Did you Know?

Did you know that a land acknowledgment is a good first step in recognizing and honoring our Indigenous friends and neighbors? It’s important to understand the history of our home, and the tribes who took care of the land before they were forced to leave. Land acknowledgments aren’t the only way to celebrate Indigenous peoples and their culture, so we encourage you to support and learn more about the Tribes who live near you!

Learn more about the importance of Land Acknowledgments with Aunty Lena and Possum, from Look, Listen, and Learn TV.

Did you Know?

Did you know that call and response is a style of singing that has roots in African music? It was introduced to the Americas by enslaved peoples who brought their music and traditions with them. Now you can find call and response in all types of music from pop, gospel, folk or even jazz. In this style, a singer will sing a phrase, and the audience will respond with a new phrase, or answer a question, creating a song together!

CID

Chinatown-International District (CID) is a place deeply rooted in Seattle’s history, giving us access to an incredible collection of stories, experiences, and personal accounts, helping us better understand the city that we live in. Made up of a collection of neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Japantown, Little Saigon, and Filipino Town, it’s now home to Asian communities that have shaped the culture and history of the place. The Wing Luke Museum, located in Chinatown honors the history and people of the CID both past and present. The Tiger icon is a reference to the Vietnamese folk tale of the Farmer and the Tiger. You can hear Doan tell the story below, and go see the mural depicting the story yourself on the ground at the intersection of 14th and Jackson in Little Saigon. The Tiger is also a part of the Chinese Zodiac, one of twelve animals representing a Lunar year. 2022 will be the year of the Tiger!

All videos will be livestreamed 11am-noon on October 16, and available to rewatch here soon after!
