ANG MARAGTAS KANG MADYA-AS The Maragtas legend explained that sometime between 1200-1250's; Ten (10) Malay

Datus together with their families, households and subordinates fled the tyrannical rule of Makatunaw, the Shri-Vijaya Sultan of Bornay (Borneo). Led by Datu Puti, the Sultanate Minister, they landed in the Island of "Aninipay" or Panay. They bartered their gold and jewelries with the local Ati Chieftain Marikudo for the lowlands, plains and valleys of the Island they called "Madya-as" or Paradise. The land where time began; the birth of the Ilonggo Nation and the cradle of ancient Filipino civilization. For about 300 years before the coming of the Spaniards, the Ilonggos lived in comparative prosperity and peace under an organized government, the "Katiringban et Madia-as" or the Confederation of Madya-as and with such laws as the Code of Kalantiaw. Nota Bene: Period of emigration was later confirmed to be during the early part of the 1400's as recorded in the ancient Chinese Ming Dynasty Chronicles. (See article below) ========================================================================= The Maragtas Legend and the Chinese Ming Dynasty: (By: dinggol a.divinagracia- Sept.25,2006) ------------ --------- --------- --------- -The inclusion in the ancient Chronology of the "Chinese Ming Dynasty and Islamic Influences" by Guo Zhongli about the saga of Bornean Datu Putih, Code of Kalantiaw and the Maragtas Code of Sumakwel, are like drops of rain on a hot summer day. ------------ --------- -Likewise, this is a shot in the arm to believers of their glorious past & noble heritage. ------------ --------- According to Ming Chroniclers: "...1372 AD -Sabah Journal reported a Ming envoy, Prince Sahib ul-Kahar Ong Sum-ping to have sailed through the Sulu Archipelago to Kinabatangan in North Borneo and established a permanent Chinese foothold in that vast uninhabited island...." ------------ --------- "...1390 AD - Srivijayan Raja Baguinda, a minor ruler of Minangkabau, arrived in Sulu from Swarna Dwipa and founded the town of Bwansa in Jolo Island;...." ------------ --------- Hypothetical analysis: With the passage of time, inter-marriages and the relationships between neighboring islanders brought about the contemporaries of Sri-Vijayan Ruler Sultan Makatunaw (or whoever his name), Datu Putih and the Bornean datus who later fled Bornay and landed in Panay in the early 1400's. (Not between 1214-1250 as earlier believed) ------------ --------- --------- --------- ---We noted the following in contradiction viz-a-viz our contentions: ------------ --------- --------- --------- ---According to Ming Chroniclers: "...1433 AD - A Seven-Datu-Council codified the Code of Kalantiaw (by Kalantiaw) and the Maragtas Code (by Sumakwel) for the people of Panay Island; Three Adatus from the original ten who came to Panay left for Batangas and Mindoro; Datu Putih was one of them but eventually returned to North Borneo from where no trace of him was found...." -----------Our Contentions:----------- --------- ------ Ming Dynasty Chroniclers: 1) The name: Datu Puti ------------ --------- ---------Datu Putih

2) Landed in Panay: middle 13th Century----- -Early 15th century 2) 3-datus remained 7 left for luzon------- --------7-datus remained 3 left for luzon 4) Reached Batangas & explored luzon------- -Reached Mindoro, Batangas & explored Luzon 5) from Batangas, settled & died in Sulu-------Back to Borneo with no trace thereafter ------------ "Astana Putih" - present seat of the Royal Sulu Sultanate at Umbal Duwa in Indanan, Jolo Island in the Tausog Region of Sulu could have been named after Datu Putih. ------------ --------- --------- ---We are inclined to believe the ancient Chinese Ming Dynasty recorded chronicles because of the confirmed two points early emigration to the Philippine archipelago, also above-cited. ------------ --------- --------- ---Be that as it may, Pedro A. Monteclaro painstakingly created a legacy to all his "Kasimanwa"--- a guide for future generations; notwithstanding attempts of distortions by others to discredit his efforts. ------------ --------- --------- --The "Maragtas Legend" shall forever be in the minds and enshrined in the hearts of Ilonggos, wherever they may be...a nostalgic memory...of a perceived myth that became a legend ...and the legend that turned out to be the history of a proud and noble People...of the once great Ilonggo Nation! =========================================================================== ANG MGA KALIWAT NI DATU PUTI" (ni: dinggol a. divinagracia - Sept. 1, 2006) ------------------------------------------------------Sadto nga mga panahon, sang ang Aninipay ukon Isla sang Panay nabahin na sa mga tribu sa pag pamuno nanday Datu Bangkaya ang Akean (Aklan & Capiz); Datu Paiburong ang Irong-Irong (Iloilo) kag sa kay Datu Sumakwel naman ang Hamtik (Antique); ang tribu iya ni Datu Puti kag sang iban pa, nag pasad puluy-an sa Araut (Dumangas) malapit sa pampang sang suba nga indi man malayo sa dagat nga naga atubang sa Isla sang Himal-os (Guimaras). ------------------------------------------------------Nag