Atin E01: Locating the Filipino

Where is the Filipino?

In the premiere episode of ATIN: Stories from the Collection, we’re taking on the question: who and where is the Filipino?

Locating the Philippines is a simple task; locating the Filipino is not. Even before Western influence and colonial rule, the archipelago was inhabited by different polities and was a meeting point of ancient Asian cultures and trade. Defined by diversity and transit, is it even possible to determine who the Filipino is?


ATIN is an original production of the Ayala Foundation Arts and Culture Division made up of the Ayala Museum and Filipinas Heritage Library. The series tells the story of the Filipino through images and videos of Ayala Museum's archaeological, ethnographic, fine arts, historical, and numismatic collections and FHL's archival and documentary holdings.
