Australian Educational Channel Showcases the Ethnic Groups of the Philippines in YouTube Video

On Monday 26th July, educational channel, Ancestral Brew premiered their greatly anticipated YouTube video on the Philippines, titled “Who are the Filipinos: Ethnic groups of the Philippines.”

The Philippines is often understood only for its colonial Spanish past. However, its pre-history of ancient human activity dates back at least seven-hundred and nine thousand years—a fact that is not widely known by the Filipino people.

This gap in historical knowledge inspired Ancestral Brew to create this video which showcases the many cultures of Filipino peoples such as the Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilocano, and Visayan groups.

Ancestral Brew hopes to provide a better understanding of the pre-colonial Philippines, not only for those interested in anthropology or history but for the Filipino people themselves. The purpose of this video is to unite Filipinos with their pre-colonial cultures, by giving them a sense of pride through accurate, well-researched information.
