Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month

Throughout the Month of May 

In 1978, Congress passed a joint Congressional Resolution to commemorate Asian American Heritage Week during the first week of May because of two important anniversaries: the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in America on May 7, 1843, and the completion of the transcontinental railroad (by many Chinese laborers) on May 10, 1869. In 1990, this week was later expanded into a month-long celebration. Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month is a celebration of the culture, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Join ICA as we explore and experience ways to celebrate, engage, and learn about the rich culture of our APIDA community all month long.
