PRESENATION A SUCCESS!
The Asian American Legacy Stories Committee of the Asian American Association of New Mexico wishes to thank all who tirelessly worked to provide a wonderful afternoon.
On November 22nd, 2014 The Asian American Association of New Mexico presented the Asian American Legacy Stories: The New Mexico Experience at the Hibben Center at the University of New Mexico. This project is a community-based effort do self-document the stories of Asian Americans in New Mexico. The project received a grant to interview the leadership of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance, the Japanese American Citizens League and the Filipino Historical Society of New Mexico. To full fill this grant, a presentation was held for the community and it's leaders to show excerpts from these interviews. The full length interviews will be archived with the Special Collections of the Rio Grande Valley Library System, the Southwest Center for Research, and hopefully with the State itself. This presentation was very successful. An Encore Presentation is slated to occur in February of 2015. More informational will be made available as the details are forth coming.
2014 FESTIVAL OF ASIAN CULTURES
The Asian American Association of New Mexico would like to thank everyone who made the 2014 Festival of Asian Cultures a success, the Sponsors, the Vendors, the Volunteers and the Public.
Due to the construction down on CIVIC PLAZA, we moved the Festival to the New Mexico Veteran's Memorial Park (1100 Louisiana Blvd SE, Albuquerque NM)
To see what our Festival was like last year, please go to our Previous Events Page above for pictures from 2013 and other previous years.
