May is API Heritage Month

Once again, CISC is a proud sponsor of the Asian Pacific Directors Coalition's Asian Pacific Heritage Month Celebration which was held at Seattle Center yesterday. As chair of the APDC, CISC Executive Director welcomed the crowd and kicked off the event.

Highlighting the great diversity within the API community, this event, now in its sixth year, featured back to back performances from community groups such as the Northern Laotian Community Association, Filipino Youth Activities Drill Team, Apna Bangre Crew, and many, many more!

The API themed art contest for middle and high school students received over 60 entries this year and top entries were on display for the public to enjoy.

One of the highlights of the day was a performance by the grÖÖvaholix, an all female, Asian American dance troupe out of LA. For their latest videos, go to YouTube and search on keyword: groovaholix
