Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian Pacific Americans, a term that encompasses many ethnic groups, worked tirelessly to build a national railroad infrastructure, paving the way for western expansion. The first Asian Pacific Heritage Week was celebrated in 1979, in response to little or no recognition of this population in the 1976 bicentennial celebrations. By 1990, the celebration was a month long and then made official in 1992. For more information, visit https://asianpacificheritage.gov/ and the WA State Commission for Asian Pacific American Affairs https://capaa.wa.gov/. Asian Pacific Islander Coalition (APIC) Spokane’s theme is Healing is Resistance: Reclaiming Mental Health for Collective Liberation (https://www.apicspokane.org/).

Jewish American Heritage Month

In 2006, President George W. Bush designated May as the month to teach about Jewish history and culture and to recognize the important contributions of Jewish Americans to U.S. history. For more information visit https://www.jewishheritagemonth.gov. In addition, visit the Washington State Jewish Historical Society at http://www.wsjhs.org/ for information about Jewish people in WA State.

Older American’s Month – USA

It was established by Presidential Proclamation in 1963. The entire nation is encouraged to pay tribute in some way to older persons in their communities. It is celebrated across the country through ceremonies and events.

  • Plateau Pictorial Beadwork: The Fred L. Mitchell Collection Glass beads were first traded into the interior Pacific Northwest during the late 18th century, after coastal peoples  acquired them from seagoing fur traders. In their 1805 exploration of the region, Lewis and Clark observed that  some garments were adorned with these beads, along with shells, shell beads, pieces of bone, cut brass, and other items. For the half-century that followed, the majority of glass beads that were available to the residents of the Columbia  River Plateau came from the Hudson’s Bay Company and were primarily blue and white beads with limited  amounts of other colors. The arrival of increasing quantities and colors of seed beads encouraged the creation of a regional style of  decoration that adorned clothing, personal accessories, and horse gear. The earliest examples of Plateau pictorial  beadwork show floral designs and horse imagery. Other early subjects included deer, elk, and birds. These motifs  were generally simply arranged on a light-colored—often white or blue—background. Later beadwork subjects  included diverse wildlife species, Indigenous people and their daily lives, and rodeo and patriotic themes. During a lifetime collecting Plateau floral, geometric, and pictorial beadwork, Walla Walla resident Fred L. Mitchell  has amassed the premier collection of this material. His collection has become noteworthy, due not just to its size,  but also because of its quality and diverse subject matter. The MAC is proud to present this survey of Plateau  beadwork, which will include stunning beaded bags, cuffs, gauntlets, vests, cradleboards, and horse regalia.

  • 폭발 후: 40년 후 세인트 헬렌스 산
    1980년 5월 18일, 세계는 세인트 헬렌산이 분화하여 57명이 사망하고 수백 평방 마일의 파괴가 발생하는 것을 경외하는 눈으로 지켜보았습니다. 모두가 생명이 산으로 돌아가려면 오랜 시간이 걸릴 거라고 생각했지만 얼마 지나지 않아 방문한 과학자들은 화산재 사이로 식물이 돋아나고 쓰러진 나무 주위를 뒹굴고 있는 동물을 보고 기절했습니다.
    생태학자들은 이후 수십 년 동안 겉보기에 완전한 황폐화에 직면한 삶의 회복력을 연구해 왔습니다. 그들의 작업을 통해 세인트 헬렌스 산의 분화는 태평양 북서부 역사에서 가장 위대한 자연 실험으로 알려지게 되었습니다. 이 강연에서 에릭 와그너(Eric Wagner)는 폭발 지역으로의 여행을 안내합니다. 그는 폭발 후 40년이 지난 지금도 세인트 헬렌 산이 얼마나 매혹적인지를 보여주면서 식물과 동물이 폭발에서 살아남은 놀라운 방법뿐만 아니라 사람들이 수행한 복잡한 역할을 탐구합니다.
    Eric Wagner (he/him) is a writer and biologist. He holds a PhD in biology from the University of Washington, where he studied penguins. He is the author of three books, including After the Blast: The Ecological Recovery of Mount St. Helens. Wagner lives in Seattle.  Sponsored by Humanities Washington, https://www.humanities.org/.

  • Double Crossed: The American Missionary Spies of World War II
    What made a good missionary also made a good spy, or so thought American intelligence agencies in World War II. These religious men and women carried out covert operations, bombings, and assassinations—confident that their nefarious deeds would eventually help them achieve their mission by expanding the kingdom of God.
    Historian Matthew Avery Sutton tells the extraordinary story of these missionaries, priests, and rabbis who played an outsized role in leading the United States to victory in World War II. This talk is an untold story of wartime spy craft and a profound account of the compromises and doubts that war forces on those who wage it.
    Matthew Avery Sutton (he/him) is the Berry Family Distinguished Professor in Liberal Arts and the chair of the Department of History at Washington State University. He has authored several books, the most recent of which is Double Crossed: The Missionaries Who Spied for the United States During the Second World War (2019). Sutton lives in Pullman. Sponsored by Humanities Washington, https://www.humanities.org/. Hosted by South Hill Library.

  • Drag Culture: Beyond Entertainment
    Typically held at bars and nightclubs, drag is a form of entertainment in which a performer uses clothing and makeup to impersonate a particular gender identity, usually of the opposite sex. Yet drag is so much more than nightclub entertainment—it provides community, instills self-confidence, and can even save lives.
    Join drag king performer Ceasar Hart and explore the history of drag culture and why it is so important for many in the LGBTQ+ community. Discover the impact of this art form, and how it can be used not only to raise awareness and advocate for LGBTQ+ acceptance, but also as a powerful vehicle for individual self-expression.
    Ceasar Hart (he/him) has been a drag king performer in the Pacific Northwest for over a decade. He has produced his own drag shows in Grays Harbor and co-hosted stages for both Seattle Pride and Seattle PrideFest. Hart lives in Grays Harbor. Sponsored by Humanities Washington, https://www.humanities.org/. Hosted by FVR Libraries.

  • Rage Courage: Japanese American Soldiers in WWII
    Speaker Lauren Harris grew up in a military family and has visited most of the United States, studying history along the way. After Pearl Harbor, thousands of young Japanese American men and women joined the war effort, giving all to prove loyalty to a country holding their families behind barbed wire. The brave soldiers of the all-Japanese American 100th/442nd unit of World War II persevered through extreme and unusual hardship, handing down a deep heritage of unwavering patriotism to future generations. Lauren R. Harris, author of two books for children about the 100th/44nd RCT, will share veterans’ first-hand experiences through photos and discussion of their courageous legacy, including some lesser-known Spokane connections.
