Massacred For Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon

MASSACRED FOR GOLD Trailer from Morris Hill Pictures on Vimeo.

In 1887, a group of Chinese miners were killed not only for their gold but out of pure hate–not only were they shot and robbed of their gold, but they were hacked to pieces and thrown in the river. The local community in Hells Canyon, Oregan has placed a memorial in remembrance of the massacre. A new documentary is out now based on the book Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon written about one of the worst racial hate crimes in American history.
