Sansei female. Born May 25, 1944, in the Tule Lake concentration camp, California. Her parents, both Kibei, grew up in San Francisco, California. During World War II, they were incarcerated at the Topaz concentration camp, Utah. They signed "no-no" on the so-called "loyalty questionnaire," renounced their U.S. citizenship, and were transferred to Tule Lake when it was designated a segregation camp. Dr. Ina became a psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of community trauma, and in addition to being an author and activist, has produced two award-winning documentaries, Children of the Camps and From A Silk Cocoon.
