Tibetan Canadian steppe children

The journal Foreign Policy recently ran an excellent article about issues facing Tibetan children of interracial marriages. Some of the people and stories covered in the article are from Canada, where we have a sizeable Tibetan Canadian community, and a significant number of Tibetan Canadian steppe children.

The pull-quote from the article reads:

After more than 50 years in exile, Tibetans are grappling with a new wave of diaspora no longer content to remain in South Asia. But can those coming of age in the West help preserve a culture under siege?

I would be very interested in hearing more details about the lives and challenges of young Tibetan and “half-Tibetan” Canadians and in publishing a book of their stories. So if you think you might be the person to make that happen, drop me a line!
