Issue 2 seeks to decolonize, deconstruct, and reimagine the Filipinx diaspora by posing a series of questions about what it means to identify as, and to be, a contemporary citizen in an age of movement and dispersion. Rather than speaking to national identity, the editorials present complex, entangled, multi-generational stories of place. More than half of our contributors are from Hawaiʻi, but they are located all over the world.
