Asia is a vast continent whose peoples extend from the islands of Japan, to the
"stans" (such as Kazakhstan, Pakistan, and Afghanistan) in the west, and from India
and Indonesia along the Indian Ocean to Mongolia and Siberia in the north. In addition,
Asian peoples, cultures, trade links, and political ties have long extended far
beyond mere geographic boundaries. From the Silk Road and spice trade of antiquity
to immigrant communities and the Internet, Asian influences and peoples are central
to understanding a global story.
Wichita, with a population of approximately 330,000 and an Asian population of about
11,300, is the largest city in Kansas. It is approximately 200 miles from the two
closest large metropolitan areas, Kansas City and Oklahoma City.
Wichita Asian Association is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promote cultural
awareness among various Asian groups, to foster an understanding and appreciation
of Asian cultures by the community at large, to strengthen awareness among youths
of Asian ancestry and the legacy of their cultural roots, and to provide opportunities
