Who ever is from a country that was colonized by Spain is Hispanic,..
the spaniards had a habit of mixing with the locals no matter who they were.
So filipinos are the asian hispanics of Latinasia

From my knowledge, Hispanics are spanish speaking people of Latin America (carribbean, north, central and south america) of Spanish descent.

Well terms like Hispanic or Latino do not specifically refer to race therefore an Asian can be considered hispanic if the individual identifies as such. Filipinos have also been influenced by Spanish/Mexican culture to a certain degree- from their language, food, to religion.

Pinoys are more Americanized rather than Hispanic in terms of culture influence

Probably because americans introduced democracy to our lifestyle

Spain treated us as lowlife indios

Actually, "Hispanic" just means anyone who speaks Spanish. So if a pinoy speaks Spanish, then he is Hispanic technically.

If you talk about ethnically if we are similar to Filipinos, the answer is .....YES.

The people that dominated the America's prior to the European invasion came over from Asia, through the Bearing Straights.

If you look at a lot of Filipinos, they look like Mexicans and Central Americans and vice versa.

i believe so, just read philippine history. here's a short article

Expedition to the Philippines

Statue of López de Legazpi with Datu Sikatuna in Tagbilaran, Bohol, marks the location where the Blood compact alliance took place.López de Legazpi, and his men sailed the Pacific Ocean for 93 days. In 1565, they landed in the Mariana Islands, where they briefly anchored, and replenished their supplies. They fought with Chamorro tribes, and burned several huts.

López de Legazpi's troops arrived in the Philippines, and landed in the shores of Cebu on February 13, 1565. After a brief struggle with hostile natives, they left the island in search of food, water, supplies, and other resources. On February 22, 1565 they reached the island of Samar guided by Datu Urrao. The Spaniards, and their native allies left the island for the nearby islands of Limasawa, and Leyte, guided by Datu Bankaw. Their ships drifted to the coast of Bohol on March 16, 1565 where they befriended with Datu Sikatuna, and Rajah Sigala. López de Legazpi made a blood compact with the native chieftain, Datu Sikatuna, as a sign of friendship between the two people. There, the Spaniards obtained spices, and gold after convincing the natives that they were not Portuguese.

On April 27, 1565, the Spaniards, and their native allies sailed back to Cebu, and attacked the villages of Rajah Tupas, which led to the surrender of the settlements. There, the Spaniards established their colony, naming it "Villa del Santisimo Nombre de Jesús" (Town of the Most Holy Name of Jesus), and "Villa de San Miguel" (Saint Michael's Town).

In 1567, about 2,100 Spaniards, and Mexicans arrived in Cebu under orders of the Spanish king. They established a city, and built the port of Fuerza de San Pedro (Fortress of Saint Peter) which became their outpost for trade with Mexico, and protection from native revolts.

In 1568, López de Legazpi sent one of his men back to Spain to report on his progress. He remained in Cebu, and did not accompany his men during their colonization of Manila because of health problems, and advanced age. Having heard of the rich resources in Luzon, he dispatched two of his Lieutenant-commanders, Martín de Goiti, and Juan de Salcedo, to explore the northern region.


A route of the Spanish expeditions in the Philippines.In late 1569, a force of 300 Spaniards, and several of their native allies, left Cebu and began exploring the Northern regions of the Visayas. The Spaniards discovered the islands of Panay, and Mindoro, where they encountered Chinese sea pirates in the area. Goiti, and Salcedo fought with sea pirates on the eastern coastline of Mindoro, and defeated them on the island, and established their settlements in the region.

The Islamic tribes of the Philippines practiced ancestor, and nature worship, and part of the motivation of the Spaniards was to convert the natives to the Roman Catholic religion. Aside from baptizing the natives, and giving them Christian names, the islands were renamed to "Filipinas" in honor of Felipe II de España (Philip II of Spain).

On May 8, 1570, they arrived in Manila Bay. There, they were welcomed by the natives. Goiti's soldiers camped there for a few weeks, while forming an alliance with the Muslim tribal chief, Rajah Sulaiman III. On May 24, 1570, after disputes and hostility had erupted between the two groups, the Spaniards occupied the villages of Tondo, and Manila, where a battle was fought.

