REMEMBERING OUR MANONGS Sonoma County’s Filipino History A documentary film that explores the history of Filipino immigrants in Sonoma County during the first half of the last century will be shown at various Sonoma County venues in November 2008. Most of the Filipinos who came to California in the early 1900s were farm workers, including those who came as wards of the state when the U.S. took possession of the Philippines following the Philippine-American War. By the 1920s, about 100 of the early pioneers, most of them men, stayed because of Sonoma County’s abundance of year-round farm work. Sadly, all of the early pioneers have passed away. The film will feature interviews with family members of the early pioneers, descendants of ranchers, and other key figures. According to Project Director Leny Strobel, “Filipino American immigrant history is vastly underrepresented in our educational curriculum and historical archives. It’s essential that recent Filipino immigrants recognize the important path that was cleared for them by their predecessors. It is also important for the community at-large to get to know this history.” The events are sponsored by the California Council for the Humanities and the Filipino American National Historical Society of Sonoma County. A panel discussion and reception will be held at each event. All events are free and open to the public. Panel discussion: Sharing the Filipino American Experience in K-12 Curriculum Arlen Agapinan, Director of 7-12 Curriculum, Santa Rosa School District; Cheryl Boden, Sonoma County educator, daughter of Manong Robert Echelar; Allyson Tintiangco Cubales, Assistant Professor, Asian American Studies, San Francisco State and founder director of Pin@y Educational Partnership; Miriam Hutchins, Project Director, North Bay International Studies Project, Sonoma State University and Raul Pasamonte, Outreach Advisor, Student Services, Sonoma State University will discuss the importance of developing and nurturing K-12 curriculum that includes the Filipino American experience as part of an inclusive multicultural education. Moderator: Jeannette Anglin, daughter of Manong Nicanor Tipon and former Principal and Director of Secondary and Alternative Schools for Santa Rosa City Schools
