Fiesta Alaskero, October 5th. 6pm-9:30pm. University of Alaska Student Union
By popular demand, Fiesta Alaskero was brought back to celebrate Filipino American History Month in 2012. A blend of entertainment and education, performers and audience members commemorated the work of those who came before us, celebrated the talented and dedicated Filipino Americans in our community today, and empowered ourselves to continue the work our manongs and manangs for future generations.To see videos and photographs of the event, please click on this link.

Filipino American History Month presentations to Anchorage Schools
This year we were invited to teach elementary and middle school students an introduction to Filipino American history. Each class was unique but shared one common reaction: every student was excited to learn more about Filipino American history and, hopefully, more aware of the role they play in making history.