ligad ang mga tinuig, ang apo ni Datu Puti ang ngalan Raja-Mun upod ang iya sakop nag balhin sa lugar nga madamo ang tanum nga putat kag ila gin hingadlan Kaputatan (Pototan). Apang ang iya guid suod nga bugto ngalan si Raja-il nag pabilin sa Araut (Dumangas) sang ang mal-am nga Apoy kag anum ka Datu upod iban nga sakop liwan nga nag bugsay sang ila mga Balanghai padulong sa Selorang Lusong (Luzon) kag sila naka abot sa pampang sang daku nga suba didto sa Taal (Batangas). ------------------------------------------------------After partitioning "Aninipay" or the Island of Panay which they called "Madya-as" or Paradise, among the tribes under Datu Bangkaya, Paiburong and Sumakwel--- the exit point of Datu Puti and the remaining tribes after deciding to sail farther north towards Luzon was the Malay settlement at the banks of Araut (Dumangas) River. ------------------------------------------------------While some of his kinsmen accompanied him, others opted to remain in Araut... finding the place rich .. fertile soil and with abundance in marine products. Years later, one of his Malay grandson Raja-Mun, (Datu Ramon-evidently a convert) left Dumangas together with his family and settled in "Kaputatan" what is now the Town of Pototan in Iloilo. While his closest brother Raja-il and others stayed behind. ------------------------------------------------------Historians believe that the present Batanguenos are also descendants of Datu Puti and the other Bornean Datu who later left the Island of Panay and set up the first Malay settlement at the mouth of Taal (Batangas) River. -----------------------------------------------------In the year 1570, Kapitan Juan de Salcedo -- grandson of the "El Adelantado" Don Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, as second in command to Spanish Conquistador Martin de Goiti, together...explored

the coast of Batangas on their way to "Maynilad" and came upon the Malay settlement at the mouth of the Taal River and in 1572, the town of Taal in Batangas was founded. ----------------------------------------------------Undoubtedly, before Datu Puti -- the Shri-Vijaya Sultanate Minister went back to Bornay (Borneo) to face uncertain fate, his seeds were planted along the banks of Araut (Dumangas) River in Iloilo; Taal (Batangas) River in Southern Luzon and the most logical route back to Bornay.... via the Tausog Region where early Malay settlements were established in Mindanao. ----------------------------------------------------Therefore, the Ilonggos, Batanguenos and Tausogs have direct bloodline from Datu Puti. And that was long before the Portuguese Ferdinand Magellan and the Spanish Conquistadores Don Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, his grandson Kapitan Juan de Salcedo and Martin de Goiti came into the picture. -----------------------------------------------------Here's excerpt from article; A Rejoinder: The Ilonggo Nation Movement "League of Filipino Nations" at: -----------------------------------------------------. . . f) THE SOUTHERN TAGALOG NATION; To include both CALABARZON and MIMAROPA? The first "Tagalog Nation" came into being when the group of Datu Puti settled the fertile banks of Batangas river (ilog). He left Panay Island to be ruled by Datu: Paiburong, Bangkaya and Sumakwel. Datu Puti, a Shri- Vijaya Sultanate Minister of Bornay (Borneo) went home to face uncertain fate. -----------------------------------------------------Left behind to explore Luzon and the remaing islands were the six bornean tribes of Datu Dumansil, Dumalugdog, Balkasusa, Paduhinog, Balinsusa, and Lubay. Many great Filipino Patriots and Heroes descended from these equally great ancestors. Among them, Dr. Jose P. Rizal considered "The Pride of the Malayan Race" . . . . ============================================================================ ========= The Case of Malay Datu Puti, et al...The Verdict: A Hoax ...(KUNO!) (By: dinggol a. divinagracia - september 15, 2006) Preface: One hundred sixteen years ago today, September 15, 1890 --the fifth and last chapter of an essay was published in "LA SOLIDARIDAD". The title "THE INDOLENCE OF THE FILIPINOS'. The writer---Dr. Jose P. Rizal, a filipino reformist--- eventually became the Philippines National Hero -------------------------------------------. This article is written as a tribute to The Man of many talents, now considered as the "Pride of the Malayan Race". -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Likewise, this article is written with malice towards none but with due respect to the following to wit: ----------------------1- The Scholars and Historians who had departed: a) William Henry Scott -an American Historian who in 1968 started it all. b) Fr. Horacio de la Costa,S.J.-first Filipino Provincial General of the Jesuits. c) Teodoro Agoncillo -filipino nationalist at par with the likes of Renato Constantino. d) Gregorio Zaide -Notable author of many Filipino History School Books. -----------------------2- My friends and relatives who are in any way connected with the Clergy. -----------------------3- And to all the "CONVERTS" of afore-mentioned foreign historian. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpts from article: The Maragtas Legend by William Henry Scott: ( )

