Hello everyone! It has been quite some time since my last post on this site, but I am so glad to be back! This time around I wanted to take a break from fashion in history, and connect back to my roots!
For this cycle, I will be researching the question, "how did the colonization and invasion of countless countries into the Philippines, effect its culture, beliefs and ideals as a nation?". The main reason as to why I chose this topic is so that I could have a better understanding of where my culture came from. Being Filipino has shaped who I am today and I would love to get to know where these beliefs came from.
The main topics I plan to cover are:
- Early roots of the first peoples occupying the Philippines
- Early Asian influences
- Spanish colonization
- US occupancy
- Japanese occupancy during WW2
- Hukbalahap insurgency
Please don’t be afraid to tell me what you think and I hope to see you all again in my first research post!
