This chapter examines the work of cultural preservation by Tibetans in Santa Fe and the fulfillment of their ambassadorial role. It highlights new forms of Tibetanness that are emerging as the diaspora expands and a new generation of Tibetan youth comes of age. Focusing from the time period after family reunification, it discusses parental concerns that arose after the arrival of spouses and children, and the shift to cultural preservation and education. Interviews with Tibetan youth reveal complex expressions of emergent Tibetan American identity.

Keywords:   Tibetan diaspora, cultural preservation, Tibetan education, Tibetan American identity, family reunification
