From Immigrants to Citizens: Asian Pacific Americans in the Northwest

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two school teachers to explore the histories and cultures of Asian immigrants in the Pacific Northwest and their significance to the nation.

The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience will conduct two week-long workshops in summer 2016 to examine the experience of early Native Hawaiian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, and Asian Indian American immigrants, and their vast labor and sociocultural contributions to the developing and transforming Pacific Northwest, American West and the United States overall. Led by national scholars of Asian American history and immigration, workshop participants will immerse in unknown yet highly remarkable historic sites and living cultural communities supplemented with archival documents, academic readings, lectures and discussions.
