2012 Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
IU Asian Culture Center

April Asian American Film Festival

What is APAHM? Asian Pacific American Heritage month began in 1978 as a week-long celebration of Asian and Pacific Islander culture in America. In 1992, the celebration was expanded to a full month. Normally celebrated in May, Indiana University celebrates APAHM in April to allow the entire campus and community to take part in the activities before the semester ends. This month-long celebration brings to light the accomplishments, struggles, hopes, and contributions of Asian Pacific Americans. this year's theme is "Remembering the Past, Building a Future" as we look forward to building stronger communities and reflecting on past triumphs.
