‘Walk of Remembrance’ honors Chinese settlers

The 2018 Walk of Remembrance, a walk honoring the lives of early Chinese-American settlers, is slated to take place Saturday afternoon at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History in Pacific Grove.

The Monterey Bay Lion Dance Team will lead the walk, beginning at 1 p.m. at the museum at 154 Forest Ave. and proceeding to Lovers Point, then along a bike trail to a village where a Chinese fishing village once stood.

Pacific Grove Mayor Pro Tem Robert Huitt and Gerry Low-Sabado, a fifth-generation descendant of people who lived at the fishing village, will take part. Low-Sabado will speak about her quest to tell her ancestors’ Chinese-American story, and there will be a question and answer session.

Visitors to the museum can also visit an exhibit that tells the story of the Chinese fishing village.
