Asian and Pacific Islander month

Tausinga Makaafi, Staff Writer

Apparently, there was an Asian Pacific Islander heritage month that never knew about, but it’s cool to know there’s something like that. I wanted to write about it because I was more curious than wanting to spread awareness about this traditional thing. [I only know about Pride month in June because some kid I know was babbling about it and I was curious to know more about Pride month.]

I wanted to learn more about Asian and Pacific Islander eritage month because I am a Pacific Islander.

One of the things I wanted to know was when it was made into a month, ,its origin and where it originated from. What I got so far was that it was actually supposed to be only for a week by George W. Bush, but then-President Barack Obama changed it to a month
