Dec 16, 2016

A major story in American history took place in the Klamath Basin, and it will be acknowledged more prominently in the future.  The only question is HOW prominently.

The Tule Lake area was home to internment camps during the second world war, keeping Japanese-Americans away from their homes and out of the general population. 

The Tule Lake Unit of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument is developing a management plan for how to better tell the story of what happened there. 

Public meetings have already been held and comments have been received. 

Tule Lake Unit Superintendent Larry Whalon talks about what happens next.
