Culture has a way of connecting us from the things we have in common to our differences. For AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth we created a space for our voices to be heard and to defy or embrace the stereotypes that are placed on Asian Americans. We asked a few Asian Pacific American R29 staffers what their favorite thing about their culture is and discovered that the strings that attach us so closely with our culture are also associated with the memories we make with our families. The act of gathering and creating food brings us together and something we still defer back to when we're feeling a bit homesick. Skip navigation! Story from Wellness.

Asian Americans are Americans of Asian ancestry. The term refers to a panethnic and pancontinental group that includes diverse populations, which have origins in East Asia , South Asia , or Southeast Asia , as defined by the United States Census Bureau. Although migrants from Asia have been in parts of the contemporary United States since the 17th century, large-scale immigration did not begin until the midth century. Nativist immigration laws during the s—s excluded various Asian groups, eventually prohibiting almost all Asian immigration to the continental United States. After immigration laws were reformed during the s—60s, abolishing national origins quotas , Asian immigration increased rapidly.
