- Ang Buhay sa Nayon - Life in the Valley Oral History Project, 2014-2015 is an oral history project partnership between James Madison University and the Filipino American Community of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. This project is also Hannah Moses' thesis project for her Master's in Local, Public, and Regional History from JMU. The website for her digital thesis project can be found here: http://sites.jmu.edu/lifeinthevalley/. Moses began recruiting interviewees at the Harrisonburg, Virginia International Festival on September 27, 2014 and the interviews were completed in the Fall of 2014. For this project, fifteen Philippine-born Filipino Americans and two US-born Filipino Americans shared their life stories in a total of twenty-three interviews. Luz M. de Tablan, the founder of the Filipino American Community in the Shenandoah Valley, worked with Moses to interview Filipino individuals for the oral history project. As of 2015, there are 1,110 Filipino Americans living in the Shenandoah Valley with the majority residing in the northern counties. Those who volunteered for the project live primarily in the southern portion of the Shenandoah Valley. This collection contains the stories of those who came to the United States between 1963 and 2010 and sheds light on the rural immigrant experience. The collection was officially opened to the public at a reception honoring the interviewees on April 25, 2015.
