Tsumugu Weaving Our Stories screening, a short film featuring stories from Yukoners of Japanese descent. Playing on May 19, in honour of Asian Heritage Month.
Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about the cultural and economic contributions that Canadians of Asian origin have made, and continue to make to the growth and prosperity of Canada. Here in Yukon, we have several culture organizations from around the world.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from the Chinese, Filipino, and Indian communities in Whitehorse to discuss the role of cultural communities and their contribution to Canadian society by building a strong sense of identity.
