Marindukanon Century of Cultural and Arts Studies: Initial review of the Local History and Cultural literacy dictionary with Cultural Heritage Tour packages, offline kiosks and mobile apps as centennial projects towards creative economies and culture-based industries

This year, Marinduque is commemorating its autonomy from Batangas, Quezon and Mindoro since 21stof February 1920. For the culture, arts and heritage of Marinduque and its people to flourish, it is imperative to document and promote Marindukanon in the region and the world. It might be beneficial to the provincial and local governments of Marinduque to establish and maintain a registry of cultural properties and arts practices.


In the long run, the output could be a basis for a district or even a division level matrix incorporating local history, cultural mapping and cultural history in the basic education curriculum as part of Department of Education’s effort for localization, indigenization and contextualization. Finally, the tangible results of both projects would serve as basis for cultural economies and creative industry in Marinduque.


In lieu of this,  by 2021 there would be a quincentennial celebration honoring the 500 years since the Battle of Mactan. As early as 2016, there had been subtle preparations for the upcoming occasion. Likewise, by 2022 Boac would be celebrating its quadricentennial foundation.  Therefore, the initial gains with Heritage Tourism would be sustained with arts, crafts and trades with technological innovation and applications.


The Marindukanon Culture and Arts Studies Program is a continuation of the academic tradition of Dr. Rex Asuncion and Dr. Romulo Malvar’s collaboration that has yet to come to full fruition. It is also the logical application of Mr. Chito Mandia’s internationalization protocols and Dr. Randy Nobleza’s efforts of revitalization and reinvigoration. In support of the two centennial projects: anthology of local history and cultural literacy dictionary of Marinduque arts and culture, the Heritage Tourism and Kulturismo kiosks would serve as collaboration with more line agencies and private sectors in the province. Similarly, the specific activities of the program is a series of workshops, mapping, documentation, research, writing and collaboration with Department of Tourism, Department of Trade and Industry along with its Negosyo Centers and in coordination with the provincial chamber of commerce and industry. Since Marinduque State College is offering the Graduate Diploma in Cultural Education in cooperation of the Philippine Cultural Education Program with the support of the National Commission for Culture and Arts, it would be an ideal platform for GDCE teacher-scholars to collaborate and work together with others in the field of tourism, trade and business.

what is the impression of the library?

after almost four weeks of apprenticeship at the CCp library and archives, my impression remains the same. How I wish there is a similar library in Marinduque. Before completing my dissertation at DLSU and after my initial training at NCCA as a cultural mapping facilitator, I would always remember the wealth and breadth of the premier special library in the country, It is a source of inspiration, I will always return and comeback with the pleasure of having been an apprentice at the CCp library and archives. One month is not enough to make most of the what the library and archives has to offer.

what are the specific assignments given?

although my task is not quite laborious and as extensive as my peers and co-apprentices, I would always cherish the work ethic of the facilitators, staff and personnel of the library and archives. I am at home during mornings, during breaks and even during the library hours with visiting researchers and students from different schools, persuasions and interests. 

what is learned?

i have learned much not only the content that I was looking for and what I was able to amass during my stint at the library and archives. I have learned the daily routine of the particular sections of the library: the general reference, Filipiniana, world culture, serials and audio-visual section. Through indexing philippine studies journal and contemporary art philippines, I was able to browse and dwell on the essentials. I was able to appreciate better the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group, Dr. Ramon Santos’ mentor and pioneering ethnomusicologist turned national artist Jose Maceda. I was able to learn more about museums, archives, the seven arts and mindanao culture through reading and interacting with my co-apprentices and facilitators.

impressions of the library and beyond

To be honest, I have been to Yuchengco or Met Museum before. It is not my first time but I still looked forward in seeing permanent collections, rotating exhibits and new galleries. During my undergraduate years, I would always go from one museum or gallery to the next opening, artist talk or walk through. Every time I get a chance, I will go museum-hopping even other places outside Manila or out of the country. 

