University Press of Florida

This chapter establishes a detailed historical context for interpreting archaeological data from Don and Lion Islands and other diasporic Asian communities. It provides information on traditional and changing patterns of material consumption in British Columbia, China, and Japan that affected the choices of and constraints upon Asian migrants. The chapter particularly focuses on diet and alcohol consumption, which are strongly represented archaeologically. Also addressed are issues of racism, legal status, and emerging nationalism in the homeland that affected how Asian migrants perceived themselves, how they were perceived by members of the host society, and which shaped the nature of their consumer habits.

Keywords:   material consumption, history, China, Japan, British Columbia, diet, alcohol consumption, racism, nationalism
