Learn about the history and contemporary experiences of Indian Americans as they have grown to be one of the more diverse and well-recognized communities in the United States. Photographs, artifacts, video, and interactives are used to trace their arrival and labor participation in the early 1900s; their achievements in medicine, small business, IT, and taxi-driving; and their many contributions in building the nation. The exhibition also reveals how they have kept and shared their culture and organized to meet the needs of the under-served, as well as how the younger generation has participated in spelling bees, dance, hip-hop, and contemporary cuisine.
