A photo of a woman and her son walking along the streets of Pampanga City, Philippines, is part of a series of images documenting the history of the Filipino community there.
This image was captured by a local photographer in 2016.
The woman is wearing a white, headscarf and holds a piece of paper that says “Mother in persis” above her head.
It is a sign of the way Filipinos came to this part of the world and how they spoke their native language.
The sign reads, “To all the mothers of our mother tongue.
It means, ‘May the mother tongue of the mother of all languages.'”
The photo was taken in 2016, when the Filipinos first settled in the Philippines.
It has since been used by Filipino-Americans as an example of their mother tongue being spoken by Filipinos in the country.
