Category : History , Uncategorized

The Filipino American National Historical Society Rio Grande (FANHS RG) participated at the first Filipino Culture Week (April 10-13, 2017) at the University of New Mexico Gallup on April 11, 2017.   FANHS RG members were guest speakers:  Pearl King who discussed about Migration of Filipinos to the US and ultimately to NM, Tessie Greenfield talked about the Philippine – New Mexico Connection and played the kulintang with some student volunteers, Cris Underwood about his journey as an adopted child, and Al David, author of The End of the Trail, a 96-year old Bataan veteran.  Mr. David was honored by some veterans before his speech.

Thanks to Dr. Shirley Heying, Karla and Jonathan for inviting us.  Also to Agaton, a trained Filipino chef from Arizona for serving a variety of Filipino food.
