We have been here a lot longer than you think…

The history of Filipinos in Texas goes a lot further back than most would think.  From the nurses to the veterans to the first Filipino at Rice University.  We believe we are a part of American history and deserve to be recognized for our contributions to Texas history.  We look to uncover these stories, share them, and work towards integrating these facts into American mainstream education.
