Hokubei Hochi Foundation

Jump to Hokubei Hochi Foundation Site

The Hokubei Hochi (North American Post) Foundation (HHF) is a non-profit 501c3 entity newly established in Seattle, Washington. The Foundation’s mission is to promote and preserve the culture of the Nikkei and Japanese community through educational and cultural projects and activities in the Pacific Northwest. HHF’s vision is for a vibrant Nikkei and Japanese community connected and engaged through relevant news and enriching programs. HHF seeks to preserve the community’s history and culture for future generations.

So why another new non-profit, 501c3 organization in our community? It has been our long-held vision to establish a non-profit entity to carry on the legacy of an important Nikkei (Japanese American) newspaper institution, The NA Post.

While our new HHF is a separate legal entity, we are affiliated with The NA Post and have set forth our mission to support the preservation of news, history, and culture through educational and cultural projects. Many of these activities are best suited for our Foundation to carry on, while The NA Post focuses on its primary mission – to bring the readers the most current and engaging news and information.

The HHF will be sponsoring many educational and cultural events, most of them in the Nagomi Tea House space in Seattle’s International District. There are two substantive projects: The Nikkei Newspaper Digital Archive Project and Student Intern Program. Please learn more about these programs under the Programs tab.
