“Honor Thy Mother” revisits the story of 36 Aboriginal/Native women who came to Bainbridge in the 1940s to pick berries, married Filipino immigrants and settled in the island to raise their Indipino children.

FEATURED STORIES

The 31-minute documentary is produced and directed by Bainbridge Island resident Lucy Ostrander of Stourwater Pictures, an award-winning documentary filmmaker who specializes in filming historical and social issues.

The film’s executive producer, Gina Corpuz, is the daughter of an aboriginal woman, Evelyn Williams, who survived being taken at age 5 to St. Paul’s Indian Residential School in North Vancouver.

Some of the women, Williams among them, fell in love and married Filipino immigrants. These intermarriages raised more than 150 children who now identify themselves as “Indipinos” in Bainbridge Island.
