Intersections as American Life  The Smithsonian Asian Latino Festival 2013_a

Hey, I'm happy to say that I have a guest post in the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center's blog today!

Here is the post:

Intersections as American Life: the Smithsonian Asian-Latino Festival 2013 is a unique collaboration between the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Latino Center. The program will have a panel discussion on July 24th in Washington DC (live event is sold out, but you can watch the live stream), “pop-up” galleries featuring the work of celebrated artists who explore Asian-Latino intersections; and a two day symposium that will incite a creative convening of scholars, artists, writers, and organizers to discuss the future directions of Asian American and Latino studies.

My post is titled: Mochi and Tamales in Los Angeles. It explores my family's Japanese mochi making as well as the many Latino food fusions you can find in my Japanese American family and Buddhist Church festivals. Tamales with Chili...the best of many cultures.

Thanks Smithsonian for the feature! - mary
Pin It!

Great post! Seems a little ironic that I have to hear about an event that's in my neck of the woods from someone on the West Coast, but thanks for posting this!
