Chinos en Mexico, una historia olvidada

La historia de los chinos en México no ha sido valorada y lo que es peor, ha sido olvidada. Pero ellos comenzaron a llegar a nuestro país desde fines del siglo pasado, en un flujo constante que se mantiene hasta ahora. Su laboriosidad y austeridad fueron opacadas por el racismo desatado en su contra, muchas veces desde los gobiernos mismos. Actualmente es en el año nuevo chino donde ambas comunidades, se encuentran.

Those who came - Chinese

Los que llegaron - Chinos

In the last years of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth, 30,000 Chinese working class immigrants came to Mexico fleeing poverty and political instability, from southern China (Canton) or the United States. In the US, the Chinese were hired by various U.S. companies to build railroads and work in mining and agriculture. As less work was needed Americans began to reject them, until in 1904 was issued a law banning their entry into that country, so that they fled into Mexico, especially in Baja California. It is estimated that the number of Chinese laborers in that area had fluctuated between seven and eight thousand. At that time the presence and influence of Chinese was so great Mexicali was called "the little Canton" and the neighborhood of the old commercial center of the city is still known as "chinoiserie".

Currently residing in the capital some 9000 Chinese, and nationwide totaling approximately 14,000 overseas Chinese and 40,000 Mexicans of Chinese origin, mainly located in Mexico City, Tijuana, Mexicali and in the state of Chiapas.

Mami: My Grandmother's Journey

Mami: My Grandmother's Journey

by Rebeca Lau

Mami: My Grandmother’s Journey is the unconventional story of a Chinese woman in the southern border city of Tapachula in Mexico in the 20th century. Her arranged marriage, her escape from the Japanese Army, her life in a country so distant and so different from her own, her struggles and successes, her internal conflicts. It is a story that interweaves the past and present of three generations living under one roof filled with cultural clashes between Chinese and Mexican traditions.

Chinese-Mexicans celebrate repatriation to Mexico

In this photo taken Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, Juan Chiu Trujillo, center, a Chinese Mexican poses with his sons; Juan Chiu Chan, left, and Ignacio Chiu Chan, during an interview in Mexico City. Chiu who was born in Mexico, was among thousands of Chinese Mexicans expelled when Mexico erupted into xenophobia fueled by the economic turmoil of the Great Depression. Chiu returned in 1960, along with 300 other Chinese-Mexicans, after President Adolfo Lopez Mateos paid for their travel expenses and decreed that they would be legally allowed to live in Mexico. Dozens of those Chinese-Mexicans and their descendants gather Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012, at a Chinese restaurant in central Mexico City to celebrate the anniversary of their return.
