Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month is observed annually in the U.S. during May and recognizes the achievements and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Americans in the history, culture, and achievements of our country.

The legacy of the AAPI community dates back to the earliest arrival of Asian immigrants to North America and the contributions of families and individuals continue to shape the heritage of the lower Rio Grande Valley.

This exhibit documents Asian exclusion and anti-immigration as well as the historical contributions and achievements of our APA community in the Valley.
