Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience
Virtual

PART 1: Thursday, May 26, 2022 | 7:00-8:30 PM PDT | VIRTUAL | FREE

(Part 2 will be Thursday, July 21, 2022 | 7:00-8:30 PM PDT | VIRTUAL | FREE)

The Wing Luke Museum continues an exploration of regional history and colonialism with personal stories from the early AANHPI communities – panelists who trace their ancestry back to the 1800s and early 1900s – on the theme “why we are here.” Through these personal narratives, we can better understand both the contributions of AANHPI labor and intellect, as well as the roots of racism that still impact us today.

Panelists for Part 1:

  • Nemah Choubaquak (Nisqually/Puyallup/Taidnapam/Klickitat/Kanaka, and direct descendant of John Kalama, who came to the Pacific Northwest from Hawai’i in the 1830s)

  • Bettie Luke (Chinese ancestry, whose father and grandfather had worked in this region before her family settled in Seattle, where Bettie was born)

  • Daniel Pak (Korean ancestry, whose ancestors were among the first from Korea to settle in Hawai’i)

  • Kulwant S. Johl (Sikh/Punjabi, whose grandfather came to Bellingham in 1907).

Please see panelists for Part 2 on the event listing for Thursday, July 21, 2022.
