Tae Carter, born in 1929, recalls growing up in Sendai, Japan, and her educational background. There she met her first husband, who was a member of the American military, and moved to Indiana when he left Japan. She recounts her involvement in the Japanese American Citizens League and that group's role in promoting a sense of community among people of Japanese descent in Indianapolis. Finally, she discusses her trips back to Japan and the importance of traditional Japanese customs in her everyday life.
