Ethnic Heritage in Mississippi

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the story of Filipinas in south Mississippi. The Filipino community in south Mississippi is largely a Filipina community, comprised mainly of first-generation Filipina immigrant women married to white American men. Scattered throughout rural Mississippi, these women managed to forge ties across distance, dialects, and provincial differences to create a community that would initially provide a social network, and eventually establish critical systems of support.

Keywords:   Filipino immigrants, Filipino communities, military families, Filipinas, women’s network, social network, support system
