ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Chinese Americans in New Mexico and Chinese immigration in the 1800s are the focus of a new exhibit in Albuquerque.

The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology at the University of New Mexico is hosting the special exhibit until September on Chinese-American roots in the American Southwest.

The “Earth, Fire and Life: Six Thousand Years of Chinese Ceramics and Chinese American New Mexicans” will feature a number of items from communities that sought to build a permanent presence in the state.

The exhibition recounts the story of Chinese immigrants and Chinese American communities in New Mexico through photographs, documents and family heirlooms.
