Description
These small tokens commemorate the time spend as incarcerates in the Amache Incarceration Center in Granada, Colorado. The image found on each of these tokens is known as "Lil Neebo," who was born in the "Pacemaker," a mimeographed newspaper from inside the assembly center of Santa Anita. Lil Neebo was supposed to represent all Nisei. Nisei are the second generation of people born in America or elsewhere of Japanese descent. Scrapbook page from Misao Okada’s album.
5 small, round, colorful tokens
Misao Okada’s scrapbook contains photographs, ephemera, notes, and correspondence documenting her time at Amache and a visit and reunion over 50 years later. The scrapbook also includes materials relating to reparations and events observing Japanese American incarceration.
