*Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month is celebrated annually in the United States during the month of May. On October 5, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a Joint Resolution proclaiming the first 10 days in May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Week. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed an extension making the week-long celebration into a month long recognition. In 1992, the month of May was officially designated as Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month by law.
May was chosen because it commemorates the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States in 1843. May also marks the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 which was work performed by mostly Chinese immigrants
