158: "I'm never not going to be Filipina. So what's the rush? I have the rest of my life to study my heritage." Rooted and Rising: Migrating to America with Jen and Nani

For Part 1 of 3 of the Rooted and Rising Series: Migrating to America, Jen Amos and Nani Dominguez-Smith explore the seven waves of Filipino migration, from the first wave of seafarers, slaves and shipbuilders to the modern diaspora. They also share stories of guests from The Filipino American Woman Project, discussing their personal family histories and connections to Filipino migration. During their conversation, they also touch on the impact of historical events on Filipino migration and encourage listeners to reflect on their family history and ways of preserving their cultural identity.
