Year of the Tiger: Chinese Traditions in Sonoma County 1890-2022

Ongoing showcase

While Chinese residents already lived in Santa Rosa by 1890, the year is a good starting point for the establishment of Santa Rosa’s historic Chinatown as a defined neighborhood.

Consisting of wood sidewalks and modest buildings along Second Street, it was occupied by a community of mostly men, and an occasional family, isolated to that part of the city as racism and anti-Chinese rhetoric reached a peak in the 1880s. As 1890 was the Year of the Tiger in Chinese astrology, 2022 marks the return of the Year of the Tiger and a time to look back at the continuing presence of Chinese traditions in Sonoma County.

Year of the Tiger shows that while the Chinese American community is more equally integrated into the North Bay, the important threads of community, culture, language, tradition, ritual, and history remain tightly woven into the fabric of Sonoma County. This exhibition was done in partnership with the Redwood Empire Chinese Association, founded in 1988 with a focus on sharing Chinese culture.
