Now, I know what some of you are saying: How come your website is not written in Filipino, eh nasa Pilipinas tayo? Let me address that once and for all. FilipiKnow, as a matter of fact, was originally established with foreigners as well as Filipinos born and raised abroad in mind.

In other words, we want FilipiKnow to become a portal for all people–Filipino or not–to discover what it’s like to be a Filipino and therefore appreciate our own unique history and culture. Imagine us as an English-speaking tour guide in an interactive online Filipino museum. 

From its inception in early 2013, FilipiKnow has grown exponentially, thanks to our fantastic readers who regularly visit our website to learn something new. After all, great information is an incredible conversation-starter.

Our goal is to make learning Philippine history and culture more engaging, especially for the youth. Just like how your smart kabarkada shares information that makes all your friends say “WOW.”

Got anything to share? We’d like to hear from you! If you have topic suggestions, violent reactions, or anything awesome to share, kindly send it to us and we’ll do our best to reply. ASAP.

PILIPINO AKO: PAGPAPAHALAGA SA ATING KASAYSAYAN. Hindi natin lubos mauunawaan ang kasalukuyan kung hindi natin aalamin ang ating nakaraan. Bagama’t mas nagiging madali ang pagkalap ng impormasyon dahil sa makabagong teknolohiya, tila unti unti nang nawawala ang tunay na pagpapahalaga sa ating kasaysayan.

Panoorin natin ang kanyang kwento.
