    Jimi Yamaichi, standing inside the stockade, continues to answer the big question - what did people do to be placed in the stockade? He introduces us to the Hoshi-Dan, a pro-Japan faction in camp that resisted and harassed the government camp administration. Jimi also talks about the "No-No" folks who decided to return to Japan after the war. No- No refers to answering no to two question on a loyalty questionnaire created in February 1943 by the U.S War Department and the War Relocation Authority. Question #27 asked:
 Are you willing to serve in the armed forces of the United States on combat duty, wherever ordered?
Question #28 asked:
 Will you swear unqualified allegiance to the United States of America and faithfully defend the United States from any and all attack by foreign or domestic forces, and forswear any form of allegiance to the Japanese Emperor or any other foreign government, power, or organization? Scenes include a pan from atop Horse Mountain looking west starting with Mt. Shasta and going north through the camp. Filmed and edited by Anders Tomlinson.
