33rd Festival
I was able to go to the New York's Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Festival. It is the nation's longest running festival celebrating Asian diversity and participation in community events. It is presented in collaboration with 120+ community organizations and representatives from eight countries. It is the nation's most prestigious such event and dedicated to celebrating Asian American & Pacific Islander identity.
I was able to join this celebration that has lasted over three decades.

it was the 34Th New York's Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Festival on Saturday May 18Th, 2013. The festival included:

-Martial Arts and Dance Demonstrations
-Ethnic Cuisine
-Artisan Demonstrations
-Media Center for journalists and reporters
-Community Outreach and Support
-Main stage performances
Bubble tea or Boba tea was made in the 1980s, the first bubble tea was from Taiwan. the name was different though because originally they used white tapioca ball that was why they called the drink pearl tea. Now often they use black jelly tapioca instead of the white (pearls).
Since then Bubble tea has become popular in Australia, the USA, Canada and Europe.
Asian food in America has been changed to suite the taste of Americans. like bubbly tea its not a transitional tea ,but it has been changed and advertised as a cool drink for the younger generations.
Ellis island now covers a rage of 27.5 acre. The site is located just a few minutes off Manhattan ( long island) and liberty island. it has been estimated that nearly half of all americans today can trace their family history to at least one person who passed through the port of new york at Ellis island. It has been nearly a century since Ellis island was in use and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in service.
each year more that 3 million visitors from around the world walk through Ellis island.
Ellis island was in use for immigration from 1892 to 1954. in that time period more than 12 million people have past though the great halls of the immigration offices.
Another chinese cuisine is duck. before the duck is killed it is forced fed so that they are plump, and before they are served they are coated in honey, water and vinegar then roasted in a wood fired oven.
The first immigrant to pass through Ellis Island was Annie Moore, a 15 year old girl from Cork, Ireland.
She and her two brothers were coming to America to meet their parents, who had moved to New York two years prior. She received a greeting from officials and a $10 gold piece.
It was the largest amount of money she had ever owned.

The last person to pass through Ellis Island was a Norwegian merchant seaman by the name of Anne Peterssen in 1954.
more then 3 million people from all over the world came on boats to live a better life in America.

Ellis island was one of the first immigration offices of its time.
Ellis island has many names for the people who were able to go into the country of freedom they usually call it the island of hope.
Many people think it is called the island of tears because people cried when they first saw the sight of the island but it is originally called the island of tears because of the individuals that were denied and the family's separated when they to the country.
Ellis island medical inspection
To support the activities of the United States Bureau of Immigration, the United States Public Health Service operated an extensive medical service at the immigrant station. It was the largest marine hospital in the nation. The medical division, which was active both in the hospital and the Great Hall, was staffed by uniformed military surgeons. They are best known for the role they played during the line inspection. they examined for signs of eye diseases (particularly, trachoma) and the use of a chalk mark code. Symbols were chalked on the clothing of potentially sick immigrants following the six-second medical examination. The doctors would look at the immigrants climbing the stairs. Immigrants' behavior would be studied for difficulties in getting up the staircase. Some immigrants entered the country only by surreptitiously wiping the chalk marks off, or by turning their clothes inside out.
sickness they could have were:
typhoid fever
small pox
mad cow disease
scarlet fever
immigrant children
