Native Sons of the Golden State was formed in 1895 by a small group of Chinese American men in San Francisco for the purpose
of accelerating the assimilation process by overcoming both the prejudice of their elders and the Caucasians' skepticism toward
racial compatibility. In 1915 it was reorganized as a national organization under the name Chinese American Citizens Alliance
with the Grand Lodge headquartered in San Francisco serving as the governing body with elections held biennially.
