the real phillipinos

The Aeta people in the Philippines are Australo-Melanesians. Today other groups of Australo-Melanesians are the Aborigines in Australia, Papuans and the Melanesians of the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, New Caledonia etc. The history of the Aeta continues to confound anthropologists and archaeologists. One theory suggests that the Aeta are the descendants of the original inhabitants of the Philippines, who, contrary to their sea-faring Austronesian neighbors, arrived through land bridges that linked the country with the Asian mainland about 30,000 years ago. Unlike many of their Austronesian counterparts, the Aetas have shown resistance to change. The attempts of theSpaniards to settle them in reducciones or reservations all throughout Spanish rule failed. The Aeta are an indigenous people who live in scattered, isolated mountainous parts of the Philippines. Aetas are considered as the earliest inhabitants of the Philippines, preceding the Austronesian migrations. They are nomadic and build only temporary shelters made of sticks driven to the ground and covered with the palm of banana leaves. The well-situated and more modernized Aetas have moved to villages and areas of cleared mountains. They live in houses made of bamboo and cogon grass. Aetas are found in Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga, Angeles, Olongapo, Panay, Bataan and Nueva Ecija. But because of the Mount Pinatubo eruption, some of them moved to resettlement areas in Pampanga and Tarlac. – *sidenote* We are extremely marginalized. Not many people, if anyone, outside of the Philippines know we exist. We are indigenous to the land in a place dominated by Eurocentric supremacy. Do me a favor, pass the knowledge on. People need to be aware. The national media is filled with bleached Eurocentric stars. *******************************************************#decolonize #native #amerikkka #austronesia #melanesia #mexico #mexika #latino #aeta #aztec #n8v #australia #sioux #indigenous #taino #aboriginal #photography #naturephotography #maharlika #pinay #pinoy #apache #cherokee #autochthonsstandup #autochthonous #polynesian #nodapl #maori #philippines #aboriginee
