Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month celebrates the diverse range of ethnicities that make up the Asian American experience.
The university’s APIDA Heritage Month began Jan. 17.
APIDA Heritage Month is nationally celebrated in May.
The heritage month kicked off with the event, “Cooking and Conversation: The Love Language of Food.” Various students gathered to celebrate family recipes and their cultural background.
Both of them referenced heritage month as a means to reclaim space and highlight their histories.
