October is Filipino American History Month!

Let us celebrate the many historic and current contributions of Filipinos to our nation and to Oregon.




Posted by: raesantos | September 6, 2016

Please come to our next quarterly meeting on September 24, 2016


In 2015, FANHS held its symposium, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 4th wave, with CFAA biennial celebration on September 5 and a 3-month display at the Salem Multicultural Institute.
In 2016, Jimmy and Dory Lim of PACCO are bringing Philippines HISTORAMA to Oregon on October 29 to celebrate the Filipino American History Month. We are delighted to remember where the 4th “wavers” and other immigrants came from and the colorful history we left behind.  JOIN US IN THIS CELEBRATION!!!
This 2-1/2 hour song and dance show is a must-see for those who need and want to learn about Philippine history and the events that developed the multicultural value system brought by Filipino immigrants to America.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the building of the future Philippine Asian Cultural Center.
For tickets to the Philippines Historama slow on October 29th, 2016, visit
