Visitors to a historic sight in Hyderabad, India.
Indian immigrants are the fastest-growing immigrant group in the country, and the pace of growth is faster in our area than just about anywhere else.

In Redmond, Seattle’s tech hub, one in 10 residents are Indian. This deluge of workers and families has shaped life on the Eastside, and it’s having ripple effects on life in India as well.

KUOW reporter Liz Jones travelled to South India for three weeks on an international reporting fellowship to explore this immigration trend. 

This series was possible thanks to a grant from the Ford Foundation, administered by the International Center for Journalists. Carol Smith is the editor.
