    Maupay ang Taga-Bisaya

    Kon namimiling ka hin kapadis
    Maupay an taga-Bisaya
    Magmakuri, magmaupay an kabutangan
    Diri mabalhin an iya paghigugma.
    Maaram magdara ha kaupayan
    Ngan maaram mag-antos hin kawarayan
    Bisan unanhon naghahatag hin kalipay
    Swerte mo kon an napili mo Waray.

  • I liked that video, Hazel. Very upbeat.

    Its very interesting reading about the war dances of the Visayas--and in my side research (for fun ra ba, lol)  the region is rich in war dances. Some examples are the Warai-Warai war dance, the Maranao war dance, the Moro war dance etc. These oral and physical folktales are so intricate in telling a story--particularly in the tales of the realm prior to the advent of Spanish colonization.

    In all of these war dances, none are so violent and ravenous as that of the Warai-Warai war dance. In the reading of 'Hizpanization of the Philippines' by Juan Leddy Phelan, the writer goes into specific detail about the Spanish conquistadores under the command of Sr. Don Legaspi leading a massive campaign into the deep jungles of then- Warai-dominated Leyte and Samar. Phelan describes in the book that when the Spanish conquistadores arrived in Leyte with the aid of their new Boholano and Cebuano allies, were shocked to see a war dance by the local Warai-Warai Raja--who cut his own hands with a bladed Kriss. The Conquistadores and their allies were numbered at no more than several hundred while the Warai forces totalled in the thousands (the Spaniards use this number to describe a massive number; the used the same context when describing their wars with the Aztecs, the Ahuatls and the Incas of Latin America as well). Nonetheless, the shear mass of Warai forces that clashed with the Conquistadores and their Boholano and Cebuano allies routed the enemy. Many conquistadores and their native allies were defeated outright. Forcing them to run for their Galleons. It wasn't until a later y ear when a larger Spanish force--aided with naval bombardment and more native allies---that the Warai Raja in present day central Leyte was defeated. The Raja died in battle--as documented in Phelan's book.

    But even to this day, there are dances that commemorate the Spanish defeat to the Warai and their Raja. A very very violent people, the Warai were. It took years for the Spaniards to completely subdue Leyte and Samar---and even then--there were pockets of rebellions against Spanish sovereignty by Warai peoples. Spanish control in Leyte and Samar was only manifested only because the Spaniards gave the region complete autonomy. Leyte and Samar was governed and ruled by Gobernadorcillos and Principales that were themselves of Warai-Warai blood.

    Interesting isn't it?

    I never really knew how truly valiant and violent my father's people were. The first video captures in essence, the pure Warai-Warai war-like nature.

    It sends chills to my bones just watching them dance like that...

    Pariho jud ang dance form sa other Malay peoples. It looks similar to the dances of the Dayaks in Borneo, and the malays of Java. Afterall, the Bisayans are of the same race as the Malays of present day Indonesia and Malaysia. We, Bisayan people are remnants of the original Malay colonizers of the Malaya Archipelago. Overall, there are almost 400 million Malays in South East Asia. (91 million from the Philippines), (240 million from Indonesia), (20 million from Malaysia), (2 million from Brunei), (5 million in southern Thailand). One thing that we as a race share is the use of the Gong. It is part of our ancient Dong-Shan culture. The Malay Race is an ancient Asiatic race. We have been in this region even before the Chinese settled the Yellow River plain, and before the Vietnamese settled southern Vietnam. The Malay peoples were as ancient and old as the Khmer of Cambodia.

    That is why there is so many Malays. A Royal  Asiatic Race.


    The Ancient-Majestic Malay Race



    The Ifugao people: Malay (Philippines)


    The Bisaya: Malay (Philippines)


    The Moro people: Malay (Philippines)


    The Maranao Moro: Malay (philippines)


    Yogkyakarta people: Malays (Indonesia)


    West Java: Malays (Indonesia)


    The Dayak: Malays (Malaysia)


    The Manangkabau: Malays (Indonesia)
