2022 Filipino American HISTORY Month is in October!


Welcome to Filipino American History Month where we educate, meditate, and reflect on how FAHM affects those in the diaspora and the Fil-Am community.

In October 1992 was the first time that Filipino American History Month (FAHM) was celebrated in the United States – a year after FANHS passed a proclamation (spearheaded by Fred Cordova). Since then, FAHM has been celebrated annually all over the country – with initiatives by FANHS chapters, local community nonprofit groups, government organizations, and college student organizations. In 2009, U.S. Congress declared October as FAHM, and in 2015, President Obama celebrated the first FAHM at the White House. 

Below is a list of events going on in Houston, Texas and virtually where you can become more aware and empowered to celebrate this long time tradition and support Filipino American National Historical Society.

In addition to the live beats, another layer is added to this experience by harnessing our vibrations from the movement and celebrating Filipino American History Month with food, vendors, and fun.
