AANHPI Heritage Month, but Make it Outdoorsy

This May, we’re celebrating Asian American and Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month and we want to use this opportunity to highlight the issues, work, and joy within the community in hopes to educate and move towards a more loving and welcoming future. 

The AANHPI community has been targeted and attacked in a string of violent, hate crimes across many cities, and the outdoors are no exception. The community has experienced racism like many communities of color in America and have endured years and years of internal and intergenerational trauma. Finally, they’re being seen and heard, and taking up space for themselves. 

Dive in below to get started with articles, films, books, podcasts, social media and more spotlighting Asian outdoorists and how we can be better community allies. Resources curated by Vivian Wang:

Just like our Black History Month article, these resources are a mere starting point for learning and unlearning the past, present, and future of the AANHPI community in the outdoors and beyond. If you’ve got a AANHPI History Month resource we’re missing, send it to us and we’ll add it to the growing list!