In the same year, more reinforcements arrived in the Philippines, prompting López de Legazpi to leave Cebu. He recruited 250 Spanish soldiers, and 600 native warriors to explore the regions of Leyte, and Panay. He followed Goiti, and Salcedo to Manila the following year, after hearing the villages had been conquered.

In Manila, López de Legazpi formed a peace pact with the native councils, Rajah Sulaiman III, Rajah Sulaiman II, and Rajah Lakan Dula. Both groups agreed to organize a city council, consisting of two mayors, twelve councilors, and a secretary. López de Legazpi established a settlement there on June 24, 1571, and he also ordered the construction of the walled city of Intramuros. He proclaimed the town as the island's capital, and the seat of the Spanish government in the East Indies.[1]

With the help of Augustinian, and Franciscan friars, he established a government on the islands. He became the first Spanish governor of the Philippines, and worked to convert the natives to the Christian religion. In 1609, Antonio de Morga, Alcalde of Criminal Causes, in the Royal Audiencia of New Spain wrote:

"After the islands had been conquered by the sovereign light of the holy gospel which entered therein, the heathen were baptized, the darkness of their paganism was banished, and they changed their own for Christian names. The islands also, losing their former name, took--with the change of religion and the baptism of their inhabitants--that of Filipinas Islands, in recognition of the great favors received at the hands of his Majesty Filipe the Second, our sovereign, in whose fortunate time and reign they were conquered, protected, and encouraged, as a work and achievement of his royal hands." [2]

Like I said, the term "Hispanic" technically is used to describe people that speak Spanish, that's the literal term. Here in the U.S we use it to describe a race of people, like Latin Americans. (Which is kind of wrong as well but that's another argument)

Spain conquered many lands, from Africa, America and Asia and you can see their influence all over the place. So different dialects of Spanish evolved.

Filipinos do look a lot like Mexicans with more pure Asian blood of course. Mexicans were more mixed with Spanish blood that Filipinos and their counterparts that traveled to the Americas from Asia evolved a little more that the people that stayed in Asia.

You should have seen my nephew when he was a little kid, he looked like a Chinese baby.....

yes, Casamayor is considered hispanic.
Brazilians aren't considered Hispanic but are considered Latino.
That's why I kind of have a problem with the term.. it excludes a lot of people.
Then again, you could be straight up European (white) and have been born in
raised in Latin America and still be considered Hispanic/Latino.
It's more of a cultural thing I would say.
You are right though, Filipinos do have a lot of cultural similarities.

I agree with cuda.. all those influences is what makes pinoys who they are. It would be as if a puerto rican claims he is italian coz he has european characteristics, no matter what he is still puerto rican. the only exception to that is he just got of the boat from italy.

No philippines deserve to be hispanic, coz philippines have have very little in common with indonesia and malaysia and the rest of south east asia in terms of culture and way of life, philippines is much more related to latin america in every aspect. Hispanic is not race anyway in latin america u got indians, mestiso, blacks and they are called hispanics if they live in anypart of latin america, black hispanics, amerindian hispanics, white hispanics. Because Hispanic is a culture not a race, and philippines is part of that culture for over 300+ years now.

hispanic is not a race. people think it is because the u.s. census people screwed up. they classified hispanic as a race for central and south americans plus mexico.

that was a mistake because a few south american countries are not even hispanic. some were never spanish colonies but portuguese colonies.

my grandpa is half spanish, but we dont speak spanish we speak chavacano.

Chavacano (as a proper noun and a derivative of the Spanish adjective "chabacano" and as it is generally accepted in literature, the broadcast media, and Zamboangueños) or Chabacano (from the Spanish adjective) is a creole language or more precisely, the common name for the six dialects of the Philippine Creole Spanish spoken in the Philippines. The word Chavacano is derived from the Spanish language meaning "poor taste," "vulgar," "common," "of low quality," "tacky," or "coarse".

Spanish influence on Filipino culture
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Hispanic influence on Filipino culture)
Jump to: navigation, search

Spanish influence on Filipino culture are custom, and tradition performed in the Philippines. Spanish colonization produced a mixed culture of primitive Malayo-Polynesian and Iberian tradition. The Philippines has also received influence from the United States, and other Cultures of Asia such as Islamic, and Chinese. This makes the Philippines a multi-ethnic society.

