• How can I get more in touch with the Filipino culture?

Participate in it, learn and read on history both pre-colonial and colonial and up to now. Try looking at and learning about our native scripts like Baybayin, Kulitan, Tagbanwa, Hanunó’o, & Buhid and practice writing them with words, (this also helps in learning words and phrases). If there are Filipino cultural groups near you join it. If they perform traditional dances and music that’s even better and you should try learning it as well. Try asking your parents to start teaching you some Tagalog and if they happen to speak another language ask them to teach you. Try learning how to cook Filipino foods, learn about current issues in the Philippines, learn about our tattooing culture and our Filipino martial arts, Arnis, Eskrima, Kali, etc.
