Jimi Yamaichi is standing at the remains of an Tule Lake Internment - Segregation Center latrine. He discusses the lard soap that was made at camp and how internees brushed their teeth. Depending on how much money they had they used tooth powder, baking soda or salt that one would get at the mess hall. Tooth paste, as we know it, was not common because they came in lead tubes. Filmed and edited by Anders Tomlinson. Produced by Anders Tomlinson and Jimi Yamaichi.
