ABSTRACT
The author challenges the idea of immigration as a unilinear experience progressing to the endpoint of assimilation. She maintains that scholarly research has trained the eye to look at immigration that way, but that the experience is a changeable process that includes dialogue, resistance and action. As illustration, the author discusses Nepali immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area who established a transnational social action group called Kartabya. Hometown associations, home-host country relationships, indigenous practices and misunderstandings between those who remain and those who leave are mentioned.
