Honor Thy Mother (31 min. 2021)

Survivors of Residential Schools, young women from Canada, Washington and Alaska migrated in the 1940s to Bainbridge Island near Seattle to pick berries for Japanese American farmers on the traditional territory of the Suquamish people. Many fell in love and married Filipino immigrants who worked on the farms when the Japanese American farmers were interned.


They settled on the Island to raise their mixed-heritage (Indigenous mother and Filipino father) Indipino children. The voices of the Indipino children, now elders, are integral in the storytelling of their mothers’ courage and resilience marrying Asian men and risking disenfranchisement from their 19 different tribes.
