" We are not born women of color. We become women of color. In order to become women of color, we would need to become fluent in each others’ histories, to resist and unlearn an impulse to claim first oppression, most-devastating oppression, one-of-a-kind oppression, defying comparison oppression. We would have to unlearn an impulse that allows mythologies about each other to replace knowing about one another. We would need to cultivate a way of knowing in which we direct our social, cultural, psychic, and spiritually marked attention on each other. We cannot afford to cease yearning for each others’ company. "

Happy 2nd Birthday to the Pinoy-Culture blog! :D

It has been a good two years since the blog started back on March 22, 2012.

Throughout the last two years of running this blog I have learned new things not just from my own research but from others. I have also met some of the most awesome kababayans on here, some whom I have also personally met and some I still would love to.

The blog has grown and gained so many followers both Pilipin@ and those who aren’t but who are interested in our diverse culture and history. I hope the blog has made it a resource for those who want to learn more about our cultures and history and who we are as a people.

I thank each and every one of my followers both old and new for all your support and I look forward for another year of running this blog.

Now onto the real announcement. :)

As a thanks for all your support and to celebrate the blogs 2nd anniversary I am doing a giveaway to 3 lucky followers.

Each winner will receive one of the following Pilipin@/Pilipin@-American books of their choice.

- Filipino Tattoos: From Ancient to Modern by Lane Wilcken

- The Forgotten Children of Maui by Lane Wilcken

- Babaylan: Filipinos and the Call of the Indigenous by Leny Mendoza Strobel

- Way of the Ancient Healer by Virgil Apostol.

- Back from the Crocodile’s Belly: Philippine Babaylan Studies and the Struggle for Indigenous Memory by S. Lily Mendoza and Leny Mendoza Strobel

It doesn’t matter what book you choose and if 2 or say all 3 winners choose the same book to receive, they will all receive the same book.

Now how can you enter?

1.) You must be following the Pinoy-Culture blog. Anyone who starts following the blog after this post will not be qualified for the giveaway.

2.) You must reblog this post onto your main blog, no side blogs. You can reblog this post as many times as you like to try to increase your chances of winning.

3.) All winners must have a valid mailing address so I can send the book. No, P.O. boxes. All personal information will be kept confidential and private.

4.) You must reply back to me within a week after I post the winners of the giveaway on April 30. I will be both making the announcement and sending a notification to each winner. If you don’t reply back I will randomly choose another winner.

5.) Unfortunately, due to Amazon sometimes limiting international shipping in some countries for some products, at the moment only those residing in the U.S. will be able to receive the package. If anyone knows a way around this, seeing as far as I know they can’t ship the books outside the U.S., do let me know. As for right now though only U.S. residents are eligible for this giveaway.

And thats about it. Again the giveaway will end on April 30 at 10pm EDT. The winners will be randomly select ed and announced the following day on May 1.

Good luck! :)
