The Welga Archive, Bulosan Center for Filipino Studies is housed at the University of California, Davis' Department of Asian Amerian Studies seeks to preserve and make accessible archival collections related to the Filipino/a/x American and Diasporic experiences. Initially created to focus on the overlooked Filipino involvement in the Delano Grape Strikes, the farmworker movement, and the United Farm Workers, the Welga (Tagalog word for Strike, similar to 'huelga') expanded to include a variety of Filipino/a/x topics, including Filipina accomplishments, Veterans history, protest movements against the Ferdinand Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines, and regional histories. The Welga Archive is hosted using omeka.net.
