American Punjabi Sikhs: Yuba City, California—American Communities Series
Punjabi Americans are among California’s most successful farmers. Immigrants from India’s Punjab region have adopted new methods while preserving—and sharing—the customs and culture of their ancestral homeland. At Wal-Mart or Starbucks or on Plumas Street in Yuba City’s restored downtown, men with full beards and distinctive turbans are common sights, as are women wearing Punjabi salwaar kameez or saris.
