Beyond Borders: Indipinos of Bainbridge Island

History of Bainbridge Island Indipinos to be Exhibited for the First Time at the Kitsap County Historical Society Museum!

Kitsap History Museum will open a new exhibit on March 13th. Beyond Borders: Indipinos of Bainbridge Island will be the first museum exhibit in the country to focus exclusively on this cultural group.

Beyond Borders is the culmination of nearly a year of collaboration between Kitsap History Museum, the Indipino Community of Bainbridge Island and Vicinity, and the Filipino American Community of Bainbridge Island and Vicinity. The exhibit will examine the circumstances that brought Filipino American farmers and First Nations women together to build a unique community that is now six generations strong. Exhibit photos span nearly a century and illustrate the community's deep connections to culture, family, and tradition. The exhibit will be on view through September 2019.

The mission of the Kitsap County Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and exhibit the diverse culture, heritage, and history of Kitsap County for the education and enjoyment of the public.

The Kitsap History Museum is located at 280 Fourth Street in downtown Bremerton, Washington. Telephone: (360) 479-6226. www.kitsapmuseum.org.
