Pacific Islanders Oral History Project

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | May 13, 2022

As it is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we want to highlight our oral history project featuring narrators discuss their personal stories of living in the Samoa, Hawaii, and Minnesota. The project interviews a wide range of individuals from musicians to social activists.
