    historian Dr. Zeus Salazar re: Indio

    "Bagong genre ito: mitolohiyang pangkasaysyan, kung saan isinalaysayan ang Kasaysayan natin matapos ang panahong mitiko ni Amaya na nagpakita ng Kapilipinuhan noong sinaunang panahon sa pamamagitan ng pagsalaysay ng mga pangyayari sa isang puon/kaharian at karadyahan. Ipinapakita ang pagkahiwalay ng mga pamayanang Pilipino (katutubo) dulot ng pagpasok ng Kastila sa pamamagitan ng dati nang pagkakaugnay ng Ilaya (rehiyon ng kabundukan kung saan nagmumula ang mga ilog) at Ilawud (kung saan humahantong ang ilog patungong dagat at ibayo nitong karagatan). Mitikal na ipinakikita ang pagkapanatili ng (mga) katutubong kalinangan sa Ilaya at ang mga pagbabago nito sa Ilawud dulot ng pakikipagugnayan natin sa Banyaga. Nagandahan ako sa simbolismo ng katauhan ng magiging Indio na anak ng isang diwata [anito sa ibang dako at sa buong Mundong Austronesyano], ang diwata ng Digma, at isang lalaking simpleng nilalang [nasa tradisyong epiko natin ito at nagpapaliwanag sa pagkabayani ng isang nilalalang]. Sa mitolohikal na pagsasalaysay na ito ay maliwanag na sinisimbolisa na ang bayaning Pinoy [hindi ang heroe ng elit/elitista] ay nagtataglay ng kapangyarihan kapwa ng Langit (cf. ang diwata ng Digma bilang ina na ang pagmamahal sa anak ay purong damdaming Pinoy -- cf. ang ating "pamilya" ay nakatuon sa "anak" -- i.e., isang mag-anak; cf. gayundin ang Agilang diwata) at ng kalinangang bayan (damdaming ina; likas na damdaming mapag-aruga sa bayan ng bayani). Nasabi ko sa ating mga kasama na kung sino tayo (ngayon) ay kung sino tayo noon, sa pamamagitan at dulot ng bayani [na mula sa Bayan (banua) at kapaniwalaan/kalinangan nito na siya niyang tangi at natatanging alaga at preokupasyon] tulad ni/ng (naging) Indio at -- kung tutuusin -- ni Boni."

    Lupang Payapa lyrics

    Performed by: Gian Magdangal
    Lyrics and Music by: Von de Guzman

    I.
    Tuwing sasapit ang umaga
    May nabubuong pag-asa
    Na ang pag-ibig at buhay na malaya
    Na minsan ay nawala
    Ay magbalik na sana.
    Sana.

    II.
    Ihahatid ng hangin ang pasabing
    Paglaya natin darating
    Kalakip ang pag-ibig na dalisay
    Alay sa pusong naghihintay.

    III.
    Pag-ibig na sinubok ng panahon
    Kalayaan na binuwal ng alon
    Ay ‘di na muling mawawala pa
    Sa lupang mahal
    Sa lupang payapa.

    (Ulitin ang II at III)

    IV.
    Kinabukasan ang bayan ay ipaglalaban
    Mula noon hanggang ngayon ipaglalaban.

    (Ulitin ang II)

    V.
    Pag-ibig na sinubok ng panahon
    Kalayaan na binuwal ng alon
    Ay ‘di na muling mawawala
    Sa lupang mahal
    Sa lupang payapa.
    Lupang payapa.


    English translation by Prof. Rolando Borrinaga

    TRANQUIL LAND

    I.
    At the approach of morning
    There is growing hope
    That the love and life of freedom
    That sometimes got waylaid
    Will now return, hopefully.
    Hopefully.

    II.
    The wind will deliver the message
    [That] our freedom is coming forth
    Accompanied by pristine love
    [A] gift for a waiting heart.

    III.
    Love that has been tempered by time
    Freedom that was dashed by the waves
    Shall not get lost again, perchance
    In [this] beloved land
    In [this] tranquil land.

    (Repeat II and III)

    IV.
    In the future we will fight for our homeland
    From before until the present, we fight [for it].

    (Repeat II)

    V.
    Love that has been tempered by time
    Freedom that was dashed by the waves
    Shall never get lost again
    In [this] beloved land
    In [this] tranquil land.
    Tranquil land.

