May is Asian American and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American Month

May is designated and recognized as Asian American and Native Hawaiian/ Pacific Islander Heritage Month by our Federal Government through bipartisan legislation in the 1970's and Presidential Proclamation in 1992 by George Bush. Asian American and Native Hawaiian/ Pacific Islander Heritage Month is recognized in May to honor the specific immigration of the Japanese to America commencing in May of 1843 and also to honor the Golden Spike Ceremony on May 10, 1869 uniting the trans-Pacific railroad that was successful through the thousands of Chinese laborers toiling on the railroad. The history of Asian-American and Pacific Islander contributions first were documented with immigration of Filipinos to present-day California in 1587 and waves of immigration from China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and other Asian Pacific countries.

The Borough Council of Lansdowne recognizes the contributions of Asian Americans from the many different cultures and nationalities to the culture of Lansdowne. During the month of May Lansdowne Borough honors our many residents of Asian American and Pacific ls land and Hawaiian Heritage Month and are committed to honor the historical and contemporary contributions to the world. the United States, and to Lansdowne.
