Save the Date: Kīlauea Military Camp Detainment Event.

Join National Park Service archeologists, rangers and educators to learn about the experiences of Japanese-American citizens who were detained during World War II at Kīlauea Military Camp. While the story of the 1942 mass round-up, eviction and imprisonment of Japanese Americans on the mainland is well documented, little is known about the Hawai‘i detainees and their unique experience. Guided tours of the former detention camp, talk-story sessions with archeologists and the granddaughter of a detainee, plus interpretive photography and displays, are planned. More details about this half-day event will soon be shared with the public.

When: Wed., Nov. 22
Where: Kīlauea Military Camp
