Created on March 22, 2012, this blog is dedicated to the rich and diverse Philippine cultures and it's people. You will find here pictures of the indigenous, music, dances, baybayin art, places in the Philippines, tattoos, animistic beliefs, myths and legends, deities, food, martial arts, and everything that makes us Pilipin@, as well as our fellow Pin@ys from all over the world.

Introducing the Faces of the Philippines Series.
So one of the blogs new series is the Faces of the Philippines Series.
Reason why I decided on starting this series is to showcase the rich diversity of our country and people.
We as Pilipin@s are not a homogeneous group of people. Before the Spaniards arrived we had our own communities. Even today we have our own ethnic identities and languages. Hailing from a country of 7,107 islands, majority which aren’t even inhabited, we have large number of ethnic groups, languages, and cultures. Some of us hail from the highlands of the Cordillera. Others from the plains of Mindoro. We are Kapampangan, Ivatan, Isneg, Cebuano, Ilocano, Mangyan. Sambal, Tausug, Maranao, Ilonggo, Waray Waray. Akeanon, Ilongot, Mandaya, Tagalog, Yakan, Aeta, Bisaya, Tagbanwa, Bikolano, Bagobo, B’laan, Pangasinan, T’boli, etc.
Many people believe that we as Pilipin@s are all one group of people, when in fact we are far from it. What I hope to do with this series is not only show people how diverse we are but also give a sense of ethnic pride to ones individual ethnic identity within the Pilipin@ diaspora. Because we aren’t just Pilipin@ and shouldn’t just push for a single identity, thus erasing our individual ethnic identities, because we are also one of the many ethnic groups which I listed above and which isn’t nearly a complete list of how many there really are.
