Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month is a national celebration to pay tribute to the contributions generations of Asian and Pacific Islanders have made to American history, society and culture.
Like most commemorative months, Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month originated in a congressional bill. In June 1977, Representatives Fran Horton of New York and Norman Y. Mineta of California introduced a House resolution that called upon the president to proclaim the first ten days of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Week. The following month, senators Daniel Inouye and Spark Matsunaga introduced a similar bill in the Senate. Both were passed. On October 5, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a Joint Resolution designating the annual celebration. Twelve years later, President George H.W. Bush signed an extension makiing the week-long celebration into a month-long celebration. In 1992, the official designation of May as Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month was signed into law.
