APEX Contributor Ellen Choy sits down with three API holistic healers who practice different non-Western, holistic modalities of healing. We discuss what it means to be a holistic ‘healer,’ what it means to be an Asian healer in the U.S. context, why communities lack access to holistic healing. Lastly, the holistic healers share resources on how to access their and others’ practices.
For the second half of our show, we’ll air a segment produced by APEX Contributor Robynn Takayama, a.k.a. Nonogirl. She interviews Marissa Aroy about her new documentary Delano Manongs which covers the story of Larry Itliong and the Filipino farm workers who joined arms in the ’60s with their Chicano comrades to build the United Farm Workers. As we celebrate Cesar Chavez this week with the debut of the new film about him and the Chicano farmworkers, we’re highlighting Delano Manongs to celebrate the story of the Filipino farmworkers and activists who were also a key part of that history.
