"To me, my Khmer identity is a representation of all the hardship our parents had to go through to insure that their children could have a better life. But today, despite Cambodians being spread out everywhere, finding another Khmer person is almost like finding a long lost family member; you instantly feel a connection with them because of the similar histories your families share. Due to the fact that there are so few Cambodians, it makes it even more important that we put an effort to preserve our culture and our traditions."

And that is the end of Khmer of OSU. It was inspiring to hear all your stories of identity, struggle, and kinship. I hope all of you learned more about the Khmer people, and are more appreciative of the beautiful complexity and variety of Asian American culture and history.

"Growing up, I never saw a lot of people who looked like me unless it was at family gatherings. I only saw myself as just Asian because I didn’t really acknowledge that being Khmer meant we have a rich culture that is unique and that sets us apart from our neighboring Southeast Asian countries. As I got older, I wanted to be identified as Khmer and Lao, because I believe that being immersed in your own culture and sharing it with people who may not be familiar with it can help preserve and accept different cultures as a whole. My family has worked hard to get me where I’m at today and the only way to repay them is to provide for them just how they provided me the opportunity to grow up in America, give me an education, etc. I hope the Khmer culture will continue to thrive for generations to come."

"To me, being Khmer means practicing my culture alongside my family and sharing it with those around me. Growing up in a multicultural family instilled in me the value of treasuring culture and sharing it with others. The first thing I always do when I have friends over is offer them some of my grandmothers cooking. I love seeing their first bite reactions because no matter how weird or different the food might seem to them, they always end up enjoying it. Sharing little pieces of my culture with my friends like this makes me feel proud to be Khmer."

"I was born and raised by immigrant parents who survived the Cambodian Genocide and so being Khmer means everything to me. As a first-generation Cambodian American I've been blessed enough to experience the beauty of the culture, history, and language in which I will continue to pass down to my future children one day. My family has always told me about the pain and torture of surviving a war that killed off between 13 - 30% of the population. I've been blessed enough to become a product of those who survived and continue to live with a chip on my shoulder to give back to my people."

Once a year we celebrate Khmer New Years by going to the temple and its a great chance to meet other Cambodians and eat great food!"

01/29/2020

"Khmer identity to me is like a treasure. It’s rare and valuable, rich with culture. Of course, after many families migrated to America after the tragic genocide, our traditions become less and less practiced. Little is known about our people nowadays, so over the years I’ve been slowly collecting facts about Khmer traditions and holidays. It seems like I’m always trying to learn more about who I am and what my people do — as if I’m on some sort of lost treasure hunt. I guess you could say that I’ve now found something, or rather someone. Recently I’ve been getting to know this Cambodian person more and it turns out we share a lot in common. We’ve talked about how loud our family gatherings are and how sometimes our parties involve karaoke. We also have been going to the same temple throughout our childhood but never knew each other until we came to OSU! Next April, we’re actually planning to celebrate the upcoming New Years together at this very temple and I’m really looking forward to that. Because we’re both Khmer, it’s rare we get to have these types of experiences with someone outside of our family...it’s rare that we can share this precious and hidden thing known as Khmer culture."

"I am the product of resilient Cambodian genocide survivors. But what does it mean to be Khmer if you didn't have to live through the consequences of trauma, of pain? My understanding was just as limited until [email protected]. To acknowledge the experiences and to relearn our history is to know ourselves. My Khmer identity has never been more affirmed knowing that I am part of the generational representation of great strength and pride after war and anguish. My Khmer identity means taking a transformative, interactional stance to illuminate the voices that brought me here today."

The APCC wishes you a happy Lunar New Year! Fun fact: in Cambodia, Lunar New Year is known as "បុណ្យចូលឆ្នាំថ្មី" (Chaul Chnam Thmey), which literally translates to "Enter New Year". It is celebrated at the end of the harvesting season, which falls on April 14 - 16.
.
"When I think about my Khmer identity, I think of the beautiful culture that I grew up with — the visits to temples, eating delicious food, and meeting people with similar backgrounds as me. But I also think about the history of the Khmer Rouge and what my parents went through to survive. The sacrifices and hardships they experienced and the willpower they've displayed to be where they are now, have always been reminders for me to never give up on my own path. My Khmer identity is the strength that keeps me moving forward."

"Growing up, it was rare to run into any other Cambodians, so I think it’s always really special when I do come across someone that shares the same culture or stories about the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer identity quickly connects us. When my family tells stories about the war, I honestly always think it should be written in a book and shared. It’s always so inspiring."
