Cambodian Wedding in Maine

Year 1994

Creator Carole Lynne Hoffman



County Cumberland


The Cambodian community in Portland makes up a very small percentage of population, and as Carole Hoffman discovers, struggles to find jobs, learn English, and preserve their own culture. As a guest, Hoffman experiences a traditional Cambodian wedding, highlighting how the Cambodian community uses this as a way to ensure their culture is preserved away from home.
