We are actively working to preserve the physical artifacts as well as the stories and memories of life in one of America's concentration camps located at Poston, Arizona. It was named "Poston" or the "Colorado River Relocation Center", located on the Colorado River Indian Reservation during World War II. The Poston Community Alliance is a 501(c)(3)non-profit group.

Was wondering if anyone is familiar
with this Poston family.... Shigemi and Chizuko Uyeda[Poston block 19]... They were from
Lancaster CA... SonTheodore passed in 1991 in San Diego. Has two daughters
names unknown right now...
The Rago Auction protest has brought a cool item of of
hiding.... A photography trophy from 1925 to who we believe to be Shigemi. It
was awarded from Iwata business... I know possessions from prewar times are
rare and Shigemi would go on to being a well known early CA Nikkei
photographer.... The person who has it would like it returned to the family.
Thanks if you can help. Any contact help would be appreciated.
