The Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County invites visitors to see the recently created East Indian exhibit in the new Multi-Cultural Wing to learn about Sikhs in our community. The new permanent exhibit describes all immigrants to our area from India, but it focuses on the majority, who came from the Punjab and follow Sikhism. Along with remarkable artifacts, the exhibit reveals what pulled the immigrants to this area, their difficulties in immigrating from the turn of the 20th century on, what work they did when they arrived, their customs and culture, and the role they play in our modern society. The exhibit also describes the religious beliefs of Sikhs and how those are reflected in their dress and appearance. The exhibit includes a picture tutorial on how to wrap a turban and why. Video displays include photographs and information about the Punjabi community in Sutter and Yuba Counties.
