Abstract

"Thirty Years Later" is a work of creative nonfiction based on interviews with members of the Portland-area Sikh community regarding their experiences during the 1984 Sikh massacres in India. The narrative, which is set in scene thirty years ago, weaves together 17 testimonies to paint an intimate picture of a people while endeavoring to tell an alternative, subjective history to counter official accounts.