    Diwata – written sometimes Devata, Dewata, Divata or Diuata, it is the name (of Sanskrit origin) given by various races of the South of the Archipelago to their deities: among the ancient Bisayas the diuata had the same sense as the anitos of Tagalos; [I]the Tinitianos or Bataks of Paragua call all the inferior or evil spirits diwata; the Tagbanuas--another indigenous race of the island of Paragua (Palawan)--call the spirits or invisible beings diwatas; the Mandayas call the idols that represent their ancestors diwata or manaug; the Bagobos at least know a diwata but it is supposed that they do not give this name to a single spirit; the Manobos also have spirits called diwata; According to Father Sanchez, the Subanos count (though only in a vague way) an obscure idea of god in the diwata, of which they have so much fear. I suppose that the Subanos know not only one but many diwatas; the Tirurayes call diwata a superstitious fish that has eight heads in the navel or center of the sea. It is supposed that the Tirurayes call diwata not only this monster but also other spirits and fabulous beings; the Maguindanao moros call the gods or idols of their infidel neighbors diwata. It is to be noted that the name diwata was or is not used in the island of Luzon.

    [Note: Diwata is derived from the Sanskrit deva or devata, of the same origin as the Latin Deus. The Javanese have spirits called Dewata or Djuwata. The Dayaks of West Borneo know their supreme god under the name Djewata or Djebata; the Olo-Ngadjus of Borneo call Djata (a contraction of djebata) a category of spirits that are in the lower world or their hell. The Makasarese and Buguis of Celebes call a kind of tutelar angels Rewata or Dewata. The Bolaang-Mongondouers of the same island call their supreme god Ompu-duata (grandfather Dewata). The Bantiks (natives of Minahasa or the Southern peninsula of Celebes) call their angels Mobuduata. The Bataks of Sumatra call Debata idup the idols that represent their silaon or the spirits of their most remote ancestors.]

    Inchik, Moro, Indio, Filipino
    By Ambeth Ocampo
    Philippine Daily Inquirer
    First Posted 20:57:00 04/12/2011

    Filed Under: history, Culture (general)
    AFTER TWO months in Jakarta, I am now settling in Kuala Lumpur, completing the last leg of an eight-month Asian Public Intellectual Fellowship. Funded by the Nippon Foundation, I have been researching on the banknote designs in four neighboring countries: Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. This long trip made me experience the homesickness of OFWs and helped me understand other histories, other cultures. Living in Asia made my college Asian Civilization class relevant. I don't recall anything from high school Asian History.

    In Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia I am mistaken for a local, so people speak to me in their language. Being brown has some advantages. In Indonesia, for example, foreigners (often white people and Japanese) visiting the National Museum pay more for admission than Indonesians. In some Thai temples I visited, farang or white people were charged token admission, while locals like me were not.

    When I am found to be a foreigner in Jakarta, they cannot place my nationality. I am mistaken for Thai or Chinese. In Kuala Lumpur taxi cab drivers can tell I am Filipino from the type of English I speak, which is known in some places as "American."

    Expatriate Filipinos in Jakarta are professionals and you rarely see them in the streets. To see Filipinos in Jakarta, go to a church with English Mass. There you will also find pan de sal, adobo and other goodies after Mass.

    Over the weekend in Kuala Lumpur, I overheard Filipino conversation in every street corner.

    Over a century ago, our widely traveled National Hero was mistaken as a Chinese or a Japanese. In Spain he would get upset when children stared at him or made fun of him, thinking he was Chinese. He was of Chinese ancestry but was sometimes anti-Chinese. Expatriate Filipinos in Madrid and Barcelona occasionally referred to themselves in jest as "Inchic." The term is seen to be derogatory and has been replaced in our day by the politically correct "Tsinoy" or "Chinoy."

    In those days a Filipino was a Spaniard born in the Philippines, an insular, while natives were "Indios." Rizal and friends took the derogatory term, turned it around and wore it as a badge of courage to become the "Indios Bravos" (Brave Indians). The same can be said of another derogatory racial term, "Moro." This was also used as a badge of courage, as in Moro National Liberation Front. When will Chinese-Filipinos do the same with "Inchik?"

    Rizal once complained in his diary that nobody seemed to know where the Philippines was and what its people looked like. He recounted an encounter with a Filipina nanny once but they couldn?t communicate because she only spoke Visayan. Another time he listened to a band perform and was surprised to find out later that they were Filipinos. Then as now Filipino musicians and singers were in demand.

    While Rizal did not relish being wrongly identified as a Chinese, he did not feel the same way about being mislabeled as a Japanese. In 1883 Rizal and other Filipino medical students, Felipe Zamora and Mariano Cunanan, visited a Paris hospital where they were mistaken for Japanese. They cleared up the confusion before they were introduced to a doctor who had lived in Japan.

    While on a visit to the Palace of Industry in Paris, Rizal came across an exhibition of Japanese art, and this time he was not only mistaken for a Japanese, he pretended to be one! He recounted to his family:

    "The Palace of Industry is a very big building constructed in 1855 and designed for diverse exhibitions of arts and trades. Admission usually costs 2 francs or 50 centimes on Sundays and Thursdays. There I saw an exhibition of Japanese painting and many men and women, principally foreign artists, took me for someone from Japan, and approached me and asked me for information about it. I told them all that I knew and as when I could I escaped through the history of Japan and her old modern constitution. I spoke a little about the Japanese artists, whose biographies I knew, like Totsugueu, Senko, Nampo and others. They asked me about their methods and they were enchanted."

