Gonzalez, Norma Buenostro (audio interview and summary)

Description

Self-recorded interview by Norma Buenrostro Gonzalez, May 18, 2016. Norma’s parents are originally from Michoacán, Mexico. Her family came to the United States in 1999, and she grew up in Holland, Michigan. Later, Norma and her older sister moved to Oceana County to live with their aunt and uncle, who own a Mexican store named La Probadita in downtown Hart. As Norma’s family never worked as migrants or pickers while she grew up, she was astonished by how big the agricultural business was in Hart. Norma has spent time volunteering with the Hart Main Street Program, the Oceana Hispanic Center, and her church. She hopes to see more positive relationships built between farmers and workers in the future.

Gonzalez, Norma Buenostro (entrevista de audio y resumen)

Descripción

Entrevista autograbada por Norma Gonzalez Buenrostro, Mayo 18, 2016. Los padres de Norma son de Michoacán, México. Su familia vino a los Estados Unidos en 1999, y ella creció en Holland, Michigan. Luego, Norma y su hermana mayor se mudaron al condado de Oceana para vivir con su tía y tío, quienes tienen una tienda llamada La Probadita que está ubicada en el centro de Hart. Como la familia de Norma nunca trabajó como trabajadores migrantes mientras crecía, le asombró aprender de la enormidad de la agricultura en Hart. Norma ha sido voluntaria para Hart Main Street Program, el Centro Hispano de Oceana, y su iglesia. Espera que se desarrollen más relaciones positivas entre los agricultores y los trabajadores en el futuro.
