Chikka – Not Your Typical Filipino Newspaper

Founded in 2008, Chikka Magazine was Arizona’s first full-color monthly print magazine dedicated to highlighting local news, events, and information of interest to Arizona Asians. Chikka has continued to grow through its ongoing effort to meet readers where they are by providing issues free of charge in both digital & print formats representing yet another first for Filipinos in Arizona. To keep pace with current trends, Chikka has moved toward sustainability by migrating to a 100% webzine format. In essence, we provide the same high-quality content with much less of an impact on the environment. For nostalgia’s sake, we have provided an archive of past covers. Enjoy