    Rizal would have gotten away with this. But then it occurred to one of the young ladies to ask me about the meaning of the characters written below the paintings and I found myself in a tight spot. I was afraid that there might be someone among those various visitors who understood Japanese characters, and they would catch me in the very act of telling a lie. Then I told them that the mikado, having set up Japan in European style, had sent us to Europe since we were very young and we have become Europeanized, which added to the difficulty of Japanese writing, which was not as simple as the European, and explained why we have not studied our native tongue.

    Rizal noted that in France he was mistaken for a Japanese, but in Spain he was mistaken for a Chinese. In his day all white people, especially those with beards, were called Castila. Manuel Luis Quezon was sometimes referred to as "Castila."

    In our day all white people are Americans and often greeted on the street with "Hi, Joe." All South Asians are referred to as "Bombay" regardless of nationality and ethnicity.

    How Filipinos (mis)identify foreigners today is a reflection of our history and racial bias.

    GMA spares no expense for ‘Indio’
    Malaya Business Insight, 10 January 2013 23:30

    GMA Network opens 2013 with the much anticipated drama-fantasy series Indio.

    The grand production features the Philippines’ most respected and bankable stars, topbilled by Bong Revilla, Jr. as Malaya/Simeon/Indio. The award-winning actor marks his first primetime drama project via the network’s most expensive television drama to date.

    As Senator Bong Revilla Jr. shares, “Malaki ang utang na loob ko sa GMA na ako ay binigyan ng ganito kalaking proyekto para i-alay sa ating mga taga-hanga. Pinagpaguran ng lahat ng mga tao sa harap at likod ng camera, para mabigyan kayo ng isang bago at napakagandang pagkakalibangan simula sa January 14. Ang ‘Indio’ ay isang pagbubunyi sa pagiging marangal ng bawat Pilipino, isang pagkilala sa mga magagandang katangian natin bilang isang lahi mula pa noon hanggang ngayon.”

    Though staged in pre-colonial setting, the value of “Indio’s“ beautiful story traverses through generations, as its theme of earning dignity through selfless sacrifice for loved ones resonates strongly even for audiences of today.

    In the series, the battle of goddess Ynaguiguinid against the colonizers continues as she also fights for the life of her son. Before Ynaguiguinid cast her last breath, she finally passed her supernatural powers to her son.

    The Philippines’ brightest stars come together to make this series remarkable: The Sanreals: Jennylyn Mercado as Esperanza Sanreal; Jackie Lou Blanco as Victoria Sanreal; Ramon Cristopher as Don Antonio Sanreal and Michael de Mesa as Juancho Sanreal

    Adding enchantment to the series are the gods and goddesses: Rhian Ramos as Dian Magayon; Sarah Lahbati as YnaGuiguinid; Sam Pinto as Lidagat; Rachelle Anne Go as Libulan, Ehra Madrigal as Lihanghin; Ellen Adarna as Dalikmata; Paolo Paraiso as Adlaw; Will Devaughn as Barangaw; Steven Silva as Ribung Kilat, Kyle Jimenez as Santonillo and Solenn Heussaff as Lalahon.

    Spicing up Indio’s life are: Taga-Ilaya which composes of Jomari Yllana as Tarong; Agot Isidro as Linang; Ronnie Lazaro as Waray Lupig; Sheena Halili as Mayang, Daria Ramirez as old Linang and Dante Rivero as old Tarong with Taga-Ilawod’s Melissa Mendez as Alicia; Vaness del Moral as Elena; Pekto as Pedro; John Feir as Juaning;Marco Alcaraz as Javier, Ping Medina as Diego and Robert Arevalo as Cosme.

    Portraying very special roles in the series are Maxene Magalona as Rosa; Bea Binene as the teen Rosa; Jillian Ward as the young Rosa; Alden Richards as Malaya/Simeon; Luis Alandy as Hangaway (Father of Malaya/Simeon); Bobby Andrews and Chinggoy Alonzo as Hernando; Lucho Ayala as the young Juancho; Carlos Morales as Mariano Sebastian; Princess Snell as the young Victoria; Winwyn Marquez as Maria; Jon Achaval as Frayle Jacobe; and Mark Gil as Miguel Lopez de Legazpi.

    Historians from the University of the Philippines Dr. Vic Villan and Dr. Rolando Borrinaga, production designer Rodel Cruz and musical scorer Von de Guzman helped in making the primetime offering.

    From the creative engineering of Suzette Doctolero, with the supervision of Jake Tordesillas and Jun Lana and under the helm of Dondon Santos.

    “Indio“ premieres Monday on GMA’s primetime block.
