This month we engage in Native American Heritage Month and Filipino History Month.





What is Filipino American History Month?

"The celebration of Filipino American History Month in October commemorates the first recorded presence of Filipinos in the continental United States, which occurred on October 18, 1587, when “Luzones Indios” came ashore from the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Esperanza and landed at what is now Morro Bay, California. In 2009, U.S. Congress recognized October as Filipino American History Month in the United States. Various states, counties, and cities in the U.S. have established proclamations and resolutions declaring observance of Filipino American History Month. The late Dr. Fred Cordova, along with his wife, FANHS Founder Dr. Dorothy Laigo Cordova, first introduced October as Filipino American History Month in 1992 with a resolution from the FANHS National Board of Trustees."

Why Is It Called Filipino American HISTORY Month?

Tatlong Bagsak: Combating Anti-Blackness in Filipina/x/o Communities (Full Video)

Description “Tatlong Bagsak for Black Lives: Combating Anti-Blackness in Filipina/x/o Communities” is a symposium presented by Pin@y Educational Partnerships, Balay Kreative, Pinayista, Asian Solidarity Collective, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, and Asian American & Pacific Islander Student Services. The goal of this event is to provide a space to discuss the following questions: 1) ISANG BAGSAK: How is Filipina/x/o freedom tied to Black Liberation? 2) DALAWANG BAGSAK: How can Filipinas/xes/os be in solidarity for Black Lives? 3) TATLONG BAGSAK: How can our Filipina/x/o community continue to spread this critical dialogue? The symposium aims to tackle these questions through two panels with leading thinkers and activists who will provide us with research, experiences, stories, and a language to use when discussing anti-Blackness. The last part of the symposium is devoted to providing an opportunity to train and support to leaders, educators, and those who want to bring this dialogue back to their organizations, communities, and families. This will be in an interactive workshop format guided by activists and teachers in the Filipina/x/o community. There will be a community lesson plan, resources, and strategies that will be provided at the workshop. We hope that by spreading this dialogue, we can contribute to combating anti-Blackness in our community.
