To know who we are as a people, we look to our ancestors who carved out new lives and upheld old traditions. Kaur Life strives to share as many vintage photos of Sikh women with the community. This way, when think about Sikh history, we no longer have blank minds, but rather a rich bank of images to recall. Here are photos of Sikh women spanning from 1911 to 1966. If you have old or vintage photos of Sikh women, we would love to share them! Submit them to info(at)kaurlife.org. See our entire collection of vintage photos here.
