English translation by W.T. Hashizume

In the years before the Second World War, a strong Japanese Canadian farming community established itself in the Fraser Valley. The farmers and their families worked together, forming co-operatives and similar organizations to better promote and distribute their produce. One such organization was the Haney Nokai – the Haney Japanese Canadian farmers’ association. In a meeting just prior to the outbreak of the war in the Pacific, the Haney Nokai executive committed to writing a history of the Haney Nokai. Twenty years later, after surviving the hardships of internment and re-establishing their lives and livelihoods, the Haney Nokai executive fulfilled their promise and published the Japanese language Haney Nokai Shi (History of Haney Nokai) in 1963.
