Compared to other Asian groups, Vietnamese in the U.S. feel the most connected to their cultural heritage. Asians overall stay connected to their cultural heritage mainly through language and food but this varies by segment. Indians tend to connect via music, religious services and festivals. Koreans and Chinese connect via TV programs most and Filipinos are least language dependant among all Asian groups.
In general, over three-quarters of Asians strongly identify themselves with their own country of origin first rather than the umbrella term of Asian American. Over half (58%) of Asian Americans attend local cultural events or festivals. This number skews much higher for Indians and Vietnamese.
