May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a national celebration of people in the U.S. with Asian and Pacific Islander heritage.
The University of Idaho Office of Multicultural Affairs organizes festivities for AAPI Heritage Month every year, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced a change in plans this year.
In 2019, OMA co-hosted a screening of “Crazy Rich Asians” with the UI Asian American Pacific Islander Association.
The office also hosted a lecture on Idaho’s Asian American history and a Chinese food cooking social.
Information on national events and celebrations can be found at the AAPI Heritage Month website.
