Item consists of a Japanese-Canadian family's home movie. Donor(s) and project contributed description follows: "On this Christmas morning (1968), the children can be seen opening their gifts. Akemi remembers the suitcase they all were gifted that Christmas as they were used in the following year during their family’s first trip to Disneyland. The children are gathered around the fireplace with their cousin looking up the chimney to find Santa. The footage ends on a winter afternoon with the children playing in the snow. Helped by their father, the children make a giant snowman with all the classic feature. Adorning a hat borrowed from their father, the snowman is completed with his very own carrot nose. For Akemi these videos were a "reminder of her family and how much they had despite not being wealthy… how much her parents wanted them to be Canadian"."
Item consists of a Japanese-Canadian family's home movie. Donor(s) and project contributed description follows: "In the neighbourhood parade, children can be seen walking down a residential street in outfits for their own Centennial celebration in 1967. Her father along with one of the other parents in the neighbourhood organized this event for the children. Pushed by his sister in his makeshift float is Steven dressed as John A. MacDonald. Naomi is dressed as a pioneer homesteader and Akemi is dressed in a Kimono. Some children can be seen wearing outfits from their various cultural backgrounds. While the Eddy children were the only Asian children on their street, Akemi didn’t grow up feeling out of place in her community."
