Artist Sean “Hula” Yoro (@the_hula) first made waves in the art world by combining his loves of surfing and painting. 👋 In his first-ever mural series, he paddled out to paint along ocean walls. “There is rarely one process I use, but I enjoy the new challenges every site brings,” says Sean.
“Since the start of my career, I have always drawn my inspiration back to my Hawaiian upbringing in the unique melting pot of island culture,” says the artist from Kahalu’u, Hawaii. “One value that has always stuck with me no matter where I have moved to is the term we call ‘kuleana.’ It is the responsibility we are taught as kids to know your role and responsibility in society for the better of your community.”

“Cooking has always been a conversation between my own lifestyle and the culture I’m from,” says food photographer and recipe developer Hannah Che (@hannah__chia), who has lived all over the world — from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Guangdong, China. “Honoring my heritage means connecting the food I make to the past, but also using it as a conversation to explore my own identity and tell my own story.”
For Hannah, #APAheritagemonth helps celebrate the diversity of Asian Pacific American people’s cultures and origins. “But it shouldn’t just be this month,” she says. “There are so many incredible things that Asian Pacific Americans are doing out there that really should be more visible year round.”

Choreographers Shivani Bhagwan (@shivanibhagwan) and Chaya Kumar (@chayakumar) are the brains behind BFunk (@bfunk). “BFunk stands for the two styles of dance that we teach: BhangraFunk and BollyFunk,” explains Shivani. “It’s a fusion between elements of our western upbringing and our eastern roots,” explains Chaya. “Our heritage is woven through every fiber of our work. Dance is not a recreation in India; it’s a part of our culture. It’s a means of celebration. It’s a means of storytelling. It’s a means of communication.”
According to Shivani, “#APAHeritageMonth is wonderful because it promotes education, drives conversation and builds awareness, and that is the birthplace for growth.”

For the spinach, blanch in a separate pot (bring water to a boil and throw in spinach for one minute until wilted), then rinse the spinach under cold running water, squeeze into a ball, and cut the ball several times.
•
In a nonstick pan, cook the tofu until browned on both sides, then remove from pan.
Next, sauté the onion, mushroom, bell pepper, and carrot together for 2 minutes until softened, then add in green onions and cook for another minute.

Finally, add in the noodles to the pan, the minced garlic, soy sauce, sugar, and sesame oil. Taste and add salt as desired. Toss until well combined, and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve warm..

Crispy baked tofu coated in a homemade teriyaki sauce by @hannah__chia 🔥 great over ramen noodles or steamed rice!
Who here lives Asian food? Did we mention that this dish was featured on @instagram in May in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, celebrated every May in the United States! Well done Hannah! #APAheritagemonth

Recipe:
1 14 oz block extra-firm tofu
1-2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tbsp olive oil
Sauce:
4 tbsp tamari or gf soy sauce
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar
1/2 tsp maple syrup
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
•
Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Cut tofu into slices and then 1-inch cubes, and then place in an even layer on a clean towel. Place another towel on the top and put something heavy on top, pressing for about 10 minutes until dry. Toss tofu cubes in a bowl with the cornstarch and oil until evenly coated. Arrange on parchment paper on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, until crispy.
•
For the teriyaki sauce, add all ingredients to a small pot and whisk together until smooth. Bring to a boil and continue whisking until sauce thickens to desired consistency. Taste and adjust. If sauce is too thick, thin with additional water. Toss the baked tofu with a few spoonfuls of the sauce in a bowl until completely coated. Serve over rice or noodles with vegetables of your choice.
•
Notes: 
If you double the sauce recipe it makes a lot of teriyaki sauce; enough to cover tofu and have leftover to glaze veggies/serve with rice..

Chances are, I’m prob one of the few minority accounts you follow for design. So in case you didn’t know, this month is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. I’ve had some questions asking my ethnicity. I’m Laotian! Ava was two here dressed in her traditional Laotian outfit 🤗. How cute is that?
.
I didn’t appreciate my background growing up bc I didn’t feel a sense of belonging when my family came to the US. I was embarrassed by how others would perceive our accent, the smell of our food or how little we had financially. For those that don’t know, my family fled our war torn country and lived in three refugee camps before going through the vetting process to arrive in the US when I was 7. Who would’ve thought I would go on to have a college degree and work for a fortune 50 company??
.
My work had an amazing event where I got to hear four powerful stories about belonging. I held back tears as I was able to relate. These stories are not about who had it better or worse but rather to share our vulnerabilities. We all have a story. It’s a way for us to have empathy for others. I hope you all feel proud to share yours as well as take the time to listen to others. #apaheritagemonth.
