A wind project near the Minidoka National Historic Site in Southern Idaho is spurring many descendants and former inhabitants of the internment camp to protest the moves taken by the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Minidoka saved from power lines?
The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) is seeking to preserve a part of American history that lies in a remote part of Idaho. The proposed construction of part of a 500-mile transmission line near a former Japanese internment camp in Minidoka would provide renewable energy to Idaho, Nevada, and California. However, the project poses an obstruction to the historical site, according to JACL.
