Hometown Desi

South Asian Culture in the Pacific Northwest
Ongoing
 
South Asian immigration to the Pacific Northwest stretches back more than a century and includes a huge range of cultural and religious groups, economic circumstances, and community experiences:  from Sikh mill workers driven out of Bellingham in 1907, to UW graduate students arriving from India and Pakistan in the 1960s, to Bhutanese refugees settling in Burien today. Hometown Desi explores the traditions and values people have brought from South Asia, how those traditions have evolved in the U.S., and the way younger generations are weaving their cultural heritage into new identities as South Asian Americans.
