Project Iloilo Episodes S01E08: What’s an Ilonggo?

Project Iloilo Episodes: What's An Ilonggo

| November 14th, 2016


Eight (and a half) episodes, and we’re already signing out! But before that, we turn to the one question that has no definite answer, but was one that we still tried to answer in this episode because we can’t help but be stubborn debaters: specifically, just what exactly is an Ilonggo? Is there still such a thing as being “uniquely” Ilonggo?

Rants masquerading as philosophical musings aside—including this particular episode—we hope you’ve enjoyed every single episode we rolled out this year. But if you still haven’t, then you can click here to start streaming or downloading all of ‘em!

See you next year!

  • Nice job sa ini nga episode, great topic! Dugay na ako nga wa’ay ka balik sa Ilo-ilo, so for sure nag la-in na ang cultura. Pro ma agree ako nga kon sa akon lang point of view, ang aton culture mas closer sang sa Spanish gid. Sa experience ko, mas hapos sa akon mag relate sa mnga Latinos kay damo in common sa aton humor kag pang gawi.
