Cultural Heritage

Most ethnic and cultural communities are seeing it happen. Many of the people who have direct experience with events, formations of groups, key people and so on are aging or have passed on.

The memories and artifacts need to be captured and preserved or they could be lost forever.

In Cleveland, the Asian Indian Heritage Project is working to collect and preserve these memories and artifacts.

On a broader scale, the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) is working on this nationally.

The Asian Indian community in Cleveland recently hosted the president of SAADA, Samip Mallick, who explained some of the archive processes.

It's something that every group should consider.
