Peoples of Washington celebrates the cultural and ethnic diversity of Washington, as well as presenting an overview of the state's many ethnic communities. Included in the book are numerous historical illustrations and commentary prepared by a multicultural group of scholars. Each ethnic community in Washington has a story to tell. Where did its people come from? When did they arrive? What is the story of their migration and settlement? What struggles did they face? What are their accomplishments? What has happened to their cultures and traditions? What are their aspirations for the future? These are questions posed and answered in Peoples of Washington.
