The Istorya-DC 2016 Symposium
About Istorya-DC - "Istorya" is a Filipino word for "story." Istorya-DC is an annual, educational gathering to share the histories, stories, and research about DC area Filipinos and their communities. Istorya-DC is held during the month of October in celebration of Filipino American History month and Archives month. It is free and open to the public, and is supported by the Rita M. Cacas Foundation (RMCF) and other Istorya-DC symposium sponsors.
The Istorya-DC 2016 Symposium was dedicated to the memories of two prominent DC Filipinos.
- Max Cacas (1954-2015) was a long-time Filipino American radio broadcaster, who was also one of the Istorya-DC 2015 speakers who shared practical skills for conducting oral history interviews.
- Joe Montano (1968-2016) was a well-known activist in the DC Filipino American community, as well as a close aide to Senator/Vice Presidential nominee, Tim Kaine (D-Va.).
