The Pacific Northwest has a rich history of immigrants from Asia. We explore how Chinese and Japanese immigrants struggled to define their social and cultural place in American society, looking at the narrative shift from “Yellow Peril” and “Enemy Aliens” to today’s “Model Minorities”.
Places and ActivitiesThis program is flexible, and can be offered in 3, 5, or 7 day itineraries.

“Envoys was at the top of their game from start to finish. What initially interested me was their focus on curriculum during pre-departure meetings and the program itself. Envoys cares deeply about the experience of the participants and faculty. [They] constantly ask for constructive criticism and make changes when necessary.”— Joe Vogel , Executive Director, Global Education Benchmark Group
