Evangeline "Vangie" Canonizado Buell, @FANHS_national President Emerita, spoke @FilipinaWomen's Network - 25 June 2021

"Buffalo soldiers didn't shoot Filipinos," said Vangie, while describing her grandfather's experiences as a Buffalo soldier in the Philippine-American War. She told moving stories about her grandfather who stayed in the Philippines and married her Filipina grandmother. You'll find more stories in Vangie's book, "25 Chickens and a Pig for a Bride: Growing up in a Filipino Immigrant Family," available at EastWind Books in Berkeley, California. https://www.asiabookcenter.com/store/p223/Twenty-Five_Chickens_and_a_Pig_for_a_Bride%3A_Growing_up_in_a_Filipino_Immigrant_Family.html Vangie also showed photos from her Acadia publication, "Filipinos in the East Bay."
