|Abstract:||This paper aims to clarify the acculturation of second-generation Asian Indian children in America by focusing on the way of thinking and the attitude toward the culture of India and America respectively. The number of immigrants from India to America has been increasing since the 1990s. Asian Indian immigrants in America need to adapt to the American society by preserving their own culture and tradition of India. The process of the acculturation of immigrants in America can be divided into three types. The way of adapting to the American society is various. Furthermore, three types of characteristics can be found in the case of second-generation Asian Indian children in America. Children of the first type reject their Indian culture and try to become an American. Children of the second type try to maintain their Indian culture but do not try to become an American. Children of the third type try to keep their Indian culture and relate to the American culture at the same time. Children of the first type could not adapt themselves to the American society because of the discrimination and prejudice from Americans. Also, children of the second type were not able to adapt themselves to the American society as well. However, some of them were able to maintain their Indian culture well, while others did not like their Indian culture. Lastly, children of the third type were able to adapt themselves to the American society and kept their own Indian culture at the same time. Clarifying the factors which affect the way of thinking and the attitude toward the culture of India and America of the second-generation Asian Indian children in America will be a future task.|
