GAMBATTE BE STRONG
Stories of Japanese American Displacement and Resilience in Portland, Oregon
Created by Chisao Hata (Oregon PSR member) and Nikki Nojima Louis
The immigrant journey of the Japanese in Oregon is paved with stories of perseverance and courage. Gambatte Be Strong is the rallying cry for an original reading of the little known stories of Japanese immigration and life in America which included the loss of Japantown, the impact of EO 9066 and the eventual return of Japanese Americans to Oregon after their incarceration during WWII to Vanport, Oregon.
