How did we get here? I mean, physically, here in Kansas City. Some of us were born here, others moved from different cities, but some of us traveled here from a different country all together.

This is the second episode of an on-going series here at Paris of the Plains we’re calling How We Got Here: Stories of Immigration. Each episode features someone telling their story of immigration or a story about how immigration has changed their life. These narratives show how the people that call this place home came to be in the Paris of the Plains.

Songs used in this episode: Lemon and Melon, Tralaga, One Needle, Set The Tip Jar and Home Home At Last by Blue Dot Sessions and they have been adapted.
