How to say “excuse me” when passing through deaf people

This is the first of a series of features that deals with Deaf Culture with emphasis on Filipino Deaf. I will call this Deaf Culture 101. 🙂

Let’s say there is a group of deaf people chatting down the hallway or any passage where there is no other access in going to the other side except passing through them. Now what would you do? How will you deal with it without being rude and disrespectful of their rights and feelings? Watch this short amusing yet reality video to find out. 🙂

This video was an excerpt of the “A Deaf to Remember” Special program made by MCCID students way back in 1994. I was the one narrating in Tagalog language while Ms. Tess Buenaventura gave the sign language interpretation. Enjoy! 🙂
