Description: Interviews track the adjustment and development of the children of the narrators interviewed in phase 1 of the India Association of Minnesota Oral History Project. The second-generation narrators are between 18 and 40 years of age and most grew up in bilingual homes. They found that the social lives of their parents revolved primarily around the Indian immigrant community, while their lives often included few, if any, Asian Indians. A recurring difference between the original immigrants and their children appears around the social issues of dating, marriage, and child-rearing.
