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.
