Conference Information:  http://fanhs-national.org/filam/th_event/17th-biennial-fanhs-conference/

.
Filipino American National Historical Society’s Mission:  To promote understanding, education, enlightenment, appreciation and enrichment through the identification, gathering, preservation and dissemination of the history and culture of Filipino Americans in the United States.

The Filipino American National Historical Society is a community-based organization whose mission is “…to preserve, document, and present Filipino American history and to support scholarly research and artistic works which reflect that rich past…” The national office and archives is housed in Seattle, operating year-round to lend expertise and support to twenty-seven chapters across the United States and is recognized as the primary informational resource on Filipino Americans for:

  •   community organizations
  •   primary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities
  •   local and national museums and historical associations
  •   independent authors, playwrights, and filmmakers
  •   teachers, students, and scholars

Since 1987, FANHS has sponsored national conferences (later ratified as a biennial event) where community members of all ages and from all walks of life gather to share and present research, network with other Filipino Americans, and honor those who have produced ground-breaking innovative work in the field of historical research and analysis.

Past projects include the award-winning video Filipino Americans Discovering Their Past for the Future; the renowned pictorial essay Filipinos: Forgotten Asian Americans; and various regional publications and photo exhibits.

The FANHS national network, comprised of 30 chapters throughout the United States, was founded by Dr. Dorothy Laigo Cordova and Dr. Fred Cordova in 1982.

Initiatives

  • Research with documentation of the Filipino presence as early as 1587 and of Filipinos’ permanent settlement as early as 1763 in the Continental U.S.
  • Membership including 30 chapters throughout the nation: Oregon, Hampton Roads in Virginia, Seattle, Metropolitan New York, Midwest, New England, Alaska and Sacramento Delta, San Francisco, East Bay, Santa Clara Valley, Vallejo, California Central Coast, Stockton, Fresno, Los Angeles, Monterey Bay, San Diego, Central Valley in California, Rio Grande in New Mexico, Wisconsin, Michigan, St. Louis and Philadelphia.
  • Public Programming including photo exhibits, oral history, lectures, symposiums, forums, journal writing and university/college credit courses.
  • Archival Collections in the establishment of the National Pinoy Archives in Seattle (1987).
  • Historical Site Designations including San Malo in Louisiana and Morro Bay in California.
  • Public Service including consultations, referrals, student internships and sharing of historical materials by volunteer national staff.
  • Documentaries, evidenced by the major award-winning video, “Filipino Americans: Discovering Their Past for the Future” (1994).
  • Annual observance of Filipino American History Month in October nationwide.
