IU’s Asian American Association (AAA) hosted the 18th annual Tate of Asia celebration in the IU auditorium on Friday, April 8.

This event commemorated Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, which honors the first Japanese immigrants to the U.S. and the completion of the transcontinental railroad by Chinese workers.

Although the heritage month does not officially start until May, the AAA hopes to increase student participation by holding the Taste in April every year.

Free Asian culinary delights from restaurants in the Bloomington area and a show featuring acts from the IU Ballroom Formation Dance Team, Bindi-Ana Girls Club, pleased students of all nationalities who have an interest in the Asian culture.
