Merry Christmas
4 generations of the Tabaco Tribe have been here in NYC since 1946. This book, authored by a very dear friend Kevin Nadal, will document that since we're featured in it. Come 3/30/15, the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) Metro NY Chapter will be selling copies of it to raise funds for our upcoming Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS)National Conference to be held at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in the summer of 2016. I hope everyone will get at least one copy for themselves now available and that you will make arrangements to attend the Conference in our hometown...
After the Spanish-American War in 1898, many Filipinos immigrated to New York City, mostly as students, enrolling at local institutions like Columbia University and New York University. Some arrived via Ellis Island as early as 1915, while Filipino military servicemen and Navy seafarers settled in New York after both World Wars I and II. After the Asian Immigration Act of 1965, many Filipinos came as professionals (e.g., nurses, physicians, and engineers) and formed settlements in various ethnic enclaves throughout the five boroughs of New York. Over the years, Filipinos have contributed significantly to New York arts and culture through Broadway theater, fashion, music, film, comedy, hip-hop, poetry, and dance. Filipino New Yorkers have also been successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, community leaders, and politicians, and some, sadly, were victims of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks.

Perhaps you sang a lovely song
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console out hearts,
We thank you so much whatever the part.

Venancia C. Tabaco

Ang hindi marunong tumingin sa pinanggalingan ay di makakarating sa paroroonan.
He who does not know to look where he came from will never get to his destination.
