What is Katipunan?

KATIPUNAN is the name given to the
Kapatiran ng mga Estudyanteng Nag-aaral ng
Pilipino sa Unibersidad ng Hawai’i
(Confraternity of students taking Filipino
courses at the University of Hawai’i System).
The name was inspired by the secret society
founded by Philippine hero Andres Bonifacio
during the Filipino-Spanish War in 1896. This
society specifically used Tagalog (the basis of
the Filipino language) in their communications
and rituals in order to promote their unity and
identity.
