As a history PhD student, I am deeply passionate about collecting and studying Philippine Hokkien-language oral histories. My work focuses on the United States colonial period in the Philippines, and a key part of my method is examining how sources in different languages reveal and conceal certain kinds of perspectives and information about the past. I am excited about The Chinoy Archives because it is preserving the voices and memories of our Chinese Filipino families and communities.
