In Attire
Relationship: Child of im/migrant

I am a second generation citizen and a child of an immigrant. One item that resonates with me as the son of a Latin-Colombian immigrant, is the grey woolen shawl my father wears sometimes when it's a chilly day. Sometimes when we take long walks, my sister who is 3 years younger, and I walk with him and his shawl. He rarely wears the shawl, but when he does I'm always reminded of our Colombian heritage. My father brought it from Colombia in 1996. He wears it less and less, but I am reminded of our fading cultural heritage. I will never forget.

Place(s): Colombia
Year: 1996