Filipinos speak various languages such as Tagalog, Cebuano, English, Spanish, and other Philippine languages. There are thousands of Spanish loan words in Philippine languages, and a Spanish creole language called Chavacano is spoken by about one million Filipinos in the southern Philippines.

The Philippines, having been one of the most distant Spanish colonies, received less migration of people from Spain, compare to the colonies in Latin America. Nonetheless, many of the Spanish elements in the Culture of the Philippines have become part of the native tradition.

[edit] History
Main article: History of the Philippines

Negrito, and Austronesian peoples called Malayo-Polynesian are the primitive tribes of the Philippines.[1] The Negritos, and Malayo-Polynesians migrated to the Philippines during the last ice age some 30,000 years ago, when land bridges connected the Philippine Islands to mainland Asia.[2][1]

The Philippines was governed from Mexico City as a territory of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, from 1565 to 1821, and became a province of Spain from 1821 to 1898.

In the past few years, the Philippines has begun to re-establish closer ties to its former colonial ruler. The King, and Queen of Spain attended the Centennial celebration of Philippine Independence from Spain on June 12, 1998 in recognition of a shared history, and tradition.

[edit] Language
Main article: Spanish in the Philippines

Spanish spoken in the Philippines today has a great affinity to Mexican Spanish. In fact, the number of Mexican Spanish loan-words that appear in various Indigenous Filipino languages are of Nahuatl origin that were first incorporated into Mexican Spanish, and which do not exist in European Spanish. These words include nanay (nantl), tatay (tatle), bayabas [from guayaba(s), guava], abokado (avocado), papaya, zapote, palengke, and other Nahuatl words.

Spanish was introduced in the 16th century, and by the 19th century remained as the official language of Philippines. However, it was never spoken by the majority of the Philippine population as lingua franca. At its peak in the early 20th century, the language was spoken by approximately 60% of the population (with different degrees of fluence), and by 10 to 15% as a first language. After the Spanish-American War of 1898, settlers from the United States introduced English to the islands. Spanish remained as a co-official language, along with Tagalog, and English until 1987, when it lost its status, prompting the Philippine government to declare Tagalog, and English as the official languages of the Philippines. Today, Spanish is spoken by the Philippines' Hispanic communities, that includes other Filipinos, Spaniards, and Mestizo of Hispanic ancestry.

However, various Philippine Indigenous languages have significantly assimilated aspects of the Spanish language, and contain thousands of loan words. Numerous words, and some grammatical concepts of Spanish origin are used in Chavacano, Cebuano, and Tagalog.

[edit] Names of the Philippines

The name of the Philippines comes from the king of Spain, Philip II. It was given by the Spanish explorer Ruy López de Villalobos who named the islands of Samar, and Leyte "Las Islas Filipinas" (The Philippine Islands), during his expedition in 1543. Throughout the colonial period, the name Filipinas (Philippines) was used, and became the official name of the Philippines.

There are many Provinces in the Philippines with Spanish names, such as Nueva Vizcaya, Nueva Ecija, Laguna, Isabela, Quirino, Aurora, La Union, Marinduque, Antique, Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, and Valle de Compostela.

Many cities, and towns are also named in Spanish, such as Medellin, Santander, Nueva Valencia, Naga City (prior to 1919 was known as Nueva Cáceres), Las Piñas, Prosperidad, Isabela, Sierra Bullones, Angeles, La Paz, Esperanza, Buenavista, Pilar, La Trinidad, Garcia Hernandez, Trece Martires, Los Baños, Floridablanca and many more. There are numerous other towns named after saints, such as San Fernando, Santa Rosa, Santa Rita, San Jose, San Pablo, and San Marcelino, as well as after Spanish cities, such as Sevilla, Toledo, Cadiz, Zaragoza, Ávila, Lucena, and Salamanca.

Many other Indigenous names are spelled using Spanish orthography, such as Cagayán de Oro, Parañaque, and Cebú.

[edit] People
Main article: Demographics of the Philippines

Most Filipinos are an Asian ethnic group called Malayo-Polynesian people. A group of the Austronesian-speaking people.

Throughout Philippine history, different races and nationalities, such as the Chinese, Spaniards, and Americans have intermarried with the Philippine population. Their descendants are known as Filipino mestizos. The official population of all types of mixed-blood individuals in the Philippines remained unknown.

