Members of the Sikh Student Association stepped up to teach the technique of tying turbans during a special Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month event April 22 on Library Mall. The event was held to raise awareness about Sikh identity and culture. Sikhs wear the turban as an expression of their faith and their commitment to serve humanity.
