Day 11. Asians and Asian Exclusion.

“The Chinese and Japanese immigration of the second half of the 19th century began a new chapter in America’s religious history. The broad Confucian respect for family, popular temple Daoism with its deities of protection, and Buddhism in its many forms—all found their way to American shores. With the Indian immigration that began in the early 20th century, Sikhs from the fertile farmlands of the Punjab added their traditions to this new burst of religious diversity.” – Pluralism.org by Harvard University

Nonetheless, Chinese and Japanese immigrants and US Citizens were denied access to fair treatment under the law with the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Find out more about the Chinese Exclusion Act from the National Archives at (https://www.archives.gov/milestone-documents/chinese-exclusion-act).
