AAPI Heritage Initiative Launch

While the National Park Service will be looking to identify a representative selection of AAPI sites associated with important events and people in our history as part of the initiative, we need the expertise of communities and individuals across the country to make the initiative a success. We want to hear from you about the places important in your communities; places that have local, state, or national importance in AAPI and American history.

We also encourage community members and organizations to nominate places to the National Register of Historic Places and as National Historic Landmarks. The nomination process involves identifying the significance of a place and evaluating it according to both specific historic criteria and physical integrity.

The AAPI theme study will provide both historic context and preservation roadmap for future site nominations for both the NHLs and National Register of Historic Places. Owner approval for these sites is necessary before nominations can be prepared.

We have assembled an online toolkit that you may find helpful. It's illustrated with examples from the Latino Heritage Initiative and is relevant to everyone interested in the preservation process. You can find this online: http://www.nps.gov/latino/toolkit.html.
