The Natural History Museum’s unique collection can deepen our understanding of our natural and cultural worlds—sometimes this can mean extending the connection between past and present. As we celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month, we invite you to join Gallery Interpreter Maya Morales as she takes a look at indigenous Filipino textiles and how they tie together a rich cultural history that connects to the natural landscapes of the Philippines to transform their fashion.
