WHAT THIS IS?
The Vietnamese in the Diaspora Digital Archive is a collection of open-access primary sources and educational resources that provide insight and enhance research into a broad range of experiences across the Vietnamese global diaspora.
The current collection consists of video and audio recordings and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted by The Vietnamese American Heritage Foundation between 2008 and 2014.
WHO WE ARE
ViDDA is a project of The Vietnamese American Heritage Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and celebration of the history and heritage of Vietnamese Americans, founded in 2004.
Since 2004, VAHF has gifted over 300,000 photographs and refugee processing documents to the Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University, and produced two award-winning documentary films, Master Hoa’s Requiem (2015) and Vietnamerica (2016). VAHF began this online resources project, the Vietnamese in the Diaspora Digital Archive (ViDDA), in 2017.