[edit] Religion
Main article: Religion in the Philippines

The Philippines is one of two predominantly Roman Catholic nations in Asia, the other being East Timor. About 90% of the Philippine population are Christians. About 5% are Muslim, and about 5% practiced other religion, and those with no religion.

Filipinos at home set up altars in Hispanic Catholic tradition, adorned with Christian icons, flowers, statues, and candles. On festival season, most barrios organized religious church service, and processions in honor of their patron saint, and cooked a variety of Philippine food.

[edit] Fiestas and religious holidays
Main article: Public holidays in the Philippines

All major Roman Catholic holy days are observed as official national holidays of the Philippines. Spanish-Mexican culture, and Christianity has influenced the custom, and tradition of the Philippines.

Every year on the 3rd week of January, the Philippines celebrates the festival of the "Santo Niño" (Holy Child Jesus), the largest being held in Cebu City.

[edit] Holiday

* March or April - Semana Santa (Holy Week or Easter)
* October 31 to November 2 - Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos), Araw ng mga Kaluluwa (All Souls' Day), and Todos Los Santos (All Saints' Day) where families spend much of the 3 days and 3 evenings visiting their ancestral graves, showing respect and honoring the departed relatives by feasting, decorating and offering prayers.
* December 24 - Nochebuena (Good night or Christmas Eve)
* December 25 - Christmas (Navidad or Pasko)
* January 1 - New Years Day (Año Nuevo or Bagong Taon)
* November 29 - Show Love For Phia Day (Phia Francheska Cauguiran's Day)

[edit] Arts, literature and music
Main articles: Arts of the Philippines, Literature of the Philippines, and Music in the Philippines

Hispanic influence is based on Indigenous, and European tradition. Folk dance, music, and literature have remained intact in the 21st century. These were introduced from Spain, and Mexico in the 16th century, and can be regarded as largely Hispanic in constitution, which have remained in the Philippines for centuries.

[edit] Cuisine

* Adobo
* Albondigas

[edit] Business

In the business community, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) plays an integral role in the economic, political and social development of the nation. Historically, the chamber can be traced back as early as the 1890s with the inauguration of the Cámara de Comercio de Filipinas. This organization was composed mainly of Spanish companies such as the Compañía General de Tabaco de Filipinas, Fábrica de Cerveza San Miguel, and Elizalde y Cia, among other Spanish, and Philippine companies.

During the first half of the 20th century commerce, and industrial trades with other Hispanic countries declined due to the United States administration of the Philippines. However the resurgence of trade between Spain, and Latin American nations had risen toward the closing of the century. 1998 marked the centennial celebration of Philippine independence, it also opened a new opportunity for both Spanish, and Filipino businesses to reconnect their historic ties as trade between the Philippines, and Spain continues to rise during the 21st century.

Actually, "hispanic" is a term coined by the Nixon administration. A white man basically decided it would be more usefull to lump brown spanish speaking people of south America and the Carribean. So if you guys like to call yourselves Hispanic or latino then go for it. I actually like to call Mexicans as mexicans or Chicanos and Puerto Ricans as such instead of calling them a term that white man made up.

and LOl at 5% of the people n the Philippines with gringo blood. Thats like me believing every Pinay ***** saying she is half hawaiin, spanish and chinese and ****.

Mexico — Ethnic Groups: Mestizo (Amerindian-Spanish) 60%, Amerindian or predominantly Amerindian 30%, white 9%, other 1%


Philippines — Ethnic Groups: Tagalog 28.1%, Cebuano 13.1%, Ilocano 9%, Bisaya/Binisaya 7.6%, Hiligaynon Ilonggo 7.5%, Bikol 6%, ...

Well Filipino's like most of South East Asia is very diverse and can't really claim
just one culture or ethnic group. Filipino's like mention before are a mix of Arab,Chinese,Austronesian,Indonesian and Malaysian and we have Pacific Islander and Spanish to a certain degree. So it really is up to the individual what they want to call themselves, the present Filipinos now are like Malaysian,Indonesian,Austronesian and Chinese. I have met Malaysians who were friends with my uncle and they have dialects and certain things they do that have similarities to Filipino culture and that can be the same with the Spanish who brought there culture also. But you have to be careful with some Filipinos who regard the Spanish who gave them names with no meaning.
