ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICANS have a long, rich history in the country now known as the United States. From Native Hawaiians—the original inhabitants and rightful stewards of the islands—to more recent voluntary and involuntary immigrants, Asian Pacific Americans have created homes, built communities, and contributed to the diverse storytelling fabric of society. Our creatives tell stories through different media, demanding and creating #OwnVoices narratives that push back against single story stereotypes of perpetual foreigners and slant-eyed caricatures. They push back against the notions that our food is inedible, our language is unintelligible, and our dreams do not matter.
