Pilipino sa isip, salita, at gawa.

Filipino in thought, speech, and action. Welcome to the Katipunan RIO website of the Filipino Language and Literature program!

KATIPUNAN is the name given to the Kapatiran ng Mga Estudanteng 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 shared cultural identity.
