While the earliest Filipino presence in the US dates back to 1587 in Moro Bay, CA, the first permanent Filipino settlement is actually right outside of New Orleans, Louisiana in 1763. Did you know that? Arguably, they established the first Asian community in North America. Filipinos in Louisiana were the pioneers of the region's shrimp drying industry, the predecessor of the modern shrimping industry.
