Tadaima 2021

KENT, WA (August 1, 2021) – From August 29, 2021 to September 25, 2021 Japanese American Memorial Pilgrimages (JAMP) in partnership with the National Park Service will co-host the second annual Tadaima! A Community Virtual Pilgrimage. This pilgrimage will run continuously for four weeks, with new content provided daily. The pilgrimage is free and open to the public and will be available online at www.jampilgrimages.com. Registration opens on August 15, 2021.

Due to COVID-19, most organized annual pilgrimages to WWII incarceration sites were cancelled in 2020. Tadaima! A Community Virtual Pilgrimage was developed in an effort to provide a safe space for the Japanese American community and allies to learn, communicate and collaborate as they normally would during pilgrimages. Tadaima 2020 focused on Japanese American history, from the 1800s to today, and the archived program can be found at https://www.jampilgrimages.com/tadaima2020.

Tadaima 2021 will expand upon Tadaima 2020 to address identity, indigeneity, and intersectionality as they relate to the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans. This program will showcase Japanese American artists, live panel discussions featuring a diverse collection of speakers, and opportunities to engage in meaningful discussion for Nikkei and allies alike. Tadaima 2021 is a collaborative effort between Japanese American and ally organizations worldwide. This year we hope to forge new connections within and around our diverse Nikkei community, to rebuild relationships fractured by intergenerational trauma, and to begin the journey to healing collectively through mutual respect and understanding.

Once again, we are thrilled to invite the general public to participate in this historic community driven event, to celebrate the diversity and resiliency within and surrounding the ethnic Japanese community. Scholars, artists, educators, and expert panelists will collaborate to deepen our understanding of the after-effects of WWII Japanese American incarceration, and to highlight lesser-known intersectional, indigenous, and intergenerational perspectives. Please join us in our journey this year, we welcome those from all walks of life to this year’s pilgrimage!
