Asian American Settlers' History in North Minneapolis
A total of 19 interviews of Asian American-Pacific Islander immigrants were conducted in English and selected Asian Languages. The project successfully captured information about their immigration history, settling experience and their memories in relationships to historical events in North Minneapolis. Eight of the interviews were recorded with a digital video camcorder then the interviews were transcribed by language specialists, then translated into English.
The summary, transcripts and video recording will be preserved and made broadly accessible through:
- Public Repository - Concordia University, Center for Hmong Studies
- Asian Media Access web site - Asian Pacific American Community Network
