      Did you know?

      Bangkóta is 'coral reef' in old Tagalog, one of the 175 Austronesian languages in the Philippines. It updates knowledge about the country by poetically articulating the Filipino as coral reef—sea-oriented and globally connected—thriving in vibrant communities everywhere in the world. From the ocean-voyaging Austronesians to the Filipinos of today, they were and still are connected by the world's oceans—a 4,000-year journey of cultural sustainability.

      Bangkóta is the story of every Filipino.
