Identity Crisis

Scripts as Identity

Baybayin in America

3.4 million Filipinos are the 2nd largest Asian group in the US

400,000 Nearly half a million are in the San Francisco, California area

"Ground zero of the Baybayin renaissance began in the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 1990s" - Ray Haguisan

The 90s Fil-Am Baybayin movement aligned with technology advancements that allowed their voices to be heard outside the educational systems. There were Filams in the national spotlight that increased their pride. It was perfect timing.

No Standards Because there are no standards, it can be confusing when trying to write, read or learn it. ! ! How do we support the spelling of foreign words?! ! Who’s qualified to propose these standards? Is it the actual practitioners? Academia? Do we even entertain non-Filipinos?! ! Do we have 2 versions of our writing system?!

Teachers Who will teach it to the students? ! Who will teach the teachers? ! Who will create the material?

Philippine Born vs Diaspora There are some Filipinos living in the Philippines that simply don’t like FilAms, Fil-Cans, non-Filipino, etc. The feeling is that they are not “true” Filipinos” because of language, culture and geographical location.

Economic Cost How much will it cost to change signs, systems, create books, train…

Lack of quantifiable data “You can’t manage what you can’t measure” - Peter Drucker, Management Consultant.
