Chinese New Year 2021 begins tomorrow, Friday, February 12th, 2021! It's the Year of the Ox. In the Chinese zodiac, the Ox is known for its honest nature, diligence, dependability, strength and determination. The Ox has a significant place in Asian culture.
The words that describe the Ox seem appropriate for Chinese immigrants who have come to call Johnson County home. Dig into a little of their experience at jocohistory.org. There you'll find the photograph seen here of students of the Chinese school, oral histories like Lihui Xiong - New Immigrants and the American Dream Exhibit, advertisements for Chinese businesses in publications like The County Squire, The Johnson County Leader, The Village Squire, and more when using the search term: "Chinese History."
