Japan and Japanese-Americans  ラスカ・ユーコン 太平洋博覧会
In the Northwest, Japanese outnumbered Chinese by 1909, although racist persecution was
  growing despite protection by the Japanese government.  That government mounted a major
  official exhibit at the AYPE.  But local Japanese-Americans produced their own exhibit anyway.
Philippines
  Very few Filipinos lived in the region at the time of the AYPE.  The exhibits, which included living
  Filipinos, were produced by and for European-Americans.
China and Chinese-Americans
  The Chinese population of the Pacific Northwest had fallen sharply since the anti-Chinese riots
  of the mid-1880s.  China, unable to protect local Chinese, did not take part in the AYPE.   And
  yet those local Chinese, with surprising confidence, chose to mount a China exhibit of their own.
The AYP Exposition and Other Fairs
  The AYPE was not the first world fair for U.S.-resident Asians.  They had joined such fairs
  since 1893.  The fairs played a central role in the growth of new Asian-American identities
Asian-Pacific Women and the AYPE
Women's suffrage was a big theme at the Fair, and Washington women won the right to vote in the next
  year, 1910.  However, as shown by images of Asian-Pacific women at the Fair, sexism was hardly dead
The Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition (AYPE), Seattle, 1909  美国阿拉斯加— 尤康— 太平洋博览会
   Based largely on work with primary sources, the AYPE page of this website contains much as-yet
   unpublished data about Asian- (Chinese-, Japanese-, Filipino-) American participation in the AYPE.
   The AYPE is compared with other  American world fairs with Asian exhibits, especially the World's
   Columbian Exposition in Chicago (1893) and the Lewis and Clark Exposition in Portland (1905). 
Symposium on Asians in the AYPE, September 12 & 13, 2009, Seattle  西雅图博览会讨会
                                      ラスカ・ユーコン 太平洋博覧会会議
The editors of CINARC organized a 2-day symposium to examine the roles of Chinese, Japanese,
Filipinos, and Hawaiians in the AYPE.  The symposium was attended by 101 persons at two
Seattle venues - the National Archives and Records Administration (9/12) and the Burke Museum of
Natural History and Culture (9/13).  Partial funding came from 4Culture of King County.
