The Asia Society was founded to foster understanding between Asians and Americans. Since the founding of the Asia Society, its programming has encompassed the public affairs, arts and cultures of all of the diverse countries of Asia, and, in response to changing demographics in the U.S., has expanded to include programs relating to Asian American issues. The Asia Society looks at all of Asia, without excluding any country, area or issue from its mandate. Dedicated to fostering an understanding of Asia and communication between Americans and the peoples of Asia and the Pacific. A nonprofit, nonpartisan educational institution, the Asia Society presents a wide range of programs including major art exhibitions, performances, international corporate conferences and contemporary affairs programs.

Asian American History and Experience Continued: Filipino Americans and Japanese Americans Filipino Americans are residents of the United States who trace their ancestry to the Philippines, also known as Pilipino Americans. According to the 1990 U.S. census, Filipino Americans constitute the second largest group of Asian Americans, after Chinese Americans. There are more than 1.4 million Filipino Americans in the United States. A majority of them reside in California, with smaller populations in Hawaii, Illinois, New York, and New Jersey. Filipino American culture centers on family and kinship relations. For Filipino Americans, the family usually includes extended family members, such as grandparents and other relatives. These families provide both material and emotional support for their members. Filipino Americans typically show great respect for their parents and older relatives. Younger people often take care of their elderly parents. Filipino Americans often make sacrifices to ensure their children's well-being and future economic security. They place a high value on education, particularly higher education, because it is viewed as a means of securing social and economic success. Many Filipino Americans provide monetary assistance to relatives in the Philippines and sometimes help them immigrate to the United States. The Filipino American community is socially and culturally diverse. Well-established Filipino American families that have assimilated into American culture often live alongside recent immigrants from the Philippines. The Filipino American community includes many people from each of the three major ethnic and linguistic groups of the Philippines- Visayans, Ilokanos, and Tagalogs. Smaller groups, such as Pampangans, Pangasinanses, and Ilonggos, add to the linguistic richness of the community. Many immigrant families use one of the Philippine languages at home. Filipino (or Pilipino), the Philippine national language, is the sixth most commonly spoken foreign language in the United States.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and Tobacco
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are persons of Asian or Pacific Islander ancestry whose origins are from China and Mongolia to the north, Indonesia to the south, the Indian subcontinent to the west, and the U.S.-related Pacific Islands to the east. The six largest subgroups of Asian Americans are from China, the Philippines, Japan, Asian India, Korea, and Vietnam. Hawaiians, Samoans, and Guamanians are the three largest Pacific Islander subgroups. Although Asian Americans reside across the country, approximately 66% live in California, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, and Texas. Approximately 75% of the Pacific Islanders population live in just two states – California and Hawaii. Asian American population nearly doubled in size from an estimated 3.5 million in 1980 to almost 7 million in 1990, while Pacific Islanders population grew by 41% between 1980 (259,566) and 1990 (365,024).

Asian Americans People from Asia have been migrating to the United States for nearly 200 years now. The first Asian immigrants came from China, and they were brought over by American companies seeking cheap laborers. Early Asian immigrants, mostly Chinese and Japanese, were met with resentment and racism by whites in the U.S. In addition to violent attacks, early Asian immigrants were subjected to a long list of anti-Asian legislation. One of the effects of this legislation was to make it nearly impossible for any new immigrants from Asia to come to the United States for nearly a century until the mid-1960s. As a result, the vast majority of the Asian-Pacific American population has come to the United States during the past four decades.
As with the other groups of racial categorization, the race “Asian” is problematic. It is based largely on geography, rather than on the race of the people. For instance, people from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India do not racially look like people from China, Japan, and Vietnam but are categorized in the same race because of their geography.

Asian-American students seek identity in month of awareness
By Cecille Lucero Published: Friday, April 23, 2004 Last Tuesday, with poise and a sense of urgency, UM creative writing Professor M. Evelina Galang read selections from her works that explore unanswered questions in issues such as teenage pregnancy in American culture. Imploring young Asian-American students to speak out on issues they are traditionally taught to be silent on, she emulated one of the aims of Asian Pacific American Awareness Month [APAAM]: to speak out.
Inspired by last fall's Screaming Monkeys, a symposium exploring the images of Asians in America, students have been seeking insight on their cultural identity during APAAM. A series of student-led panels gave students the opportunity to debate with faculty and their peers on such issues as the Asian-American identity, affirmative action and the William Hung phenomenon.
Students discussed the identity crisis of many Asian Americans during the first panel, "This is what I stand for: The Emerging Political Voice of the Asian-American Student."
"I never viewed myself as both Filipino and American - I always chose between being Filipino or American; never both," Mark Abinsay, freshman, said. "But these events allowed me to grasp the concept of being Filipino-American more, and I realized the identity I've been looking for."

