Gathering Historias, an initiative of the Arnold Arboretum, envisions an outdoor landscape that fully includes and connects the stories of our expanding Latino communities. Developed by Steven Fisher, a master’s degree candidate at the Harvard Divinity School, this project recognizes that the diverse voices of Latino communities can contribute to our cultural narratives of the environment.
In this recording we hear from Wendy Estrada who has lived throughout Latin America. Now living in Brookline, Mass., with her family, Wendy remembers some of her favorite sounds she experienced in her former home in Panama City.
