KCTV celebrates Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander month

There’s a saying in Vietnamese, “Uống nước nhớ nguồn” that translates to “when you drink from a river, remember its origins.” Throughout the month of May, KCTV will feature local AANHPI leaders each week to see how their past is connected to the present.

This week features Rachel Yang, a Korean-American chef and James Beard nominee that co-owns the Relay Restaurant Group, which includes the popular Joule and Revel restaurants. You can see the YouTube video here and Facebook video here.

Watch for upcoming features including artist Erin Shigaki, writer and UW Professor Shawn Wong, and UW Professor Raissa DeSmet and students from the Southeast Asian Pasts and Futures (SEAPF) program. There will also be a live online viewing event at the end of May where we will be watching all of the features together — details coming soon.
