The term Asian-American was first used in the 1960s by activists who disliked the term Oriental, saying that it was derogatory and colonialist. Historian, Yuji Ichioka, popularized the expression and today, the term Asian-American is commonly used. In the U.S. Census, the word "Asian" refers to people having origins in the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent. It also means that groups are not limited to nationalities but include ethnic terms. So Asian-Americans are Americans of Asian origin. They include sub-ethnic groups such as Chinese-Americans, Filipino-Americans, Indian-Americans, Vietnamese-Americans, Korean-Americans, and Japanese-Americans etc. We study about their origins and characteristic features in this document.
