Panel 2:
Manila, the thriving capital of the Philippines,
is the center of government and cultural
heritage, and is the economic heart of the nation.

In 1904, aboard the cable vessel "USS Burnside,"
80 Filipinos assisted the installation of the first telegraph cable linking Juneau and Seattle.

During the 1920s and 1930s, Filipinos worked in
southeast fish canneries where they were
referred to as "Alaskeros" and labored
in the Alaska-Juneau Gold Mine.

The first Filipino community in Juneau was
organized in 1929. It was later incorporated
under territorial law on February 1, 1956.

All members of the Filipino Community
are grateful to the Juneau Assembly for dedicating "Manila Square" in their honor.
