Arab American Heritage Month: Home

Arab American Heritage Month

Arab American Heritage Month celebrates the culture and contributions of Arab Americans to the United States. In celebration, these resources focus on the history and culture of Arab Americans as well as the history and culture of people from countries in the Arab world, in recognition that it is this history and culture which helps to contribute to Arab Americans’ unique blend of experiences.

"This month, we recognize National Arab American Heritage Month and honor the contributions of this diverse community to America. Immigrants with origins from the Arab world have been arriving to the United States since before our country’s independence and have contributed to our nation’s advancements in science, business, technology, foreign policy, and national security" (U.S. Department of State, 2022).
