Dr. Toye, daughter of a Tuna Canyon detainee, will provide a brief overview of US detention during the World Wars of the 20th century, and the existing law upon which they are based. The talk will include personal reflections on the label “alien enemies”, Tuna Canyon and other detention facilities. The Tuna Canyon experience, as both fact and metaphor, will be viewed in relationship to the world climate of today.
