Our inspiring contributors all champion the preservation of heritage through different ideas, processes and skills, both personally and professionally. In each episode, we ask a set of simple questions: Who, what, why, where, when and how does your heritage inform your actions? With the spotlight on one contributor per episode, Seen By Me in the USA is a celebration of diversity and imagination, and will include hashtags to maximize social media and to invite student engagement.

#MyFood explores a traditional, celebratory, or spiritual dish.
#MyArt explores dance, music, visual or performance art.
#MyCraft explores handmade creations.
#MyCulture explores ceremonies, rites, rituals, and traditions.
