Shasta County is one of the whitest counties in California. 

But there are certainly pockets of diversity, including the presence of a Mien community with Asian roots. 

A celebration of the Mien community's acceptance began a dozen years ago in Lake Shasta, at the Multi-Cultural Celebration

It returns again this weekend (Saturday 11-3) to Central Valley High School.We get a preview from the facilitators.
