How there were taken/about the camps
The evacuation of Aleut Americans began in June 1942, shortly after the bombing of Dutch Harbor and the invasion of Attu and Kiska by the Japanese. Federal officials ordered that anyone of “one eighth (1/8) native blood” must go; to where, no one knew.Eventually, federal officials settled on four locations in Southeast Alaska: Funter Bay, Killisnoo, Burnett Inlet and Ward Lake.There was always ever-present death in these camps, where disease was rampant, from boils, to tuberculosis. Aleuts were placed in damp and rotting buildings for years, with little food or medicine.
