Description

Yenokida discusses his time after his imprisonment, working in Denver, farming and shipping vegetables with his brother. Later, they would head back to Cortez to visit their mother and start their own farm, which ended up having over 3,000 acres of farmland, until President Carter decided to have an embargo on Russia, which ended up causing the farm to close. During that time, his brother would drive up to Tule Lake Concentration Camp to help those who did not have anywhere else to go and gave them jobs on the farm. Next, Yenokida discusses the redress and reparations that were given to each family and what it means to him. Finally, he speaks about the legacy of those that went to the camps, served in the war, or took a stand against the government.
