As far back as 1670, a Sikh was mentioned in the diary of a Colonist, as having been encountered in the company of a sea captain. They were a curiosity as South Asian migration had yet to occur. In 1903, a small trickle of Punjabis arrived in North America through Canada and half traveled onto the United States.
