Kababayang Pilipino of British Columbia is a cultural performing arts group dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the Filipino folk heritage through the presentation of authentic Filipino dance, music, song and drama.
Kababayang Pilipino provides the opportunity for its members to educate themselves and inturn, educate the community at large about the rich history and culture of the Filipino.
What began as a determined effort by a dedicated few has become an important vessel of Filipino culture in British Columbia’s vibrant ethnic community. Moveover, Kababayang Pilipno’s targe membership—young people who seek a greater understand of the Philippines and her people—continues to be enriched by the unique social, cultural, and artistic dynamic offered by this organization.
Conceived for youth, by youth, Kababayang Pilipino is ever inspired by each new generation of young people who are eager to discover something of themselves by learning something of the Filipino people to which they are tied in culture, bound in hearth and indelibly marked in spirit.
