Filipinos One of the many cultures that have immigrated to New Zealand War Time in the Philippines We apologise to anyone who is offended. (we did not intend to offend you ) We apologise to Mrs MacQueen for doing a PowerPoint over a Prezi.
1. What did the Filipino bring to New Zealand? They brought arts, sports, traditional music/songs, traditional dances and many annual festivals.
2. What are the positive and negative consequences to the Filipinos and New Zealand? To the Filipinos ,Language, racism, meeting new people, no winter and their only season is summer! And the to the New Zealand economy, the negative consequences are, the Government has to provide education, healthcare, housing, money, to them already when it has to rebuild Christchurch. And finally in positive consequences to New Zealand, we can interact with another culture in New Zealand and that is added to our multicultural country.
3. What are the features of the Philippines? The Philippines is an archipelago made up of 7,107 islands (volcanic in origin) in the Pacific Ocean. Other bodies of water that surround the archipelago are the South China Sea on the west and north and the Celebes Sea on the south. Most of the larger islands feature mountain ranges. The highest peak is Mt. Apo (9,690 ft/2,954 m), on the island of Mindanao. The rest of the islands include coastal plains, valleys, volcanoes, forests springs (mineral and hot).
4. What other ways did they interact with our society? They interact with us with different kinds of food that we don’t have. Also they have to adapt to our names and phrases for things that we have invented.
5. What barriers did they face? They may have faced criticism and racism. They may not know English. They may have different beliefs and religion and are criticised for them.
6. How have the Fillipinos contributed by developing the New Zealand’s identity? Clubs The first Filipino club was established in Auckland in 1976 with just 20 members. By the 2000s there were also groups in Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch. The name of the Club Barangay Wellington incorporates a Filipino term: barangay (village) is the traditional community group Religion One legacy of over three centuries of Spanish rule is that the Philippines is the only predominantly Christian nation in South-East Asia. In 2001 most migrants were Roman Catholics. Social Interaction Among Filipinos, traditional values of pakikisama (smooth social interaction), amor propio (self-esteem), utang na loob (reciprocity) and the extended family are important. The American influence is also strong – shopping at malls and sports are popular. What rugby is to New Zealanders, basketball is to Filipinos.
7. When did the Filipinos start coming to New Zealand?
They first arrived during 1990s to come to New Zealand
Students began arriving in the 1960s under the Colombo Plan, a Commonwealth scholarship scheme. In 1962 the Philippines became one of the first Asian countries to have New Zealand visa fees waived.
