Asian/Pacific Islander History Month – April
President Jimmy Carter signed a Join Resolution on October 5, 1978 declaring the first ten days of May Asian-Pacific Heritage Week. It took twelve years before President George H.W. Bush would turn it into a month long celebration. It was in 1992 that the official designation of Asian/Pacific Islander Month was signed into law. May was chosen to memorialize the immigration of the first Japanese to the U.S. in May 1843. It also symbolizes the conclusion of the transcontinental railroad, where the majority of workers were Chinese immigrants. NMU celebrates this event in April.
