Understanding the Indian American experience in the United States requires knowledge of Indian histories, such as British colonialism, immigration policies, and casteism, that have shaped the lived experiences of this population. Significant values and cultural norms, such as being a collectivist and the importance of family, are central to the Indian American experience.