WOMEN OF COLOR HEALTH DATA BOOK FACTORS AFFECTING THE HEALTH OF WOMEN OF COLOR Asian Americans Although health issues for Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans often are analyzed jointly, in this fact book the groups are separated. Native Pacific Islanders are considered Native Americans and are discussed with American Indians/Alaska Natives. (See discussion of Pacific Islanders in section on Native Americans.) Asian populations are discussed together. This change is made because native Pacific Islanders are only 5 percent of the Asian and Pacific Islander total and often have health outcomes more akin to those of American Indians/Alaska Natives than to Asian subpopulations. In addition, native Pacific Islanders are not immigrants to the United States as are Asian populations. Thus, an effort has been made throughout to disaggregate Asians from Pacific Islanders whenever possible, and to display data for the groups separately. Aggregate statistics for Asians and Pacific Islanders are used, however, when they are the best available. Asian Americans are immigrants to the United States (and their descendants) from more than 20 countries who speak more than 100 different languages. They come from places such as China, India, Japan, the Philippines, Korea, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand and represent more than 60 different ethnicities (22). In 1990, the largest subpopulations (in descending order) were persons of Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Asian Indian, Korean, and Southeast Asian ancestry. By the year 2000, Filipinos are projected to be the largest Asian subpopulation, followed by Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese Americans, in that order (120).

Capitol clout grows for Asian Americans
Concerns include immigrant rights, health care, hate crimes.
By Aurelio Rojas Bee Capitol Bureau
Backed by a dozen Filipino veterans who fought in the U.S. Army during World War II, the Chinese American assemblyman spoke of how gratifying it was to have the support of his Japanese American colleague. What bound Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, and Alan Nakanishi, a Republican from Lodi, was their opposition to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's budget-cutting proposal to eliminate a program that provides about 1,700 surviving Filipino veterans with about $225 a month.

Asian-Americans represent the highest percentage of entrepreneurs of any ethnic or racial group in America, and are in the fastest-growing area of the U.S. economy today. According to the U.S. Economic Census 1996 and Asian-American Almanac, there are over 603,000 Asian-owned business in the United States, with $100 billion in total billings. These businesses represent great opportunities for business-to-business marketers. There are two key categories that are naturals: telecommunications and fin ancial services. While some companies are doing a good job at serving these needs for Asian-Americans, others are largely ignoring this market. What are the opportunities and challenges of serving this community? We'll address that in a moment. First, a bit of background. A DIVERSE GROUP Contrary to popular perception, Asians are not homogenous any more than Europeans are. Asians are a highly diverse group comprised of people from different countries and cultures, and speaking different languages. There are six nationalities that constitute approximately 85% of Asians in this country (in order of population): Chinese, Filipino, Asian Indian, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese. And these are the top six segments of entrepreneurs in the United States:

National Women's Health Network Fact Sheet Breast Cancer and Asian American Women Incidence Statistics documenting the breast cancer incidence in Asian American women living in the United States have only recently been published. For Chinese women the reported incidence was 55 per 100,000 women, for Japanese women 82 per 100,000 women, for Filipino women 73 per 100,000 women, Korean women 29 per 100,000,Vietnamese women 38 per 100,000, and Native Hawaiian women 106 per 10,000. In comparison, White women had a reported incidence of 92 per 100,000 women. Mortality The mortality rate in Asian-American women is the lowest of the main ethnic populations in the United States. Asian-American women have a combined mortality rate of 13 deaths for every 100,000 women. This compares to a rate of 27 out of every 100,000 White women, and 15 out of 100,000 Latina women who die from the disease. Among Asian-Americans, the mortality ranged from 7 per 100,000 for Korean and Southeast Asian women, to 12 for Filipino and 13 for Japanese women. For Chinese women the deaths were 11 per 100,000. The lower number of Asian-American women who die of breast cancer reflects the lower incidence of the disease, as cited above.

"Asian American," Part 2.
In response to a recent posting by Eileen Tabios, who writes, in part: I'm sure the sunny professor doesn't realize he struck a nerve with me (or perhaps he does). You see, prior to tending my grape vines (all one stalk of them), I was fairly active in the Asian American literary scene.....but what I noticed is that much of my work never gets classified as "Asian American" or "Filipino American" literature. Why? Because I don't write the kind of stuff that has mostly become classified (as Timothy has observed) as Asian American works by referencing biography, food and ethnicity. I am not the only "Asian American" poet who's ranted before at this practice. I really didn't mean to strike a nerve though I realize that now but my initial hesitation to classify her as such was partly in reaction to what Tim Yu wrote earlier. That is, I didn't want to simply pigeonhole her poetry as "Pinoy poetry," as poems (or as a blog) that is only brought up within that Asian context. (Not that that's a bad thing, but I think the readers know what I mean.) Both Asian Americans (and well-meaning non-Asian editors, etc., out to "diversify" their anthologies) are complicit in fashioning particular tired images, narratives, paradigms, and so on that keep Asian Americans in safe, domesticated categories.
