October is ✨#FilipinoAmericanHistoryMonth
So here's a crash course on Fil-Am history (because odds are, you've never learned about it)! The US gov't first recognized October as Fil-Am History Month in 2009 to commemorate the first Filipinos to set foot on North American land... all the way back in 1587! They landed in Morro Bay, in what is now California.
Filipinos were in America before America was America!
