The Idaho State Museum has long celebrated diverse cultures and the telling of stories from multiple voices. After witnessing the positive impact from our relaunch of Día de Muertos and how celebrating Idaho’s diverse cultures affects the community at large we were inspired to add deeper and inclusive programing to our portfolio. We are proud to host the virtual panel discussion Nuestras Voces, or “Our Voices,” a new complimentary state-wide virtual program in Spanish. In this monthly 30-minute presentation, panelists discuss a variety of topics from past to present within Idaho. This unique opportunity offers Idaho’s Spanish-speaking community a new platform at the Museum to discuss contemporary challenges, historical perspectives, and light-hearted stories from Idaho’s rich Hispanic history and community.

For this discussion with the Nuestras Voces team, panelists Maria Ortega (Visitor Services Representative, Idaho State Museum), Emily Chivers (Curator of Education, Idaho State Museum) and JJ Saldana (Community Resource Development Specialist, Idaho Commission of Hispanic Affairs) come together to share more about this new program, the community it is serving, the Idaho State Museum’s commitment to diverse voices, and the impact it aims to provide.

You can participate in the conversation through the audience Q&A by emailing questions to [email protected] or submitting them live during the event in the chat bar. While Nuestras Voces is presented in Spanish, this History Happy Hour will be presented in English.
