About us

The HMWF is an independent non-profit that manages a National Historic Landmark site on the former "Heart Mountain Relocation Center" where more than 14,000 Japanese Americans were unjustly imprisoned during WWII. The site includes a museum, the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, in addition to a military memorial, walking tour, original camp structures, reasearch center and archive.

The HMWF mission is as follows: 
  • Preserve and memorialize the Heart Mountain World War II Japanese American Confinement Site and the stories that symbolize the fragility of democracy;
  • Educate the public about the history of the illegal imprisonment of Japanese Americans at Heart Mountain during World War II and its impact on the Big Horn Basin;
  • Support inquiry, research and outreach to highlight the lessons of the Japanese American confinement and their relevance to the preservation of liberty and civil rights for all Americans today.
