May is Asian-American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month


asian american and pacific islander heritage month


In 1992, Congress designated May as Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month

"Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have a rich heritage thousands of years old and have both shaped the history of the United States and had their lives dramatically influenced by moments in its history. Every May during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and its partners share those histories and the continuing culture thriving in parks and communities today."
