Emiko (Amy) Mori – An Interview

Elder Emiko (Amy) Mori shares her stories of growing up in Maple Ridge (just outside of Vancouver) when one day she and her family were forced to move temporarily to Hastings Park and then onto Lemon Creek at an internment camp during WWII. After the war ended her family was given the ‘choice’ of moving east or to Japan – her family chose Japan.. but it was not what they expected. Eventually Amy moved back to Canada and currently resides in New Denver BC.
