46th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage Photos and Downloadable Printed Program

In many respects, the 46th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage on April 25, 2015, at the Manzanar National Historic Site, was a resounding success, enjoyed by approximately 1,500 participants.

Whether it was the booming sounds of UCLA Kyodo Taiko, the moving, insightful words of speakers Pat Sakamoto, Hatsuko Mary Higuchi, Julia Teranishi, Manzanar Committee Co-Chair Bruce Embrey, and keynote speaker Dr. Satsuki Ina, the always inspirational words of Rev. Paul Nakamura, or the always powerful, moving interfaith service, this year’s Pilgrimage was memorable for so many reasons.

Our photo essay from our professional photographers, Mark Kirchner and Geri Ferguson, is forthcoming. But for now, here are 68 photos capturing some of the sights from the Pilgrimage. Also, if you did not get a copy of our printed program from the event, or if you couldn’t make it to the Pilgrimage this year, you can download the 36-page program at:
