DVD and t-shirt from Pilipino Cultural Night 2012, themed "Wake Up, Stand Tall."
Kayumanggi, the Tagalog word meaning “brown-skinned” is the Filipino arts organization at
Stanford. “Kayu” aims to provide opportunities not only to showcase Filipino-American
culture, but to actively challenge, explore, and evolve it through the mediums of dance,
art, music, and drama – with a focus on ethnic and historical education. It hosts various
arts workshops and performs/presents for various events throughout the year, which
culminates in an annual Spring Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN): a grand show filled with
dance, music, acapella, and spoken word, all framed by a dramatic skit that addresses and
explores aspects of the Filipino-American experience and identity.
