⚔️☀️⚔️ Alam mo ba na ang bawat Rája at Lakan ay isang Dátû? Ngunit hindi lahat ng Dátû ay isang Rája, at hindi rin lahat ng Rája ay maaaring maging Lakan?
👑 Ang aking mga ninunong sina Rája Sulayman ng Maynílâ, Lakandúlâ ng Tondo, at Rája Matandá ng Luzon, ay pawang mga Dátu, silang lahat ay mga makapangyarihang Rája na may taglay na dugong Lakan, subalit iisa lamang sa kanila ang gumagamit ng titulong Lakan. Ano nga ba ang pagkakaiba ng mga ito? 🤔⁉️

About Kirby: Kirby Pábalan-Táyag Aráullo is a renowned Filipino culture bearer and currently the National Coordinator for Culture and Heritage for NAFCON (National Alliance for Filipino Concerns). He is a Dátû and Lakan by blood, a direct descendant of the last Paramount Kings of Luzon (of both Lakandúlâ of Tondo and Rája Matandá of Maynílâ, who are also of the Sultans of Sulu and Brunei, and of the ancient Mahārājas of the Majapahit), and of anti-colonial revolutionary Katipuneros who fought for the liberation of the Philippines from colonialism. Kirby's upbringing exposed him to the contradicting worlds of traditional politics and grassroots activism.
Kirby is the co-founder and former Director of Operations for the Bulosan Center for Filipino Studies at the University of California, Davis, and has been teaching Filipino people’s history and writing in indigenous Philippine scripts (Baybayin & Kulitan) for over a decade. An alumnus of UC Davis, Kirby has also started his graduate studies in the field of history at Harvard University, and on International Human Rights Law at the Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium. He is a visiting professor at various colleges in the Philippines and a research fellow with Sínúpan Singsing, a publicly-funded institute for indigenous advocacy and the study of Kapampángan language, history, and culture.
Dátû Kirby is well-rooted in his culture and passionate about his heritage; he strives to decolonize Philippine history and democratize Ethnic Studies through knowledge and play.
