A piece of this interview aired on KCRW’s Morning Edition on Jan. 30.
When Susana Zamora came to the U.S., everything was new to her. The streets, the people and especially the culture.
“ It’s hard to explain Easter with the bunny and eggs — we know bunnies don’t lay eggs!” she says.
She brought her two daughters, Neidi and Victoria, when they were young. And as a mom, she wanted her daughters to learn U.S. customs — you know, like egg hunting, Christmas songs and celebrating July 4th. At the same time, Susana wanted to introduce them to Mexican traditions.
She explains it as “cultural rescue.” Hear more below.
This interview in Spanish was recorded at CARECEN Los Angeles.
