The University of the Pacific’s Digital Delta Project, in collaboration with the Filipino-American National Historical Society, and Little Manila Rising, and supported by a California Humanities, Humanities for All Grant, created a virtual reality museum exhibit that digitally reconstructs the Little Manila neighborhood in Stockton and interprets its significance as a center of regional and national Filipino-American culture. Little Manila Recreated brings to life the history of this neighborhood, once the largest concentration of Filipinos outside of the Philippines, and explores its destruction through urban redevelopment. The exhibit/game places players in the shoes of mid-twentieth century Filipino immigrants who forged a vibrant ethnic enclave in the face of discrimination and oppressive working conditions, to historicize the effects of immigration policies and city planning decisions on community cohesion. Curriculum development and teacher outreach encourages use of the game in conjunction with the Common Core California History curriculum.
