Tsutae Sato

Tsutae Sato (born 1891 in Tanamura machi, Fukushima-ken, Japan; died May 23, 1983 in Vancouver) was the fifth principal of the Vancouver Japanese Language School from 1917 until 1942, and then again from 1952 to 1966. There were about 150 students registered at the Vancouver school when Sato and his wife took over in 1917, and enrollment increased to over 1,000 by the time the school temporarily closed in 1942 due to the internment. In 1952, after a decade in exile from the coast, the Satos returned to Vancouver and resumed their role as the Principals of the Vancouver Japanese Language School until their retirement.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