During the first two weeks of the apprenticeship, I was given a routine in the library and archives. On the third week, I got to make a practical assignment. Mam Mila asked me to index the more recent journals articles from the Philippine Studies: Ethnographic and Historical Viewpoints. This took me to my roots as a philippine studies major, way back in college days and more recently in postgraduate studies. I initially intended in De La Salle to catalogue all the PSEHV. It was indeed auspicious to be given such assignment. Then I was tasked to index the philippine contemporary art magazine. It was not also new to me, but it was a fulfilling experience because I know some of the writers, artists and even the exhibits or events that was featured. 

Attending the Virgin Lab Fest is also not new to me, even prior to my apprenticeship I am an avid viewer of VLF. Likewise, I am no stranger to Noli Mi Tangere Opera. I watched some excerpts of the rehearsals during the Pasinaya open house last February. I even new personally the performer who portray Elias from Jose RIzal’s novel turned to opera. 

I am also familiar with Ligaya Bayani-Amilbangsa and Orville Tiamson. I was fortunate enough to present a paper in Osaka University when I got to see the Alun-Alun Dance Circle performance in Japan. I think it was a couple of years ago when Mam Ligaya also was a keynote speaker during the DLSU Arts Congress. Although I don’t know Orville Tiamson personally, I know here Aunt Mam Gaying Tiamson-Rubin.     


specific assignments, colloquy with gurus and experiencing performances

My task throughout the week is to index Art plus magazine, it was an opportunity to familiarise myself with contemporary art scene. I was pleased to know about the galleries mostly in manila and abroad. I also enjoyed the short feature articles about respective artists and their recent exhibitions. Initially, I was indexing more recent issues of the Ateneo de Manila University academic journal. I was able to see and observe the trends of Filipino related studies, usually written by foreign scholars and related to related themes in history and ethnography in the country. 

We were treated with a free entrance to the technical dress rehearsals of Noli Mi Tangier and Set B of  Virgin Lab Fest 15 last Thursday. The first show was 3pm, we sought permission from our respective work station to leave our posts a bit earlier. We fell in line, and entered the little theater and selected appropriate seats at the bleachers. It was my first time to watch it in the said venue I usually watch VLF at the Huseng Batute blackbox theater. It was a build-up, the first is a bit lacking in terms of characterisation and biased towards the lower class society. The next play is well-written but the execution was a bit dull and dry. The last play was very entertaining and innovative especially with the transition and time lapse.

The opera version of the social realist novel of Jose Rizal was hip and contemporary. However due to its length and technical qualities, it was a bore. I usually have this preconceived notions and assumptions about opera and because of the familiarity with the materials, it prevented me enjoying the full length musical play. Otherwise, it would be highly commendable to the general public especially younger audiences and students.

The very next day is the peak of the apprenticeship program with the cultural immersion. We first visited the performing arts theater of the Resorts Worlds Manila. Although the said venue is closed for repairs and maintenance, we were still given the exclusive access by Mr. Ricky Francisco. He was very gracious enough to tour us with the theater facilities and what it can offer. The next stop is back to the cultural center for a panel discussion on technical theater. We were given anecdoese how the respective resources persons ended up with as a lighting, sound director, costume and set designer. After lunch, we started our long and intermittent supply of ventilation at the coaster  to Marikina. The cause was not lost because we were able to visit Handog Center, shoe museum and Bahay Malaya in Marikina. The experience was reach and commensurate to the efforts of getting to the place. We were very much blessed to partake to the life’s work of Ligaya Amilbangsa, Ellen Crus and Tatang Nanding. We called it a day when we reached Alta Roca resort in Antipolo for dinner and lodging. 

learnings/ insights from the field, stage and the library 

To continue, since were already in the province of Rizal it would be a pity if we won’t be immersed with the exquisite cultural capital of the Philippines. We went straight to pinto gallery and the studio of Orville Tiamson. The travel to National Arts Center from Binangonan was not straightforward. I always wondered about Anggono, my first publication was courtesy of Mam Gaying Tiamson, the artist’s aunt. Nevertheless, it would be a more glorious next time around to visit the Arts Capital of the country. With equal weight in my heart, I always wondered how is it like to stay at the Philippine high school for the arts. It was a wish granted to not only to see but to stay at the National Arts Center. It was indeed a very fulfilling weekend for a cultural immersion. The highlight of the cultural immersion apart from the visit to Rizal Shrine and national shrine in pila, Laguna was the sharing of my co-apprentices. I have learned insights from the composite of the leading regional arts centers in the archipelago. I am very blessed to given such opportunity. I am very excited to share all my learnings when I get home to Marinduque. 

