Gold clouds and a colourful flower frame a gold rabbit. Happy Lunar New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year!

It’s the Year of the Rabbit! (Or the Cat, depending on where you’re celebrating!) Check out our Lunar New Year event listings on the calendar for ideas and places to celebrate or read the Northwest Asian Weekly article which talks about how this year is the Year of the Rabbit for some and the Year of the Cat for others. Either way… Happy New Year to all!

From South Seattle Emerald (by Ronnie Estoque) – The Cham are an ethnic group in Cambodia and Vietnam, tracing their ancestry back to the historic Kingdom of Champa, dating back to the second century CE. Many Cham people became refugees during the time of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge and the Vietnam War.

From Northwest Asian Weekly (by Mahlon Meyer) – Memory knows before forgetting endures, sees, hears, feels the sway of the boat, the flaccid scent of 275 bodies packed like cordwood, knows a destination where they ate leaves and tiny crabs for a year until they came to the U.S.
