AAPI Heritage Month from BrainPop

"What Chinese-American architect built the iconic entrance to the Louvre Museum in Paris? What Filipino-American labor leader kicked off the famous Delano grape strike? And what about the veteran helicopter pilot who also happens to be the junior senator from Illinois? In the latest episode of BrainPOP News, your child can join Tim and the gang for a quiz show about some pretty impressive Asian Americans that answers these questions and more. For extra credit, discover the accompanying worksheet for a version of the game you can play at home as a family."


Asian Americans: PBS Series

"Asian Americans is a five-hour film series that delivers a bold, fresh perspective on a history that matters today, more than ever. As America becomes more diverse, and more divided while facing unimaginable challenges, how do we move forward together? Told through intimate personal stories, the series will cast a new lens on U.S. history and the ongoing role that Asian Americans have played." Watch the full series on PBS or on YouTube.

  • What Pacific Islanders Want You to Know: "I had to teach myself about myself."
  • Professor Haunani-Kay Trask on the word Haole: "A Caucasian student claimed the Hawaiian word 'haole' was derogatory and equated it to the n-word. In response, Professor Haunani-Kay Trask provided a brief history of Hawai'i, discussed the decline of our language and highlighted the narrative of white supremacy in America." 
  • Asian: How You See Me: "'Chinese are not the same as Japanese, are not the same as Koreans, Filipinos, or Thai, or Indians...' We talked with people from a variety of Asian cultures about how they think the world sees them."
