In case you missed it, or if you want to re-live the experience all over again, video from the 44th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage, and the 2013 Manzanar At Dusk program is now available on our YouTube page.
The video of the 44th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage, held at the Manzanar National Historic Site on April 27, 2013, includes the entire program, from UCLA Kyodo Taiko starting us off, to the interfaith service and Ondo dancing at the conclusion of the event.
Video of the Manzanar At Dusk program is from the opening of the event, held at Lone Pine High School in Lone Pine, California, just hours after the daytime Pilgrimage program. Video of the open mic/wrap-up session is also available.
Unfortunately, due to logistical constraints, video of the small group discussions during the Manzanar At Dusk program is not available.
