Presenter and Dutch Native, Sander Hoekstra sent further information after his class on Thursday, April 17.
Sander notes that he will have to ask people in the Netherlands about the influence of Spain on Dutch culture. He cannot find anything when he googles this, so it must have been small. However, the influence of Napoleon was big, e.g. he introduced the metric system and laws. Sander also recommended the PORTLAND DUTCH KONINGSDAG 2014 which is Sunday, April 27 from 3:30-6:30 pm in Portland, Oregon.