The Legends of Maragtas: The stories known as the Maragtas are legends that may have been based on actual events in the remote past. They are about the ten datus or chiefs who escaped the tyranny of Datu Makatunaw of Borneo and emigrated to the island of Panay..." -----------------------Remarks: Mr. Scott did not discount the possibility as to its veracity. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pedro Monteclaro's Maragtas: Even though these legends have been known for generations, the word maragtas itself was unknown until it was used as the title of a book by Pedro Alcantara Monteclaro in 1907... ---------------------Monteclaro regarded legends as an important part of Visayan heritage so he collected the various stories of the elderly of Panay and published them in his Maragtas..." "...A large part of Maragtas appears to be based on a work written in 1858 by Fr. Toms Santarn, and published in 1902 under the title Historia de los primeros datos. M4 It was a translation of one document of the mid 1800's and another older document..." ---------------------------Remarks: WHAT'S in a NAME?... he could have used the words "Istorya kang Aninipay" or "Sugilanon sang Panay" or whatever.. what's the big deal? -------------------------------Perhaps these ten datus had different names...and not Puti, Bangkaya, Sumakwel, Paiborong, etc.; the bone of contention is that these Malays peaceful emigration preceded the Spanish brutal conquest of Panay. -------------------------------At least Monteclaro has the tenacity to respect and consult "Mga Mal-am kag mga Katigulangan" of his time. -------------------------------Fr. Tomas Santaren, fathered a child in San Joaquin, Iloilo whose son became an illustrious Ilonggo Physician, married to my close elder cousin who knows her family tree like the palm of her hands. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Dr. Henry Otley Beyer: The misconceptions surrounding Maragtas were further reinforced when even the highly respected historian, Dr. Henry Otley Beyer called it a prehispanic document. In Philippine Saga which he wrote with Jaime C. de Veyra in 1947, he mentioned a manuscript from Panay known as Maragtas and "the ancient writing in which it was originally inscribed". M7 Then in his Outline Review of Philippine Archaeology of 1949 he wrote the following: -----------------------------A remarkable ancient document known as the "Maragtas," dating probably from about 1225, was preserved in Panay and transliterated into romanized Visayan in the early Spanish days. M8 ----------------------------Remarks: Surely--- findings and opinions of the more credible and highly respected world renowned historian and archaeologist with the caliber of Dr. Henry Otley Beyer holds more ground. ---------------------------Moreover, Jaime C. de Veyra, a Waray of Leyte whose Ilongga wife Sofia Reyes de Veyra were both notables during their time. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Verdict on Maragtas: Maragtas was finally placed in its proper perspective as a book of legends rather than historical fact in 1968 by William Henry Scott. For his doctoral dissertation at the University of Santo Tomas, Scott made a painstaking investigation into all the sources of information about the Philippines before the coming of the Spaniards. ----------------------------

Rather than merely plagiarizing past historians, Scott examined the original documents and searched archives and museums the world over for supporting documents and artefacts..." --------------------------------Reference: A Historian dies, but his story lives by Joel R. Dizon EDITORIAL [Gold Ore, Oct. ?, 1993] William Henry Scott, renowned historian who authoried 15 books in Philippine history including The Discovery of the Igorots, is dead. He was 72 years old.... In it, Scott capsulized 18 years of work, faithfully following a cold trail of yellowed parchment records in some of the most obscure dustbins of history in the world: the Dominican Province, the Augustinian archives in Villadolid, Spain, the archives of the Indies in Seville and the Archivo Historico Nacional in Madrid..." ------------------------------Remarks: Relying mostly on evidence, documents concocted by self-serving chroniclers, some frayles of dubious origin, who together with the Conquistadores went on world rampage of plunder, rape, massacre and land grabbing using the sword and the cross in the name of GOD! and KING! to me --- is objectionable!. