May Focus: Asian American and Pacific Islander Month

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Month. This rather broad term encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific Islands of Melanesia. Like most commemorative months, this month originated in a congressional bill. In 1977, it was first introduced as a House resolution that called the president to proclaim the first ten days of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Week. In 1993, the official designation of May as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month was signed into law. The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the U.S. on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.
