Every year in April, the U.S. recognizes Arab Heritage Month to celebrate and elevate the rich contributions, heritage, and culture of the Arab American community. From music to trends, fashion, and cuisine, the impact of the Arab community in the U.S. is vibrant and far-reaching.
On TikTok, our Arab American community highlights culture and creativity through sharing stories, highlighting history, passing along recipes, and showcasing music and dance from the Arab community. This month, we'll spotlight these incredible stories through #ArabTikTok and LIVE programming that brings the community together for continued connection, education, and celebration.
TikTok's #ArabTikTok community is thriving, with creators, commenters, and LIVE streamers alike showcasing Arab culture on the daily to the tune of billions of views. Videos made under #TikTokArab have gathered over 25 billion video views, with #Arab at just over 26 billion and #ArabTikTok collecting more than 4 billion video views. And, with beloved creators from the community like culinary master @thegoldenbalance, science creator @dominic, and all-around queens of relatable content @marynouraa and @itsmetinx, Arab American creators continue to raise the bar and change the game on TikTok.
Throughout April, we'll not only celebrate Arab heritage, but we'll also continue to elevate Arab voices, stories, and perspectives. The TikTok community will have access to a month of in-app experiences and LIVE programming that highlights the unique culture and community that make up #ArabTikTok.
We hope you'll join us as we celebrate Arab Heritage Month and all the ways #ArabTikTok has enriched the TikTok experience. Stay tuned for TikTok LIVE streams all through April, and keep your eye on the Discover page for the latest on programmed streams and in-app experiences. Until then, please enjoy some of our favorite videos from the #ArabTikTok community.
