Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month is a month to celebrate and pay tribute to the contributions that generations of Asian/Pacific Americans have made to American history, society and culture. On October 5, 1978, President Jimmy Carter Signed a resolution designating the annual celebration. Twelve Years Later, President George H.W. Bush signed an extension making the week-long celebration into a month-long celebration.
