The Japanese Canadian settlement across Canada in the early 20th century has a unique and dynamic history. In Alberta, our chapter of this story is not well known, but still has an impact on people and communities today. Carley Okamura is a mixed-race Japanese Canadian yonsei, who was born and raised in Edmonton. She began Japanese Drumming as a teenager which brought her to the Edmonton Japanese Community Association, of which she is still a member, and co-chairs their CARE committee (Committee Advocating for Racial Equality). 

Carley presented this session at the Edmonton & District History Society on February 28, 2023. This time, she will present this to EJCA members/friends and also to  the Edmonton & District History Society members online. Please join the event with your family and friends.
