Indus Heritage Day is tomorrow!

We are excited to announce our first public event:  Indus Heritage Day.  Admission is free! In the San Francisco bay area we are teaming up with the India Community Center and Pakistani American Culture Center to bring you a free event that celebrates shared South Asian histories.  It is our goal to pique the public's curiosity and interest in South Asian history to foster preservation in the future.  For this first year, our theme will be the Indus Valley civilization.  We have an exciting day full of children's activities, film screening, dance, food, music and keynote lecture by a renowned Indus Valley archeologist.  If you reside in the San Francisco area, we look forward to meeting you there!

Join us in a rare Silicon Valley debut
