Advisory #1 (2/19/2020):

Attention Tule Lake Survivors and Students:

John Mirikitani, Ph.D., nephew of the late “Jimmy” Tsutomu Mirikitani, has generously donated funding to pay 2020 pilgrimage registration fees for Tule Lake survivors. If you are a Tule Lake survivor, please complete the Fee Grant Application form and note “Mirikitani Grant”. If additional grant funds are available, consideration will be given to students who complete the Fee Grant Application form.


The grant is named after Jimmy Mirikitani, who was born in 1920 in Sacramento, and incarcerated for nearly four years at the Tule Lake Segregation Center.

Thank you, John Mirikitani for your generosity!

As a reminder, please do not send registration forms using any courier that requires a signature; this will only cause a delay in receiving your registration materials and could put you in jeopardy of not making the final roster.

Updates will posted here and on our Facebook page: Tule Lake Pilgrimage


The role of the Tule Lake Committee (TLC) is to: (i) to educate the general public of the government's forced and unconstitutional imprisonment of over 120,000 men, women and children of Japanese ancestry into ten concentration camps; (ii) to recognize the unique role of the Tule Lake camp, ......


Tule Lake tells a cautionary tale to Californians and all Americans of the need for continuing vigilance to protect our civil liberties and civil rights. Tule Lake’s national significance as a segregation center and its unique and tragic role in American history is reflected in its National Historic Landmark status (2006) ......

The Tule Lake Committee opposes Modoc County’s efforts to build a fence on the historic Tule Lake concentration camp site.  The proposed 8-foot high, three-mile long, barbed-wired topped fence sends a message of racism and exclusion at a place that is sacred to Japanese Americans.    

Here’s what the TLC wrote to Modoc County about our opposition to the fence


Please consider helping the Tule Lake Committee’s efforts to preserve and protect the historic site with an end-of-year tax-deductible donation.

Deepest thanks to the 5,000 people who wrote to Modoc County urging them to honor the memory of Tule Lake and to find an alternative to building a fence that would desecrate the site.  With your support, we continue the struggle to resist and persist in the fight to preserve Tule Lake for future generations.
