Event Description:

Did you know that Filipino sailors landed on American soil in the 1600's? That the first Filipino settlements in America were in the bayous and marshes of Louisiana? That more than 7000 Filipinos fought in World War II? That there are more than 2.7 million people of Filipino descent living and thriving in the United States? What is America like for Filipino Immigrants? What have they contributed to America?

Singgalot–The Ties that Bind: Filipinos in America from Colonial Subjects to Citizens tells their stories. The exhibition details the rich history of Filipinos in America, honors early immigrant pioneers and the determined generations after them, and addresses the community and culture of Filipino Americans through historically significant photographs. Singgalot celebrates the vital contribution made by Filipino Americans to Pacific trade, military service, the arts, and civil rights activism.
