What’s happening to all the Welsh societies in America??
Promoting Wales in the USA
I hope this is the right place to send my opinion. I was with a Welsh Group in Santa Barbara for nearly ten
years. It was started by a lady from North Wales whose first language was Welsh. It seemed to those North
Walians that was all that was important. When this lady left the group and I took over the program planning,
one of my ideas was to present all of the areas where Welsh people have excelled. For an example, those
North people never talked about the Welsh National Opera and it's productions. They wanted nothing to do with dance, gave no hint as to how to pronounce Welsh words, they were happy to talk among themselves and to add how "pure" was N. Wales because they spoke Welsh. In other words no warm welcome was given to newcomers. We cannot be that this in this multiculture country. I would appreciate
some reply from you and your opinion....................................Shanne Cano
