Multi Culti at Huron

Huron High School’s Multi Culti is an incredible event that brings together students, parents, and the community to celebrate diversity and culture. The event has been going on ever since 1984. 

Multi Culti is organized by students and the school’s administration, with students from various clubs and organizations coming together to plan, organize, and execute the event. The students put in a lot of effort and worked tirelessly to make the event bigger and better each year. 

There’s a lot of work that goes into Multi-Culti that might not be apparent from the outside.” Maya Fu, the runner of Multiculti says.” We have to design flyers, host tryouts, arrange and attend rehearsals, and put together the logistics of the show itself. On top of that, of course, communicating with all the performers takes time as well. There’s also a ton of work that goes into the technical side of putting together such a big show, like programming different lighting changes and all the music for each act.” All the credit for things of that sort goes to Liliana Franzese, who is the other Student Director. I would say that being willing to put in a lot of time and effort is what makes directing Multi Culti possible. 

The event includes performances from various groups like Drumline, Colorguard, ASU (African Student Union), APEX, Dance Society, LSU (Latino Student Union), BSU (Black Student Union), and ISA (Indian Student Union). The performances are a mix of traditional dances that are all entertaining to watch. In the evening there is a performance for family and during the day there is a performance for students. 

“The only expectation I have for each year’s Multi Culti is for it to be better than the last,” Fu said. “I was also the director of last year’s Multi Culti, which was the first one since the beginning of the pandemic. I had never even heard of Multi Culti before (and neither had most of the school), so I would say that it was pretty difficult getting it off the ground I was proud of the final product, but this year’s Multi Culti completely exceeded all my expectations, and I couldn’t be happier! It was a lot more complex than last year in terms of moving parts and lighting, and it was incredible being able to watch it develop through the rehearsal process.”

The event is a great way to learn about different cultures and celebrate diversity in a fun, safe, and inclusive environment. It’s also an opportunity for students to showcase their talents and traditions, as well as build new friendships and connections across different groups. 

10th Grader Ahbi Velivela is a dancer for the Indian Student Association (ISA).

Originally, I was anxious,” Velvela said. I was never good at dancing and thought I’d be embarrassing myself. But, after ISA’s rigorous practices, I was able to get the steps down while having fun with my friends. Overall, when I got on the stage I would say I felt confident and excited overall, I think I speak for the club when I say we did quite well and represented true Indian culture in a fun and exciting way to the audience. Personally, I’d say my favorite dance would have to be from the Huron Dance Society or ISA’s Boys Dance.”

Huron High School’s Multi Culti is an amazing event that celebrates diversity, culture, and community. It’s a testament to the school’s commitment to inclusivity and the student’s creativity and talent.Make sure to attend Multi Culti next year.
