Asian/Pacific Heritage Month


May is Asian/Pacific Heritage Month! 

Asian/Pacific Heritage Month originated through a joint resolution of Congress in 1978 declaring a week in May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week. This continued until 1990 when Congress expanded to celebration to the full month of May. Since 1990, Asian/Pacific Heritage Month has continued to be celebrated annually in May. This guide highlights a variety of government information resources that focus on Asian and Pacific Americans.
