Support a Documentary About Milestone of the First South Asians Who Migrated from India to Canada
Karen Dosanjh’s book Untold Stories: The South Asian Pioneer Experience in BC (British Columbia) has been adapted in to a documentary Hidden Histories which showcases the historic milestones of the first South Asians who migrated from India to Canada. The documentary covers the arrival of South Asians in the early 1900s, to the rampant anti-Asian sentiments they faced, to key events that led to the disenfranchisement of the early settlers along with untold stories on Canadian immigration bans and other discriminatory actions that hindered the basic citizens’ rights of the South Asian pioneers.