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Panel of Filipino Historians: Scott successfully defended his dissertation before a panel of eminent Filipino historians, some of whom had formerly endorsed and promoted the erroneous facts of Philippine history. The panel included Teodoro Agoncillo, Horacio de la Costa, Marcelino Forondo, Mercedes Grau Santamaria, Nicholas Zafra and Gregorio Zaide. ---------------------------Scott's meticulous research was published in 1968 in his book Prehispanic Source Materials for the Study of Philippine History and since then no historian has contested his conclusions. M12 -----------------------------------------Remarks: Teodoro Agoncillo - We have yet to see copy of his position on this controversy. Horacio de la Costa -member of the Jesuitic heirarchy Gregorio Zaide -continued to include information from Maragtas in his works. --------------------------But who are these three supposedly eminent Filipino historians. Will somebody tell me please! Marcelino Forondo; Mercedes Grau Santamaria; Nicholas Zafra -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Result of Scott's Discoveries: Most continued to reprint their old texts while others wrote new books that still contained the old mistakes. Take for example this quote from Ang Pagsulong ng Pamayanan (1981): -------------------------------Maragtas' Code is the premier example of written law and it has been considered the oldest because it was in effect from 1250. M13... ------------------------------Jose Villa Panganiban used Maragtas to trace the origin of the Tagalog language in the preface of the very popular English-Tagalog Dictionary by Fr. Leo James English in 1965. M14 To this day it remains unrevised in spite of many reprintings. -----------------------------Even one member of Scott's dissertation panel did not appear to be eager to set the record straight. Gregorio Zaide continued to include information from Maragtas in works such as Pageant of Philippine History in 1979, History of the Republic of the Philippines in 1983 and Philippine History 1984... -----------------------------Postscript: To this day ignorance and misunderstanding of the true nature of Maragtas is still prevalent throughout

Philippine society even among its highest institutions and organizations. Evidence of this can be seen in the following list of web sites: -----------------------------------Supreme Court of the Philippines Department of Education, Republic of the Philippines Governor's Office, Province of Antique Mayor's Office, City of Iloilo Madya-as Heritage Foundation Inc. Save Madya-as, Save Panay. Akaenon.Com Confederation of Madyaas. -----------------------------------------------Remarks: Not only the highest Court of the land and the Philippine Educational heirachy ignore this misconcepcion propagated by Henry William Scott; but still many, many more respectable institutions, groups and enlightened citizenry. =========================================================== The Indolence of the Filipinos English translation by Charles Derbyshire. The article by Jos Rizal, originally written in Spanish, was published in La Solidaridad in five installments, from July 15 to September 15, 1890. --------------------------------Part-III "...Wherefore, Gaspar de San Agustin says: "Although anciently there were in this town of Dumangas many people, in the course of time they have very greatly diminished because the natives are the best sailors and most skillful rowers on the whole coast, and so the governors in the port of Iloilo take most of the people from this town for the ships that they send abroad . . . When the Spaniards reached this island (Panay) it is said that there were on it more than fifty thousand families; but these diminished greatly . . . -----------Part-IV "...Speaking of Ipion, in Panay, Padre Gaspar de San Agustin says: "It was in ancient times very rich in gold . . . but provoked by he annoyances they suffered from some governors they have ceased to get it out, preferring to live in poverty than to suffer such hardships." (page 378) -------------------------------For some time the friars have deceived many by making them believe that if these plantations were prospering, it was because they were under their care, and the indolence of the natives was thus emphasized; but they forget that in some provinces where they have not been able for some reason to get possession of the best tracts of land, their plantations, like Bauan and Liang, are inferior to Taal, Balayan, and Lipa, regions cultivated entirely by the natives without any monkish interference whatsoever...." ------------------------------Remarks: Evidently, descendants of these early Malay Datus abounded in "Araut" or Dumangas in Iloilo and "Taal" in Batangas as contained in my article---The Descendants of "Datu Puti" which is in contradiction to Mr. Scott's theory but conforms with Dr. Jose Rizal' essay. ------------------------------------------------------------------Epilogue: I wonder how this retired lay missionary of the Episcopal Church from New Jersey USA, in a short span of only nine (9) years since his 1954 arrival in the Philippines was able to twist the minds thereafter, of some people to forget their glorious past and noble heritage. ---------------------------Reminds me of a court trial scene in a movie of long ago. "Shake hands with the Devil"... the setting was Ireland. Charged for treason, the accused freedom fighter was asked if she has anything to say before the verdict. And she said: "What is an English Judge doing in an Irish Court?"
