to Hawaii, the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (Office of the President of 
the Philippines) will conduct the 2006 Cineforum series on Wednesday,

concerning migration and its cultural and sociological implications to the 
migrants, the families left behind and the Filipino community in

colorful history of the Philippine migration which traces its roots to the 
first wave of Filipino plantation workers who migrated to Hawaii in 1906.

Pinoy na Dayuhan sa Ibang Bayan (2) Batang PX: Kabataan at Pangingibang
