Are you curious about issues of identity? Do you like to hear new and intriguing stories? Come to the Nikkei National Museum and sit down with a Human Hapa Book for a one-on-one informal conversation to explore hapa identity. Hapa is a person with mixed race heritage with partial roots in Asian and/or Pacific Islander ancestry. You are guaranteed to be inspired and learn something new.

This human library is organized in conjunction with the Kip Fulbeck: part Asian, 100% hapa exhibition now showing at the Nikkei National Museum until January 4, 2015. We invite everyone to participate, but especially hap a of all mixes, parents raising hapa children, and youth exploring their own identity. We also encourage anyone not familiar with the term hapa to take out a Book to learn how mixed race people identify themselves. Confirmed book titles at the moment are

  • Japanese Canadian Young Leader: Discovering Heritage, Community and Identity
  • An Older Hapa, Editor and Taiko Player
  • Youth Engagement & Japanese Canadian Community Development

See website on how to take out a Book.
