 Paul Kariya 

Perspectives on What Happened to Ucluelet’s Japanese-Canadians After Pearl Harbour

Paul Kariya grew up in Ucluelet and spent his formative years on the beach, on the boats and in the community.  Fifty years later, he will share his perspectives on what it means to return to the place that has indelibly marked his journey.

While it was the Japanese-Canadians who were removed from Ucluelet and BC’s coast and suffered losses in 1942, other people were affected too. A workshop will be hosted in the Fall of 2022. Paul Kariya will introduce the subject of his upcoming workshop at the UAHS AGM on April 23.
