The history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States is a fundamental part of our nation’s story. Originating in the 1600s, AAPI immigrants have left an indelible mark on the nation we know today. Their impact spans from championing workers’ rights and battling for school integration and citizenship, to dismantling stereotypes like the model minority myth. Despite their integral role, AAPI history is often forgotten or overlooked.

We have curated a selection of free, high-quality resources for K-12 educators. Please reach out if you have any questions or would like support or ideas on how to bring AAPI history to life in your classrooms.
