Be Heard: Asian Experiences in Indiana

Asian people have been calling Indiana home since the1800s. In Be Heard: Asian Experiences in Indiana – the third installment of our Be Heard exhibit series – we explore why this community reached its predominance in Indiana in the last half of the 20th century.

Our Asian History Collecting Initiative gathered life stories from more than 20 individuals from South Asia, the plateau of Tibet into China and as far east as the Asian countries in and around the Pacific Ocean. Their experiences as native-born U.S. citizens, foreign nationals and as Hoosiers have shaped the diverse cultural identity of our Asian population. The exhibit celebrates them and their contributions through their words and voices, and items they donated to our collection or loaned for this exhibit.

Cultural and regional history come alive at audio stations with interview excerpts covering almost 90 years of life experiences, both in and out of the Hoosier State.

Presented by Kwang Casey, Owner of Oaken Barrel Brewing
