Having been colonized for 425 years a lot of Philippines history before 1521 was not taught or passed by the people. Also Philippines history during the years of colonialism was not very accurate as it was altered to cover up atrocities carried out by the colonial powers, it was also written in a way that made the colonial powers look better back in their own countries and to keep their people supporting what they were doing overseas. So much of the history of the Philippines is based more on propaganda of the colonial powers than it is on facts.
When we look at at the history of the Philippines we dig deep and try to look past the propaganda that was released at the time and has carried on being the main source of Philippines history. By digging deep and investigating things about Philippines history it is possible to find references to the true history. Our most well known article we released after years of research was “The Philippines Genocide.”
