Conozca Su Canal

VFOA has teamed up the Society of Friends of the West Indian Museum of Panama (SAMAAP) to coordinate aspects of the "Conozca Su Canal" (Know Your Canal) event. In one year, public and private schools in Panama competed to determine which schools' students knew more about their West Indian heritage and the contributions of West Indian descent to Panama's history, society, and culture. In another year, thanks to support provided by a grant through the Vanderbilt Undergraduate Summer Research Program, Sebastian LaSaosa Rodgers produced a “Conozca Su Canal” film for SAMAAP.
