Biographical / Historical

The Filipino American National Historical Society - Houston Chapter was established in 2015, and represents the 32nd chapter of the national organization. The mission of FANHS-HTX is to promote understanding, education, enlightenment, appreciation, and enrichment through the identification, gathering, preservation, and dissemination of the history and culture of Filipino Americans in the United States.

The first documented presence of Filipinos in the continental United States was in October of 1587 in Morro Bay, California. The first permanent Filipino community in the US was established in 1763 in St. Malo, Louisiana. Filipino Americans have made significant contributions to the arts, business, education, science, health care, technology, government, and many other fields in the centuries that they have participated in the life of the country. The national and local chapters of the organization seek to share this history by conducting research and studies; gathering, promoting, and disseminating published works on Filipino American history; providing a repository for research and gathered materials; creating exhibits; and promoting and holding forums and public programs.
