May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a month-long initiative dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the various cultures within the Asian Community

In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Tourism Diversity Matters will feature Asian Americans and Pacific Islander cultural diversity insights to recognize their contributions and influence on U.S. history and culture.  A record 23 million Asian Americans can trace their roots to 20+ countries in East and Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent, each with unique histories, cultures, languages, and other characteristics.
