Asian Pacific Americans: Local Lives, Global Ties (Smithsonian Folklife Festival 2010)

Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) in the Washington, D.C., area speak dozens of different languages, teach classes that emphasize ethnic identity, participate in traditional practices, and contribute to the cultural landscape of our nation's capital and its surroundings. With approximately 30 Asian American and 24 Pacific Island American groups in the U.S., the more than 350,000 APAs who live in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area represent a microcosm of the cultural, linguistic, and religious diversity found from New York to Hawaii, and every state in-between. The Asian Pacific Americans: Local Lives, Global Ties program at the 2010 Smithsonian Folklife Festival will focus on what it means to be a person of Asian Pacific descent living in the United States today and examine strategies for adaptation.
