Explore NIAM’s Oral History Collection
The National Indo American Museum’s Oral History Project gathers, preserves, and shares the stories of the Indian American immigrants who settled in the Chicago area. These oral histories allow us to reminisce about shared experiences, reconnect with our roots, and appreciate the historic journeys of our friends and neighbors.
Your tax-deductible gift will help us support current and future programs and exhibitions and serve as a legacy for generations to come.

Why give to NIAM?
“Since its founding in 2008, the Museum has been committed to honoring the Indo-American experience by means of hosting numerous programs that showcase immigrant history, document achievements of Indian Americans, and enable cross-cultural exchanges. These initiatives have allowed people to delve into the rich culture of the Indian diaspora in the United States. Your unique organization has inspired a deeper appreciation for Indo-American culture, and all who contribute to the success of the Museum can take pride in that.”
Raja Krishnamoorthi, U.S. House of Representatives, 8th District of Illinois
“As a teacher, I value the rich first-hand accounts that NIAM volunteers share with my students about daily life in contemporary India, and the past and current experiences of Indians living in Chicago. Through these stories the powerful theme of diversity comes through beautifully!”
Michael Tajchman, third grade teacher, Ravenswood Elementary, Chicago Public Schools
