Your criticisms regarding the
history on Aklan was quite interesting, I am a writer in one
of the national daily which is the Daily Tribune and I wanted
to inquire about you some relevant informations regarding your
Firstly, Roman de la Cruz one
of the surviving historian here has recently admitted that
most of the textx contained in Aklan's history was
undocumented. The belief might have transfered from generation
to generation, not even the origin of Kalibo ati-atihan
festival has its necessary documents.
Also, I learned from him that
the supposed ten bornean datus according to scholars arrived
in a place called 'Siruwagan'-a place between IloIlo and
Antique. That means, there is a clear confusion with regards
to the history of Aklan province.
As far as I know, the reason
why Aklan was called the oldest province is that in this
province the historians claimed transpired the first union of
state where supposed barter of 'Golden Salakot' between the
bornean datu's and the aeta's lead by Datu Marikudo has
occured. Thus, the union of state was later called as 'Madyaas
I am thinking about the
validity of your claims, with this I would like to requests
from you to further expand your comments and I'll asked
authorities about it. And if you have more comments, kindly
sent me in my e-mail. Alsö, I would also like to seek
permission from you to send me info about your personal
references so that I can qoute you, and give me right to
published some of your observation validated by the
authorities here. Thank you very much.

Hello! You must be a hell of a
historian or a great historical researcher... I am not an
Aklanon but I grew up in Aklan and also read a lot of Aklanon
Historical Profile and quite fascinated about it.. quite
surprised what I read here in your page...well, at least it
will give the reader more to think and ponder what realy lies
with the real Aklan History...

Granted that the
Ati-Atihan was first staged in the '50s, it's difficult to
believe that the question of its authenticity hasn't been
settled authoritatively one way or the other.
There has to be a
final word on this question. Or isn't there?

I am so happy to
note that somebody has initiated in making a web that presents
the history and culture of Aklan. But there are so many things
about Aklan that perhaps should also be given more attention. I
hope that you give space to Aklanon literature so literary
scholars will realy distinguish our literary works not a part of
Hiligaynon literature. You can also feature dintinguished
Aklanons, not only politicians. We have enough of them. The
history of Aklan should include the Katipunan of Aklan. The
tales, the proverbs, the legends of Aklan will surely encourage
other people to visit and study our province if you include
these in your site. The beliefs and practices of Aklanons can
also be given space. Aklan agriculture and fisheries statistics
can also provide very useful information to our people and to
those who want to learn about our province. Perhaps you can also
include Aklanon songs while your site is being used. I can
provide some information on these points
if you need my help. .
Meanwhile, go on
with your good work. I am proud of you!
