Thank you for your interest in the Houston, Texas Chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS-HTX).

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 student 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, document and share them to future generations.  We will also work towards integrating these facts into American mainstream education.
