From the builders of some of America’s earliest railroads and farms, to civil rights pioneers, to digital technology entrepreneurs, Indian Americans have long been an inextricable part of American life. Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation explores that rich heritage, and the daily experiences and diverse contributions of Indian immigrants and their descendants in the United States.
Weaving together stories of individual achievement and collective struggle, Beyond Bollywood uses photography, artifacts, and oral histories to tell a uniquely American story, and was created by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The exhibit’s presentation at MOHAI will also include insights into the Northwest’s Indian American community, highlighting key moments in our region’s history and compelling stories of Northwest Indian American pioneers.
