First two lines encapsulates Irish/American immigrant experience and we wonder how many generations it took to "feel American". John, did you feel Irish? American? Both? or somewhere in between.

As read by Ms Oliver and Ms Ferenz
Yellow Woman
Genevieve Lim-Jue
I am the daughter of seafarers, gold miners, quartz miners, railroad miners, farmworkers, garment workers, factory workers, restaurant, workers, laundrymen, houseboys, scholars, poets, dreamers . . .
I have seen my father’s destiny crushed, by the weight of his immigrant dreams silently staring a heap of yellow misery inextricably tangled amongst the sweating, huddled flesh of Utopia.

My grandma Memo...a Native American... was different we lived close so I saw her a lot.Her mother was GamuchusHad a lot of Indian stories. My dad was the generation before and hid his Indianness. I learned Indian words, but I only remember the bad ones. Their perception of religion was different, had Christianity but still had old beliefs about God represented in nature.
Dad is from Ireland. They sang a lot. The relatives taught the children how to dance and waltz. It seemed unusual that others didn't have the experience with dancing, so now Linda dances mostly at family gatherings.
