Taneyuki Dan Harada Leupp Surviver
Taneyuki Dan Harada was a 17-year-old American citizen who was abducted by US government agents from his prison home in Topaz Incarceration Center in 1943. While quietly pursuing his artistic endeavors, Taneyuki Dan Harada was identified as a "troublemaker" simply because he was educated in Japan for some of his elementary school, thus labeled a Kibei.
Kibeis were viewed as potentially dangerous by the US government because of their time spent in Japan, even though they were only children at the time. He continued painting while he was imprisoned at Leupp. When Leupp was closed, he was moved to the Stockade in Tule Lake Segregation Center. After having to go through such harsh treatment by the US government, he renounced his US citizenship. Watch this film to see what happens to him.