Wk 2 report June 10-15

impressions on library 

Due to erratic schedule last June 5 and June 12 to give way to two important national holidays, we were able to observe and experience alternative activities such as museum hopping and opening of Ternocon. Since the Cultural Center is implementing a four-day working week, Monday is the second Colloquy with Gurus. This time, we went to the University of Philippines to interact with the National Artist for Music, Dr. Ramon Santos. And finally last Wednesday, during the commemoration of the 121st Independence Day, we went to SM Mall of Asia for the opening of Ternocon. One day after the orientation, it was not only a holiday for our Muslim siblings but also a chance to immerse to the museums in Intramuros. I went alone at first to the newly opened “Museo de Intramuros.” I also went to Casa Manila and on my way across to Museum de San Agustin, I saw my co-apprentices. So I tagged along with them to San Agustin Church, Manila Cathedral and finally at Fort Santiago. 

specific assignment 

Last Tuesday, I was able to watch “Tuklas Sining” documentary series at the audio-visual section. Mang Dany assisted me in searching for the Video materials, after locating the VHS tapes he set up the television and video player. I was able to see at least three out seven arts from the series:

Dulaan, Musika and Sayaw. Earlier, I found some materials related to the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group and the launching Jose Maceda’s book “Gongs and Bamboo.” The video materials were a bit raw, unedited and with no credits. T

he ROFG performance was dated December 1996 marking its 25th year of existence. Among the few patrons and distinguished guest was National Artist for Music Lucrecia Kasilag. It was good good supplement to the Colloquy with Gurus when we visited ROFG. I appreciated National Artist for Dance  Ramon Obusan better although I verified that the cultural mapping conducted in Pasay did not include the national artist under personalities or did they dedicated a page or two for ROFG as a cultural institution. 

I was also glad that the venue for the next Colloquy with Gurus was held at Jose Maceda Hall, the Center for Ethnomusicology has just transferred from its original location. I got to see Dr. Ramon Santos who was then the artistic director of the Cultural Director in 1998 during the launch of the national artist for music Dr. Jose Maceda. It was pleasurable to watch the culmination of avant garde composer’s career with performances of gangsa from the North, wind and bamboo instruments by indigenous peoples with kulintang in the South. 

Finally, it was good to note that aside from Sining Kambayoka and religious theater in Marinduque was featured in the documentary series, Dulaan. I also benefited from the complete set of the CCP encyclopedia for the arts, both the first and (1994) second (2017) edition.   I was able to locate the luminaries from dance, music and theater like Ramon Obusan, Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group, Jose Maceda, Ramon Santos and the UP Center for Ethnomusicology. 

learnings/ insights

It was during the centenary of the archipelago’s revolution, Dr. Jose Maceda launched his life’s work “Gongs and Bamboo” at the cultural center which was jointly published by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the University of the Philippines Press. When I went to Sagada as a cultural mapping facilitator, not as a tourist anymore, I was able to get a deeper appreciation of the Cordillera culture from the said book by the National Artist for music. I understood the interconnection between the musical instruments in the country such as gangsa, the kulintang, gandingan and agung. I am delighted that kalutang was also included in the book, however I learned that the Mangyan is also making use of the instrument apart from the townsfolk of Gasan, Marinduque.

Likewise, I also enjoyed the very detailed book “Sinaunang Habi” by Marian Pastor-Roces. I was trying to relate the different weaving traditions in the North and from the South. Weaving is both tangible and intangible, the knowledge about the patterns, technique and craftsmanship is indicative of expressive cultures and also the aesthetic value of the finished product is priceless. I was also trying to locate the tradition of weaving in Marinduque between the long and great traditions of the Cordilleras and Mindanao. Although I was not able to find out at the moments, perhaps the weavers from Marinduque can learn much from the folk practice featured in the book by Pastor-Roces. 

