The Bookmark, Inc. in cooperation with the Mangyan Heritage Center, Inc., and the FILIPINAS Heritage Library launched Bamboo Whispers, Poetry of the Mangyan last October 24, 2017, Tuesday at the Ayala Museum in Greenbelt, Makati.
BAMBOO WHISPERS, Poetry of the Mangyan features the best 100 Mangyan poetry in two scripts and four languages, with translations by poets in Filipino, English, and Spanish. These are accompanied by archival and recent photographs.
The Hanunuo Mangyans of Mindoro have gifted Filipinos with their ambahan, inscribed on bamboos in their pre-Spanish syllabic script, and chanted over the centuries. Their reflections on life from birth to death resonate with all humanity, even today.
