About Us


Timpuyog (“togetherness”) is the organization of students enrolled in various courses offered by the Ilokano Language and Literature Program (ILLP) at UH Mānoa. These courses cover up to 400-level of Ilokano language, on Philippine critical discourses, on popular culture, on Philippine cinema, and on the translation and interpretation studies in Ilokano.

Timpuyog aims to bring together these students in various courses in an effort to equip them with linguistic and cultural competencies, and to make them aware of the importance of the Ilokano language in the State of Hawaiʻi and the history of Philippine diaspora in particular, with Ilokano itself as historically the language of Filipino diaspora in the United States of America.

Timpuyog works in tandem with ILLP, holds fundraisers for the Ilokano B.A. Scholarship and for its members as they train for more responsible roles in the community. The students involved in this organization are trained to assume leadership positions and skills that are vital in their professional and citizenship roles.
