Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

The United States recognizes the month of May as Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Join the National Geographic Society in amplifying histories, stories, and contributions of innovators, storytellers, scientists, artists, and National Geographic Explorers of Asian, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander descent.

In this collection, we honor the diaspora around the globe. From marine biologist Asha de Vos pioneering blue whale research in the Indian Ocean to photographers Sandesh Kadur and Hannah Reyes Morales documenting stories with their cameras, each Explorer has their own story to tell. Celebrate their accomplishments and learn more about their heritages through this collection.
