This chapter discusses a postcolonial and transnational ethnographic cultural critique of Filipino seafarers. Filipino seamen have successfully navigated complex national and global cultural politics by subsequently developing their own cultural critiques of capitalist globalization. Working-class Filipino seamen and their maritime migrants teach people to sail, live, and think as a decolonized and emerging nation by creating memorable time-spaces that oppose politics and cultural perspectives. The chapter concludes that it is important to highlight and create ethnographic spaces in interpreting Filipino migrations.
