From the Archives: Vietnamese Portland
April 23, 2020
The Vietnamese community comprises 2% of the population of Portland, one of the largest among major U.S. cities. The experiences of this community in Portland offer an important corrective to the traditional picture of Oregon’s past. In an effort to create a more rounded history of Portland, Lewis & Clark students created podcasts using our growing archive, Vietnamese Portland: History, Memory, Community. From accounts of immigration to the experiences of later generations born in the US, they tell stories from our community.
