May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. The month of May was chosen in commemoration of the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843 and the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of workers that built the transcontinental railroad were Chinese immigrants. 

The term Asian/Pacific includes the entirety of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marinas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, and Easter Island).
