Si, there are Latinos in Alaska!
My name is Indra Arriaga Delgado. I’m a Mexican multidisciplinary artist living and working in Alaska. In 2019 I was very fortunate to be awarded a grant from Latino Public Broadcasting(LPB)/PBS to make a short (20 min) documentary called “Sabor Ártico: Latinos en Alaska” (Arctic Flavor: Latinos in Alaska). Latinos have contributed to the cultural, social, and economic development of Alaska for a very long time. Sabor Ártico provides a unique and important opportunity for community members to speak about their experiences in Alaska and how their food and culture is being redefined. This project is important to me personally and professionally because it allows me to bring a part of the community and Alaska to national audiences via the LPB/PBS platform.
