Chinese/Chinese American Communities

Scope and Content Note

The Chinese brought with them to the United States traditions and practices that were integral to their daily lives, including specific religious beliefs and rituals. The Chinese communities had temple for worship for Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. The community gathered together to celebrate traditional Chinese festivals. The Chinese in California continued to observe the Lunar New Year in the traditional manner. This important festival was celebrated with elaborate display and plenty of exuberance. Songs, music, and theater were regular leisure activities in the community. Chinese theater performances were important cultural events. In 1852, the first performance of Cantonese opera was held in the American Theatre on Sansome Street, and several months later, the first Chinese theater building was completed. Family relationships were integral to their society and by extension, things associated with family and family members such as food, education, marriage, and funeral customs.
Chinese Americans resisted and took action against the overt discrimination enacted against them. They brought legal cases to the courts--municipal, state, and federal--to combat discriminatory legislation and treatment. Many Chinese also worked with other governmental institutions to protect their rights. They also took their cases to the press. Ho Yow, Chinese Consul General in San Francisco published articles in magazines such as the Overland Monthly, responding publicly as a concerned individual to discrimination.
Chinese medicine fulfilled an important need in the nineteenth century for Chinese and non-Chinese alike. Western medicine had not yet developed the extensive drugs, anesthetics, vaccinations, or sophisticated surgical techniques to which we have become accustomed. Thus, the Chinese understanding of plants used for medicinal purposes was an important component of how injury and disease were handled in the nineteenth-century American West.
Materials in this section are drawn from the collections of The Bancroft Library, the Ethnic Studies Library, and the California Historical Society.

Agriculture, Fishing, and Related Industries

Scope and Content Note

Despite hostility and discrimination, Chinese continued to immigrate to California to avail themselves of whatever opportunities awaited them. When they were prevented from mining gold in the mining districts, they became merchants or laborers, or sought employment elsewhere. Chinese immigrants often found work within the agricultural and fishing industries. Since most of the early Chinese immigrants were from farming areas in China, it was natural for them to become involved in agriculture. Few of them were able to become independent farmers because most were not citizens and thus were prevented by local laws from owning land. However, their contributions were extensive. They reclaimed swampland in the Sacramento Delta. Many raised vegetables and fruit that they sold door-to-door. Others were sharecroppers or tenant farmers, who leased land and paid the landlord part of their crop. Most were migrant farm laborers. Chinese-American farm labor was essential to the development of various crops that required special skill and care, such as harvesting and processing olives. Chinese immigrants also provided essential labor for development of the wine industry in California.
In coastal communities, for example in Monterey, San Diego, and San Luis Obispo counties, Chinese inhabitants helped develop the industry for squid, abalone, shrimp, sturgeon, and various other kinds of fish. They also processed kelp and a variety of other marine products. By the late 1880s, there were more than two thousand Chinese in fishing camps throughout the San Francisco Bay, Monterey and San Diego areas. Chinese fishermen ran into antagonism from white fishermen who pressured the California legislature to pass restrictions on Chinese fishing activities. This caused hardship for the communities and eventually the decline of Chinese fishing operations. The Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 also adversely affected the population of these communities.
The Chinese also provided services as laundrymen, cooks, servants, and gardeners. As early as the 1850s, the first Chinese laundries appeared in San Francisco, and by 1870, these immigrants ran the majority of the laundries. Chinese restaurants also became quite common, serving first the Chinese community, and later other clients as cooks learned to prepare Western fare. Chinese also worked in textile mills manufacturing and in shoe and cigar factories.
Materials in this section are drawn from the collections of The Bancroft Library, the Ethnic Studies Library, and the California Historical Society.

Anti-Chinese Movement & Chinese Exclusion

Scope and Content Note

From the time of their arrival during the Gold Rush, the Chinese experienced discrimination and often overt racism, and finally, exclusion from further immigration. Legislation was used against Chinese immigrants as early as the1850 Foreign Miners' License Tax. In 1854, the California State Supreme Court categorized Chinese with blacks and Indians, denying them there right to testify against white men in courts of law. During the 1870s, an economic downturn resulted in serious unemployment, and led to heightened outcries against Asian immigrants. The Chinese often became the scapegoats for business owners who paid them low wages. This willingness to work for lower wages along with the productivity of the Chinese workers ignited the ire of white labor in California. Racist labor union leaders directed their actions and the anger of unemployed workers at the Chinese, blaming them for depressed wages and lack of jobs, and accusing them of being morally corrupt. Denis Kearney, head of the Workingmen's Party of California, led this inflammatory battle against the Chinese. As a consequence of this hostility, local and statewide restrictions continued to be enforced against the Chinese. Eventually, the United States government passed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, barring Chinese laborers from immigrating for ten years. Only officials, teachers, students, merchants, and travelers were allowed to enter the United States. The Chinese currently in the United States were barred from naturalization. China, as the home country for these immigrants, was unable to exert any influence on American policy. This law stood until it was repealed in 1943.
In 1905, construction of an immigration station on Angel Island began in the area known as China Cove. Surrounded by public controversy from its inception, the station began operation in 1910. Anticipated as the "Ellis Island of the West," it was designed to handle European immigrants who were anticipated to arrive in California once the Panama Canal was opened. Instead, the majority of immigrants to America via the West Coast were from Asia. Like their European counterparts entering at New York City, they hoped to escape the economic or political hardships of their homelands. On Ellis Island, immigrants were processed within hours or days. On Angel Island, immigrants spent weeks or months - this facility functioned primarily as a detention center. Beginning with the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, a series of restrictive laws prohibited the immigration of certain nationalities and social classes of Asians. Although all Asians were affected, the greatest impact was on the Chinese. In fact, more than 70 percent of the immigrants detained on Angel Island were Chinese.
