Abstract: What is the future of Filipino in Filipino American? What counts as Filipino in Filipino American? Who counts as Filipino in Filipino American? These are the questions I pose in light of demographic shifts over time and the advent of science and technology, including genetic testing. I launch my inquiry by first exploring indigenous perspectives and methods concerning Filipino identities. Secondly, I engage in storytelling methods that help illustrate the main themes that emerged from this inquiry. Thirdly, I explore some of the implications for self-understanding implied by recent developments in DNA testing. And finally, I focus my analysis on the future utility and continued relevance of what it means to be Filipino and Filipino American.
