you know about 20% of Filipinos have some Chinese ancestry?
President Corazon Aquino, Cardinal Jaime Sin, and national hero
Jose Rizal are some of the more famous "Tsinoys", or Chinese
Filipinos. As the Philippines is so close to Fujian province,
Chinese influence in Filipino culture dates back centuries and
is as ubiquitous as pancit and lumpia. The first
Spanish-established Chinatown was the Parian, which later
became Binondo. These Chinatowns survive through massacres,
revolutions, wars, and martial law.
This Powerpoint presentation is an
overview of this fascinating history. AND, this is an
opportunity for us to share a Filipino "merienda" (snack) and
just be with people who love history.
Susie Ling was born
in Taiwan and raised in Los Banos, Laguna. She is Associate
Professor of History at Pasadena City College.
This program is co-sponsored by
the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California and the
Filipino American National Historical Society, Los Angeles
This program is free and
