I am proud to announce that Paradocs will be part of a new project funded by the California Council for the Humanities Story Fund.
 
It is called Look to the Source: Intergenerational Talk Story with Pacific Islander Elders we are partnered with the community group Pacific Islander Health Partnership (PIHP) located in Garden Grove, CA.
 
Last month I had my first meeting with PIHP and Project Director Juliet McMullin it was inspiring and I am looking forward to giving you periodic updates about the project here on this blog. My role in the project will be to document the interviews of the elders and provide input on shooting techniques and story development of the piece. It is a very exciting project!
 
Here is a short description of the project. With over 282,000 Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders (NHPI) in California , Look to the Source, will tell the compelling storied of community elders through the native oral history tradition of “talk story” sessions conducted by Pacific Islander youth and young adults. This project will enhance the greater public’s understanding of the effects and importance of the NHPI community’s efforts to preserve cultural knowledge and practices, and will be presented at community and university events and on an interactive project website.
