he discovery of gold in the Black Hills of South Dakota brought thousands of people to the mining town of Deadwood, including many Chinese immigrants. Ethnic Oasis explores how the Chinese met the challenge of living and working in a land much different from their own.
Seeking to surround themselves with the familiar, they established their own "Chinatowns" in Deadwood and other communities throughout the West. From these enclaves, the Chinese competed to succeed in American society. Through diligence and an ability to work within the social and legal systems, many thrived and became respected members of what had been a hostile community.
Ethnic Oasis presents the history and archaeology of the Chinese experience in the Black Hills and elsewhere in the West.
