Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month 2023 Resource Guide

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. This month, we celebrate and uplift the achievements, contributions, and rich heritage of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). 

Representing more than 40 countries and ethnic groups as well as 100 different languages, AAPI folks have made (and continue to make) a huge impact on all aspects of life in the U.S., with Oklahoma being no exception. 

Learn more about these diverse communities by exploring the resources below, and be sure to support AAPI-owned businesses in Oklahoma every month of the year.
