"Luzon Woman, circa between 1870-1914 (A mestizo Chinese Filipina woman from Luzon)."  Filipino mestizo is a term used in the Philippines to describe people of mixed Filipino and any foreign ancestry. The word mestizo is of Spanish origin, and was originally used in the Americas to only describe people of mixed European and Native American ancestry.  Most Filipinos are Malayo-Polynesian, a major group within the Austronesian language family.
