Kakonosedai: A Century of Community

A compelling exhibition of the first Japanese Canadian pioneers of Lake Country and their experiences during the period from 1899 to pre-World War II (1939).

Kakonosedai: A Century of Community showcases the efforts by Japanese pioneers to blend the old and new to end up with a new way of life in their Canadian home. On display will be a collection of original artefacts, photographs and personal documents to supplement the stories of these courageous people. The exhibition includes objects which were brought from Japan to preserve and use in this community, with items of Canadian origin, blending the old and new to end up with a new way of life in their Canadian home.
