Relevant Projects

East at Main Street: APIA Mapping Project gathers photographs, videos, memories, and other material related to places that are important to Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) communities. Few sites associated with APIA history and cultures have been recognized as landmarks. Raising awareness of these places will assist their preservation for the future and help create a more complete picture of United States history. In collaboration with community groups, non-profit organizations, archives and individuals we are gathering materials (photographs, old newspapers, historic maps, etc.) and stories (oral histories or talk story, written narratives, etc.) to capture the rich layers of place-making and community-building in historically and culturally significant sites throughout the United States and US territories.Help us uncover and share information and memories reflecting the historical and cultural contributions of API Americans.
