APAHA Festival- Our Rich Tapestry of Cultures

APAHA
serves as host organization of the Greater Houston area’s Asian/Pacific
American Heritage Month Festival, the highlight of the month-long celebration.
The celebration brings together thousands of Houstonians. Vendors, culinary delights,
artists, calligraphers and performers display our vibrant community. Each year APAHA brings in outstanding cultural and art
performance groups from Asia, Pacific Islands and the US to promote the richness and
diverse culture of the Asian Pacific region.

Population(s) Served

Asian/Pacific American
history is full of relevance and interest to all Asian/Pacific and general intellectual groups. Since April
2010, the Distinguished Speaker Series is the signature program for promoting
Asian/Pacific awareness and
education. The series brought together audiences to experience multi-dimensional
and interactive presentations while enjoying delightful ethnic dinners.

The first event highlighted Giovanna Pang Garcia, author of
“Why Chinese Women Are not Broke”.
The event brought a huge turnout. The series continued by inviting Houston’s
own Raymond Chong, a past highly ranked City of Houston traffic engineer and
author of Gim Suey Chong: His Life from Hoyping to Gum Saan‏. Chong’s book
describes his odyssey of ethnic self-realization in America. In the same year, another
award-winning author, Madeline Hsu, spoke on “The Origins of Chop Suey: Chinese
American Entrepreneurship at the Turn of the Twentieth Century”. The latest speaker, Dr. Julia Lee, explored
the African American and Asian Americans encounters in literature and culture
in the early twentieth-century. This speaker event connects with early Asian Pacific immigration history.

Population(s) Served

Each year APAHA and CenterPoint
Energy ring in the Lunar New Year celebration at the Children’s Museum of Houston. The goal is to introduce the
Lunar New Year and bring Asian/Pacific culture to a wider general audience. Families
of all ethnicities join in the celebration. The audience witnesses a special
Lion Dance, and traditional Asian/Pacific ethnic dance performances. Hands on activities are located in the museum
throughout the day to allow visitors of all ages to create arts and crafts or watch
a demonstration.

Population(s) Served

To promote APA Heritage Month,
Polynesian dance and culture were brought to six Houston Area Libraries, also
Asian dance and culture were presented at the Houston
Central Library’s Program Place to allow visitors to the libraries to enjoy
the performing arts at each site. Information about the Asian Pacific American
Heritage Association was shared by APAHA board members and volunteers through a
program description, banners and other APAHA outreach materials.

Population(s) Served

The ongoing series of
Faith and Culture Bus Tours explore Asian/Pacific sites of worship
around Houston.
APAHA partnered with Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston,
a nonprofit organization with shared interest in bringing people of diverse
faiths and cultures together for dialogue, collaboration and service. This Bus
Tour is an ongoing series, with one run in the spring and a 2nd APAHA/IMGH bus
tour is organized in fall, with mostly new tour stops. The
Asian/Pacific-Houston mosaic of faith shined brightly while people had the
opportunity to tour the city’s remarkable faith community. Four religious sites
around the Houston
area opened their doors to host a lecture and tour about their faith, culture
and customs.
