A Little history: The Filipinos or the Filipino people are the native
inhabitants and citizens of the Republic of the Philippines located in Southeast
Asia. The term Filipino
(feminine: Filipina) may also refer to people of Philippine
Throughout the colonial era, the
term "Filipino" originally referred to Spaniards born in the Philippines, also
known as insulares, criollos or español filipino. This
distinguished them from Spaniards born in Europe who were known as
peninsulares. By the late 19th century, the term Filipino began to
widely refer to the indigenous population of the Philippines. According to
historian Ambeth Ocampo, José Rizal was the first to do this.
Today, Filipino is also used to
signify the nationality and citizenship of one who is from the Philippines. This
means that not only indigenous Filipinos are included but also other foreign
ethnic groups such as the Chinese.
Colloquially, Filipinos may refer to
themselves as Pinoy (feminine: Pinay), which is formed by taking
the last four letters of Pilipino and adding the diminutive suffix
-y. The word was coined by expatriate Filipino Americans during the 1920s
and was later adopted by Filipinos in the Philippines.
