Getting to know the region’s Cham community

When asked to research the history of the Cham Refugee Community in Seattle I expected to find little to no information on the ethnic group. As a young Cham woman who grew up in South Seattle I struggle to define what it means to be Cham. I often weigh my Muslim identity above my ethnic background, finding it easier to shape my identity around Islamic values than to dive into the complexity of the Cham identity, and I am challenged to dive deeper into the history, culture and community of Cham people.
