PreviousA Mulher nos Acores e nas Comunidades/Women in the Azores and the Immigrant Communities: Volume IV
Date: Oct 14, 2016
Written by Michael Giles & Mario Silva
In their book, Mario Silva and Michael Giles have shown that we did more than just assimilate and integrate the culture of these new immigrants. We accepted and encouraged their culture with the freedom to practice it, foster its creativity and produce it in their newfound home with music, dance, drama, literature and visual arts. Bu doing this, Canadians brought these newcomers close within the community, relieving their anxieties and homesickness and helping them adjust to this new environment.
