Summary

In the late 19th century, American territorial expansion policies in the Pacific created a foothold into Asia through Philippines. Consequently, territorialization of Philippines stimulated waves of immigration into the U.S. that formed Filipino communities.  This paper examines the intersection of space, politics, and identity through the formation of early 20th century Filipino community sites in Annapolis, Maryland.  Through Archaeology in Annapolis (AiA), a cultural investigation of Filipino heritage in the city incorporates oral narratives and archival documents to examine issues in heritage management.  How are these sites reflective of the interconnections between race, gender, class, and citizenship?  How do local and national power structures influence the creation of these community spaces? How does the legacy of American imperialism impact current Filipino heritage management and how can archaeologists address these issues?
