Award winning film “Honor Thy Mother” tells the untold story of Bainbridge Island’s Indipino community.

Descended from Aboriginal mothers and Filipino fathers, the Indipinos reflect on their lives growing up mixed race with no sense of belonging in either culture. Their stories reveal the effect historical trauma had on their childhood as the children of mothers who attended Canadian Indian residential schools. Join us for a screening of the film and a chance to ask questions of filmmaker Lucy Ostrander and executive producer Gina Corpuz.

History Café is produced as a partnership between MOHAI and HistoryLink. Join MOHAI and HistoryLink on the third Wednesday of the month for a discussion about local history—both popular and obscure—and discover something new.
