Program Title: RVF 2016-2017 Week 14 Dec 05 to 11 2016
Description: Francophone presence in the Niagara Region has a long history and continues to vibrate. In the nineteenth century Francophones settled in the city of Welland to help with the construction of the canal. Francophones from Quebec were later recruited for employment in the local cotton mill.. Today new francophone immigrants, mostly from Africa, bring their cultures and voices to Niagara. In this episode we hear from five francophone women who are actively engaged in cultural venues in the area. First we hear from Lucie Huot, whose family came from Quebec. Next we are introduced to Fété Ngira-Batware Kimpiobi and Nafée Faigou, both from the Association of Francophone Immigrant Women of NIagara (SOFIFRAN). Fété and Nafée speak about their immigration to Canada, what they have left in their native countries and what they like in Niagara. Our next guest is Rachel Hélène Amran, an artist from Montréal who shares her efforts for a successful integration as a francophone artist. Next we meet Clamenç Prades, who relates her experience when she arrived from Austria about ten years ago and decided to go all French.
