Celebrating Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month, part 2

11 May Celebrating Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month, part 2

Every May during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and our partners share those histories and the continuing culture thriving in parks and communities today.  May 2020 Monthly Theme: Commemorating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) 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. NPS parks, programs, and partners can highlight the stories of the triumphs, perseverance, and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders as we also recognize how people of today continue to share and preserve their natural and cultural heritage.
