        Amaya


        Set in the early 16th century prior to the Spanish occupation when the Philippines was still divided into several city-states and minor kingdoms, the series chronicles the life of Amaya, a daughter of a Datu and a slave, prophecized to be the one who would defeat the fierce Rajah Mangubat. Born as a princess, she was demoted to slave status as Rajah Mangubat slayed her father. Guided by her kambal-ahas, she embarks on a journey to avenge her father's death and eventually to defeat the person that has been the root cause of her misery and the downfall of her beloved land. With these, she must climb the social ladder, from being a slave, to being an alabay, to become a tribe leader, then a warrior, and eventually fulfill her destiny to become the most powerful woman of her time.

        Indigenous Peoples of Luzon/The Cordilleras

        Welcome to The Indigenous Peoples of Luzon Page

        This page contains materials on the different indigenous groups in Northern Luzon, especially from the Cordilleras, their cultures and the region itself.  These sources are available at the University of Hawai'i.  Please note, that this guide lists the basic resources and does not contain all of the materials for research.  For additional resources, return to the Philippines LibGuide Homepage for further suggestions.  

        Igorot is the mainstream, collective name of several of the tribes in the Cordilleras (the political name of the area is the Cordilleras Administrative Region or CAR).  The provinces that make up CAR are Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Kalinga, Ifugao, and Mountain Province.  Baguio City is also included as part of CAR.
         
        The various indigenous groups are spreadout through the Cordillera.  The following lists indigenous groups based on their provincial location and on demographic concentration:
         
        Abra Province                                             Apayao Province                                     Benguet Province            
        Tinggian (Itneg, Binongan)                         Isneg (Isnag, Apayao)                                Kankanaey
                                                                                                                                              Iyaplay
                                                                                                                                              Bontoc
                                                                                                                                              Ibaloi (Ibaloy, Nabaloi)
                                                                                                                                                Karao (Karaw)
         
         
        Ifugao Province                                          Kalinga Province                                        Mountain Province
        Ifugao (Ifugaw, Ipugao, Yfugao)                Kalinga (Limos, Limos-Liwan Kalinga)       Kankanaey
        Kalanguya (Ikalahan)                                 Isneg (Isnag, Apayao)                                Iyaplay
                                                                                                                                             Bontoc

         
        Other indigenous groups living in Northern Luzon are:
        • Gaddang (Ga-dang; in Nueva Vizcaya and Isabela provinces)
        • Bago (communities in Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Abra, La Union, Pangasinan, the Cordilleras and the Cagayan Valley)
        • Illongot (Ibilao, Bugkalot; in Nueva Vizcaya and Nueva Ecija provinces)
        • Isinay (Isinai, Inmeas; primarily in Nueva Vizcaya)
        • Aeta (Agta, Ayta; found in Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga,  Bataan, Nueva Ecija and Panay)
        • Ivatan (Batanes Islands)
         
        *Note: although these names are used  in books and other (scholarly) materials, they do not accurately define the indigenous groups in Northern Luzon. There is actually a wide breadth of languages and cultural variations as well as historical continuities among the different groups.  "Mapping North Luzon's Indigenous People" by Pio Verzola, Jr. (October 17, 2007) describes this concern in detail.

        [ASIA PR9550.9.B834 C6 2011]

        A Filipino young woman, born and raised in Switzerland, takes a sensitive peek into the world of living and growing up in a foreign land. She weaves her observations into the story to address questions to which there are no clear-cut answers. Questions of cultural displacement, identity, societal values and norms. Questions of blessing and sacrifice, fidelity, and generational differences in worldview. Transcending all the events in the lives of the characters is the one universal truth: that the color of sky each of us sees is constant and yet changing, no matter where we are.

They believe that Aquino and Roxas are models of good governance and that we should do battle against those who are the exact antitheses-the opposite-of good governance.

        "In Translating Time, Bliss Cua Lim argues that fantastic cinema depicts the coexistence of alternative modes of being alongside and within the modern present, disclosing multiple 'immiscible temporalities' that strain against the modern concept of homogeneous time.  Lim conceptualizes the fantastic as a form of temporal tranlation that renders supernatural agency in secular terms while also exposing an untranslatable remainder, thereby undermining the fantasy of a singular national time and emphasizing shifting temporalities of transnational reception... Translating Time theorizes the fantastic as a mode of resistance to the ascendancy of homogeneous time and a starting point for more ethical temporal imaginings."

        [Asia DS 674.P5 c.3], added copy
        "After conquest of the Philippine archipelago in the late sixteenth century, Spanish colonizers launched a sweeping social program designed to bring about dramatic religious, political, and economic changes. But the limitations of Spanish colonial resources, together with the reactions of Filipinos themselves, combined to shape the outcome of that effort in unique and unexpected ways, argues John Leddy Phelan. With no wealth in the islands to attract conquistadores, conquest was accomplished largely by missionaries scattered among isolated native villages. Native chieftains served as intermediaries, thus enabling the Filipinos to react selectively to Spanish innovations. The result was a form of hispanization in which the resilient and adaptable Filipinos played a creative part."

        [Asia HQ281.S63 2010]
        This book examines all forms of human trafficking globally, revealing the operations of the trafficking business and the nature of the traffickers themselves. Using a historical and comparative perspective, it demonstrates that there is more than one business model of human trafficking and that there are enormous variations in human trafficking in different regions of the world. Drawing on a wide body of academic research - actual prosecuted cases, diverse reports, and field work and interviews conducted by the author over the last sixteen years in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe, and the former socialist countries - Louise Shelley concludes that human trafficking will grow in the twenty-first century as a result of economic and demographic inequalities in the world, the rise of conflicts, and possibly global climate change. Coordinated efforts of government, civil society, the business community, multilateral organizations, and the media are needed to stem its growth.

        By way of a detailed case study based on 10 years of research on the dynamics of forest use, degradation, and loss in northeast Luzon, Philippines, this survey offers a compelling look at the long history of national, regional, and local outsiders gaining access to the natural resources and lands of one of the world's last large forest frontiers. Following an interdisciplinary approach that balances systematic survey data with qualitative, almost anecdotal, reporting of conversations between key actors, the text places the degradation and loss of forest cover in this area between 1950 and 1990 in the sociopolitical context of logging, forest migration, and changes in upland agriculture.
