Who Is Your Neighbor? Series: Somali Culture
Somalis are not new to the United States. The first Somalis to arrive on U.S. soil were sailors. In the 60s and 70s the majority of Somalis were students. But in the mid to late 90s the number of Somalis exploded as civil war devastated their homeland. Presently, between 100,000 and 150,000 Somalis call the U.S. home, and there are approximately 3,000-4,000 Somalis in Northeast Wisconsin.
Come learn about the history, culture, and religious beliefs of the Somali people as we build relationships with our neighbors in Northeast Wisconsin.
