throughout the west, and she currently coordinates the public art program for the City of Hillsboro.
