Synopsis: Chinese immigrants were instrumental in building the American West, but they faced unprecedented legalized discrimination and violence.
The U.S.’s worst mass murder of Chinese by whites happened in rural Oregon when a gang of horse thieves killed as many as 34 Chinese gold miners. For over a century, the murders were covered up, and no one was held accountable. Today, the massacre at Hells Canyon is finally acknowledged.
