It’s fitting that the shirts participants on the Chinese Heritage Tour of the American West are wearing reflect an Asian American or Chinese theme.

Case in point: One tour member, a man, was wearing this shirt with three Chinese characters. It translates to: “Toisan man.” Toisan – or Taishan – is the area in southern China where many of the first Chinese immigrants to the United States once called home.

One youth sported a shirt from the International Examiner, a Seattle-based newspaper which focuses on Northwest Asian American communities.

There are hats, too.
