T-Wolf Talk: Amache National Historic Site

December 2021 marked the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Following the attack, many internment camps were created and spread throughout the country. Colorado is home to several relocation camps, including Amache, which held over 7,500 prisoners making it the 10th largest city in Colorado at the time it existed. In March 2022, President Biden signed the Amache National Historic Site Act into law, making it part of the National Park System and a national landmark. Marge Taniwaki is a survivor of the Manzanar prison camp in California and shared her experiences as a survivor and why she has helped lead efforts to restore the water tower and guard tower at Amache.
