From Here to Generations next to Us

Posted by Louie on April 15, 2014 at 1:10 PM

I do research on the native ancestry my family came from.. As you see, we were never identified by the community as Subanen because we never practice any of its activities.. We were never been recognized by this neglected Tribe until a certain Guilingan, who was a tribe leader traced us in 1996. I, myself was not even aware until I was told by my sister when I turned 18. We have a beautiful family history that I thought a "just to while time" every time my father spoke in my childhood years.. We have folktales, legends and epics which were transmitted from generation to generation that i thought another bedtime stories.. It isn't just a bedtime stories because its value is more than the story itself.. However, its original versions were impaired from time to time because we do not know any from the Subanen language as to where it must be well preserved and from what group it belongs since most were having almost equal chronological story map.. Three days ago, I decided to collect more information from the web and to trace the family since we were disintegrated from them for century now.. As to where my foot steps draw its direction is a serendipity of my TRIBE.. My life has been in different controversies and still an enigma to many.. My survival is a legend!! Our family is even a baffling statement to most of you here.. To join you is to FREE a soul which has been buried in the graves of my ancestors..
