ICYMI : Despite the National Historical Commission of the Philippines having clarified issues on the lineage of the warrior Lapulapu, President Rodrigo Duterte asserted that the Mactan chieftain was a Tausug from Mindanao.
CEBU CITY, Cebu, Philippines — Despite the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) having clarified issues on the lineage of the warrior Lapulapu, President Rodrigo Duterte on
But a Cebuano historian challenged the President to prove his claim.“The burden of proof is on the President. Why not present a proof that Lapulapu was Tausug? If we agree on talk alone, (that won’t matter),” archaeologist Jose Eleazar Bersales, director of the University of San Carlos Museum, told the Inquirer.
Bersales said the only existing primary source mentioning Lapulapu by name was the account of Antonio Pigafetta, the chronicler of the Spanish expedition led by Magellan 500 years ago.“We, historians, have nothing to prove. Historical records showed that Lapulapu was the chief of Mactan (Island). I think it’s time for him (Mr. Duterte) to prove that the precolonial hero was a Tausug. This is a better opportunity to have a full research about the past,” Bersales said.
He said most of what is known about Lapulapu in recent times had been based on folk myths and legends.The NHCP, through its chair, Rene Escalante, had clarified that the only account mentioning Lapulapu was from Pigafetta, who described him as Mactan’s chieftain. Pigafetta, Escalante said, did not provide any information on his birthplace or other details of his life. headtopics.com
