Sikhism, the fifth largest religion in the world, is growing rapidly. This faith, with roots in Punjab, has also recently gained greater political importance. Manmohan Singh, the current Prime Minister of India, is one of 26 million people that practice Sikhism. In spite of this, Sikhs continue to experience discrimination and are often misunderstood. Asia Society Texas Center, in partnership with The Sikh Coalition, is proud to present a two-hour educator workshop that will examine the history of Sikhism in America and give tips on how to teach the religion in your classrooms. Sikhism has been added for the first time to the new Social Studies Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). To learn more, visit AsiaSociety.org/Texas.
