Spanish Galleon Trading Ships in the Pacific
Donated to site by Nelda Percival
For 250 years, Spanish trading ships sailed the Pacific Ocean bringing goods from Manila in the Philippines to Acapulco in Spanish America
(which included, during this period, most of the southern United States from California to
Florida). Aboard these ships were Luzon Indians or Manila Men, who were the first Filipinos in America. Along with these seamen in the ship's crew,
there were other Filipino natives who were transported to the western shores of the Americas in this period. These included exiled chieftains (accused of insurrection, sentenced to separation from their followers) and young women servants
accompanying merchants and other paying passengers on the galleons to New Spain and other areas of Spanish America.
