The Korean Americans

The Korean Americans

by Tamra Orr

Hoping to escape the tyranny of the Japanese government, which controlled their country during the 19th century, many Koreans made the hard decision to leave their homes-and sometimes their entire families-to find a better, more successful life in the United States or Canada. From the Hawaiian plantation workers to the industrious shopkeepers of today, Korean Americans have overcome prejudice and hardship to become a thriving part of North American culture.
