Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month is celebrated annually in May in the United States to highlight the history, heritage and contributions of Asian Pacific American communities.  Asian-Americans and Pacific Islander Americans (AAPI) play a large role in the history of the United States. Contributing to stronger societies as individuals and as a group, their ancestry tracks back to continental Asia (the Middle East, East Asia and Southeast Asia) and the Pacific Islands (Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia) in the United States. The contributions of the AAPI community are vast, from art to infrastructure to politics, and much more.    

Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs) have played an important role in U.S. history, which we want to celebrate! Learn more at these websites:

There are also many online API Deaf/HH  communities that provide helpful insight and support.  We encourage you to find one that works best for you.


Below, we share some fun ASL Storysigning Videos from API authors and illustrators.  Take a look!
