The Filipino is basically of
Malay stock with a sprinkling of
Chinese, American, Spanish and Arab
blood. The Philippines has a
population of 70 million, and it is
hard to distinguish accurately the
lines between stocks. From a long
history of Western colonial rule,
interspersed with the visits of
merchants and traders evolved a
people of a unique blend of east and
west, both in appearance and
culture.
The Filipino character is actually a little bit
of all the cultures put together. The bayanihan or
the spirit of kinship and camaraderie that Filipinos
are famous for is said to be taken from Malay
forefathers. The close family relations are said to
have been inherited from Chinese.
The piousness comes from the Spaniards who
introduced Christianity in the 16th century. Hospitality
is the common denominator in the Filipino character
and this is what distinguishes the Filipinos. Filipinos
are probably one of the few. If not the only, Englishproficient Oriental people today. Pilipino is the official
national language, with English considered as the
country’s unofficial one.

According to Maranaw folklore, this
world was created by a great Being. It is
not known, however, who exactly is this
great Being. Or how many days it took him
to create this world.
This world is divided into seven layers. The earth
has also seven layers. Each layer is inhabited by a
different kind of being. The uppermost layer, for
example, is the place we are inhabiting. The
second layer is being inhabited by dwarfs. These
dwarfs are short, plump, and long-haired. They
are locally known as Karibanga.
The Karibanga are said to possess magical
powers. They are usually invisible to the human
eye. The third layer of the earth which is found
under the sea or lake is inhabited by nymphs.
These nymphs also possess certain magical
powers. It is stated in the story of Rajah
Indarapatra that he met and fell in love with the
rincessnymph with whom he had a child.
The sky also consists of seven layers. Each layer has a
door which is guarded day and night by huge
mythical birds called garoda. The seventh layer of
the sky is the seat of heaven which is also divided
into seven layers. Every layer in the sky is inhabited
by angels. Maranaws believe that angels do not need
food. They all possess wings with which they fly.
Heaven which is found on the seventh layer of
the sky is where good people‘s spirits go after
death. Saints are assigned to the seventh layer
while persons who―”barely made it” are
confined to the lower most layer which is found
at the bottom of heaven.
It is in heaven where we find the tree-of-life. On
each leaf of the tree-of-life is written the name
of every person living on earth. As soon as a leaf
ripens or dries and falls, the person whose name
it carries also dies.
The soul of every person is found in tightly covered
jars kept in one section of heaven. This particular
section of heaven is closely guarded by a monster
with a thousand eyes, named Walo. Walo, in addition
to his thousand eyes, has also eight hairy heads. The
epic Darangan speaks of Madale, Bantugan‘s brother
and, Mabaning, Husband of Lawanen, entering this
section and retrieving the soul of Bantugan.
