May is Asian/ Pacific American Heritage Month, during which we celebrate the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders whose rich heritage has shaped the history of the United States while having their lives dramatically influenced by moments in its history.

 Asian/Pacific is a broad term that encompasses all of the Asian continent (though focusing on East and Southeast Asia) and the Pacific islands of Melanesia.
