Cultural Identity and Holidays

Listen in this clip as a mother talked with her children about how they celebrate cultural identity and holidays in their mixed Vietnamese and Japanese household. Their mother shares a story about how they observed Tét (Vietnamese New Year) and her children wore traditional ao dai to school in order to share their culture and observation with their classmates. Together, the mother and her children are learning to speak Vietnamese and ensure that both cultures are honored in their home.

Do you remember how to say ‘happy new years’? No? We’re learning. Momma and you are learning.