While interacting with Mam Alice, she told us about the challenges and issues between the first edition and the revised edition of the CCP encyclopedia of the Arts. Just like the “Tuklas Sining” monograph series on the seven arts: architecture, theater, music, literature, film, dance, and visual arts, the volume was edited by Dr. Nicanor Tiongson. I could just imagine with the process of updating the entries in the encyclopedia, the main challenge is not the dearth or lack of information but on the contrary, the verification and culling of credible data. My main realisation, while looking for Marinduque entries in the rich library and archives, I did not found much. But on the other hand, I was able to understand more and more the interface of archipelagic configuration like the function of the UP Center for Ethnomusicology. According to Dr. Ramon Santos, it can only be attributed to only one man’s initiative, this can be attested with more than 3,500 hours of sound recordings, thousands of pages of field notes and detailed photographs along with musical notations of at least 87 ethnolinguistic groups in the archipelago. 

KSS library x archives weekly report

what is the impression of the library?

Since June 4, during the orientation we’ve already met with Mam Milagros Pasion. I also met with my co-apprentices from Mindanao State University (MSU) Marawi: Sir Pepito and Muamar. I am always fascinated with the library and more so with the archives. When I was studying at De La Salle University (DLSU) Manila, I’ve already touched based with the attached cultural offices to the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA) such as National Library of the Philippines (NLP), National Archives of the Philippines (NAP), National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), National Museum (NM), Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (KWF) and of course the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP). After I applied and got accepted as a NCCA cultural mapping facilitator, my interest was renewed when we took up social institutions and movable heritage. Yesterday, June 6 we were introduced to Mam Alice Esteves, the chief of the library and archives. She provided us a run through of the CCP library and archives: the archives section, technical room and audio-visual section. 

what are the specific assignments given?

Last Tuesday, Mam Pasion told us apprentices that we would be coming with either an annotation bibliography or proposal for conservation and preservation of the library and archival holdings. Since the first week is not full, with the holiday and general orientation, we hope during the next three weeks there would be rotation so we would be acquainted with other areas and functions of the library and archives. I think I am assigned to library/archives collection management. While Muamar is going to deal with the organisation/ preservation/ digitisation of audio-visual materials. And Sir Pepito is given the task of collection/ staff development, automation database management and research methods with procedures. 

what is learned?

I appreciate it much that we were given enough room to explore and discover on our own. I was able to see the drastic development from the inception of the center since late 60s to the present. I was able to see the CCP library and and archives division Manual of Operations. Likewise, I get to read the annual reports available online from 2009 to 2017. Over lunch, my co-apprentices informally propose to come up with a publication proposal on Sining Kambayoka if not an updated Mindanao Studies Annotated Bibliography. Meanwhile, I would like to focus on collections management, more specifically on collection development, conservation and preservation. When we get home, I think we can make something productive out of our month-long apprenticeship especially to our respective work and hopefully to the community. It is my life-long dream to establish a studies center with a library, publication and museum like that of the Center for Kapampangan Studies (CKS), Center for Cebuano Studies (CSC) and Mindanawon Initiatives for Cultural Dialogue (MICD).

It is important for in the activity, you can show what are the knowledge you learned and skills that was improved and earned. It requires students to participate in all aspects of event operations and analyze the success of the event.

The program with the theme “Knowing Your CULTURE: Marindukanon Chizu to Nihongo Jisho” was started at exactly 9:40 a.m. with an opening prayer followed immediately by the National Anthem. To formally start the program, a welcome message was given to us by our dear Professor, Randy T. Nobleza, Ph., D. He emphasized the part of the cultural mapping form that we are going to present.

An intermission number was rendered to us by selected MAED students.  And the presentation begins with the First Plenary Session 1 entitled Natural Heritage compose of different subtopics namely Land Formation presented by Mrs. Darlenne Marie Peregrin-Recto and Ms. Jezebel R.

The video tackles one of the tradition in our province, the Moriones Festival.  The video also showed the Marindukanons panataduring Holy Week wearing their Moriones mask. As the video showed the interview with one of the known maskaramaker, he said that making masks for him was a panata, but that was before.
