Hundreds of Filipinos from the Visayas and Mindanao island groups gathered in Hsinchu on Sunday to celebrate their culture with presentations of live music, dance and food, according to the organizers.

Marie Yang, who hails from the province of Negros Occidental in Visayas, said the main goal of the gathering of some 800 people was to establish and cement friendships among people from the two island groups.

"It's about getting together Filipinos from Visayas and Mindanao in the Philippines, because the Bisaya (Visayan) community here is huge but they usually hold their own events, so today's event really unites the community as a whole," she said.

The Visayans is an umbrella term for ethnolinguistic groups native to Visayas, most parts of Mindanao, and Luzon's southernmost islands.    [FULL  STORY]
