The erasure of Indigenous communities and stories have been at the forefront of Western globalization. In a society that whitewashes and homogenizes cultures, Untold Parallels examines the differences and similarities within the colonial histories of the so-called Philippines and Filipinx-American diaspora, and colonized people Indigenous to “North America.”
Since the beginning of US colonization, our country has been in a constant state of criticality, civil unrest and the sharing of misconstrued information; in turn, Indigenous peoples' rich stories and histories are oftentimes dismissed and buried underneath the agenda of those with political power.
In honor of Indigenous Peoples Day (in the US) and Filipinx-American History Month, Untold Parallels amplifies our stories in order to display and protect the intersections of our shared grief, joy, resilience and colonizer.
