So another epic from Ms Suzi after the success of Amaya.. nice nice, Indio or Enca, kahit anong unahin nila, pero mukhang super excited na ang mga Enkantadiks kaya better not to disappoint them...
okey lang sa akin na unahin muna ang INDIO...
woo hoo another EPICSERYE from GMA... marami na naman tayong matutunan about Philippine history...
sana lang hindi ilagay dito yung mga hindi deserving na actors and actresses... alam nyo na kung sino sila
Since the title is Indio, I would assume that the setting is in the Philippines while under the Spanish regime, kasi Filipinos are called as Indios back then. Bad talaga yang mga espanyol na yan, pagkatapos kamkamin ang bayan natin, tayo pa ang bibigyan ng derogatory tag!
No wonder matindi ding manglait ang mga Pinoy ngayon.
^masama din kaya pakinggan ang east indies o east india tulad ng british east india company? mukhang hindi naman pero ang indio ay kinastila lang ng term na yan.
Nakakaexcite naman ang INDIO! Okay lang na mauna muna ito kaysa sa Enca, nagcracrave kasi ako sa ganitong series at present
I am not really a historian so my knowledge on Philippine history and evolution is limited, however... my theory on why "indio" is considered as a derogatory term will be based on the nature on how it is used viz-a-viz with how it originated. While it may be true that the term was conceived as a collective term for inhabitants in Asia, we also have to remember that the colonists thought of themselves as a superior race to the natives of Asia, thus the term to described them can also be reflective of how they were viewed... " low class ignorants and inferior to the Spaniards in knowledge, physical features and social standing".
This general perception was also what the church took advantage of to control the people (which is partly if not overwhelmingly true up to this day), by using religion to manipulate these "lowlifes" into submitting to their orders and whims. Instead of looking at the natives as their equals, they look at them as an inferior race, and the term that describes them encompasses their social standing and how they were viewed as inhabitants of that land.
I get what you're saying, but I think my problem with reconsidering the word in a lighter context was that in reality, that word was really intended to be used as a derogatory term to start with, so I cannot reconcile it and interpret it differently.
Parang ganito kasi ito. For example, even up to this times... people who are called "probinsyano" or "promdi" are the target of jokes eventhough ang literal na ibig sabihin lang naman nito ay taga-probinsya sila. Pero we know that there's more to that when someone is refered to that mockingly because of the "context" of how it was used.
Sa case ng Filipinos, some foreigners equate being a Filipino as a Domestic Helper or a Prostitute. We can't help that eventhough it was not entirely true but that's the context of how they refer to our nationality. Pero, ang interpretation natin sa word na ito ay positive, and that's how we choose to view it. Think of it in reverse sa Indio. Ganito ang interpretasyon natin dito dahil ganoon ang context na pinaggamitan sa atin nito.
Sa case ng Indio, hindi lang literal na taga-doon or because we are in that area kaya tayo sinasabihan ng ganyan, ang whole context ng term na yan base sa paggamit nila ay "mga ignorante tayo at mababang klase ng tao tayo bilang parte ng isang lugar na "underdeveloped" (or so they believed) prior to their colonization.
Yung paggamit ng word na ito sa atin noong unang panahon, itinatawag sa atin ng may malisya kapag pinamumukha sa atin na mas mababa tayo sa sumakop sa atin, so the whole context of how the word is used specially by the Spaniards are not really used in a positive light.
...sa case naman ni Rizal, I believed he's trying to make a positive spin by using the word "indio" to get back at the Spaniards. Parang ganito: Itong "indio" na ito, ito ang nagagawa. Kaya nyo yun?
excited na ako dito... Miss Suzi, kailan po ba ito ipapalabas?
Sana po 2 or 3 directors ang kunin niyo just like laloka mentioned...
meron director for drama, special effects, at fighting...
sana matinotinong fighting choregrapher po ang kunin niyo...
Also sana po huwag na po isama dito yung mga tuod/puno/bano umacting; dapat ilagay nyo po dito yung marunong talagang umacting... I'm sure bawas pressure na rin po sa inyo ang casting since nagretire na yung mga nagsisimula ng sulatan roles... lol
More mixed of aerial and long shots and less of close up para makita
talaga yung background/setting ng INDIO...
I'm excited na po dito at I'm sure marami na naman kami matutunan at expect mo na active ang sinulid kapag magumpisa na ang INDIO...
I'm excited na po... woo hoo for more EPICSERYE gawang Miss SUZI
nauuso na yata ang RACIST and derogatory terms...
okey lang naman sa akin yung title na INDIO or NATURALES...
doesn't matter to me kung ano ang title ng bagong serye ni Miss Suzi... I'm more interested in the content of the series... I'm excited na meron na naman SERYE that will teach us about Philippine History.
He likes it! :P
Sino kayang actor ito na maswerteng bibida sa Indio
Mygash Ms. Suzi sana mapadaan ka dito.
Curious din ako kung sino yung actor..
as long as it's not RG.. OK ako...
like may say naman ako kung sino, hahaha...
si Dencio nga ang naiisip ko eh.
pero wala akong makitang post sa LTM Fanpage na nakipag meeting siya this day.
