Manifesting and Asserting a Filipino Point of View
Late colonial (1899-1946) and post-colonial period(1946-present) witnessed the maturity of Philippine society in disowning terminologies such as “discovery of the Philippines” and “pagans” (in reference to our ancestors’ pre-Hispanic faith). This also trickles down to the issues of misrepresentation and inclusivity of various cultural communities which themselves hold vestiges of our ancestors’ wisdom and culture. This session explores the sociological and political developments and impacts of changing and accommodating voices in shaping the Filipino nation.
