On my way back from experiencing the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 I made a detour to honor the souls of the No-No Boys and others once incarcerated during WWII at the Tule Lake Relocation Center in the far north of California. I played my song 'My People with the Hopi Go' which is about the, history of the internment of people of Japanese ancestry, their interactions with the Native People and human resilience.
