My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.
Hermann Hesse (via decimator)
asks:
hello my dear! just wondering do you know how much evidence do we have on how 'filipinos' dressed prespanish colonization?

pinoy-culture:

Oh we have several records from description in personal accounts from the early Spaniards to the early dictionaries. As far as visual evidence, the only source we have is the illustrations from the Boxer Codex that is dated c. 1595,  which describes some of the different ethnic groups in the Philippines from the Tagalogs to the Bisayans to the Sambals at the initial contact, as well as other groups from the Japanese to the Chinese and those from Borneo, Cambodia, Thailand, New Guinea, etc.

The Naturales

I’m not 100% sure what ethnic group they are as the manuscript doesn’t really say anything except “naturales” which stood for natives. They are more than likely however Tagalog commoners as right after these two pages along with a few other illustrations that we do know that are Tagalogs (the ones above which also those illustrations say naturales) is a whole section talking about the Tagalogs.

To be honest out of all the manuscripts and records we have to date, the Boxer Codex is the one that fascinates me the most, not just because of the illustrations, but because of the writings and descriptions of the people in a very unbiased manner.

For example here we find a passage talking about those who were born biologically as a man but were seen by people as a woman and who did marry another man. If it was friar who wrote this, you know they would make it very biased and condemning it, or not go into much detail. However in the Boxer Codex whoever the mysterious author who wrote it they weren’t biased at all.
