Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May 7 @ 12:30 pm - June 1 @ 5:00 pm

During Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we recognize the numerous contributions and rich culture of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AA and NHPIs). AA and NHPIs have long been essential in writing the American story. From serving our country in uniform, advocating for civil rights, starting new businesses, and winning Olympic medals, the AA and NHPI community’s contributions touch Americans’ lives every day.

As some of the fastest-growing racial and ethnic groups in the United States, the AA and NHPI communities represent a multitude of ethnicities, languages, and experiences. These traditions—woven into the fabric of the United States—originate from regions across the entire Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, and Easter Island).
