Most WRA camps had a form of communication between incarcerees, staff, and administration. At Minidoka, this took place in the form of a newspaper, known as The Minidoka Irrigator. The Minidoka Irrigator featured stories, events, sports, and even a lady’s column, making it a place for gathering news about the camp. Digital archives of The Minidoka Irrigator are available at the Library of Congress website and on Densho.
