Topic: Lapulapu


In the News (Tue 20 Aug 19)

  
  The CEBU WEBSITE by Oliver Nunez Jr.Cities Nearby.Lapulapu
That' s what Lapulapu is. Philippine history says that he was the chieftain of the island of Mactan when the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan came to Cebu in the year 1521 and colonized the place in the name of King Philip II of Spain, Magellan's employer.
Maybe this is the reason why the Republic of the Philippines embossed the face of Lapulapu on the one-centavo coin, the smallest unit of Philippine currency.
The son pointed to the statue of Lapulapu and asked "Papa, is he an Indian?" By "Indian" the boy meant "the enemy of the cowboy" -- you know, the one you see at the movies; Apache, Navajo, Sioux, etc. -- not the Indian who is the enemy of the Pakistani.

The first known Filipino hero, Lapulapu, was believed to be one of the foremost masters of Eskrima, which was known during that time in the native dialect as pangamut.
In fact, Lapulapu had vigorously trained and prepaired his men for "Showdown" fights against his enemies long before his historic battle with Ferdinand Magellan on April 27, 1521, in Mactan Island.
Lapulapu, even before his momentous meeting with Magellan, had been training his men because of his bitter rivalry with Rajah Humabon, whom he accused of having grabbed a portion of his father's land, particularly the sea area between the Mactan Island and Cebu.

A Lapulapu District in the poblacion of Dagami, Leyte, helped firm up my theory that Dagami, who was executed on orders of Legazpi in 1567, was probably the son of Lapulapu and successor of his "urban abode" in Mactan.
Dagami and his mother, perhaps one of Lapulapu’s several wives, may have been natives of Dagami (whatever its former name remains unknown to me), a town that was probably named after a heroic son.

 Doce Pares Eskrima History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The tribes of Lapulapu, whose original name was Cilapulapu and that of Humabon the chieftain of Cebu were part of the Sri Visayas empire in the 14 th century.
It was believed that Lapulapu who was known as the foremost master of “Pangamut” the name by which the Filipino martial arts was then known, had trained his men for a showdown battle with Humabon, his cousin, owing to a long running feud.
Greatly underestimating the strength and the fierceness of Lapulapu, Magellan lost his life in the battle of April 27, 1521, where the more “modern” Spanish armor and weaponry was beaten by the primitive weapons of fire-hardened stakes, arrows, stones and spears.

The Spaniards, burdened with their heavy metal armors, were no match to Lapulapu and his men who, armed only with bamboo spears, bows and arrows, and kampilans (native machetes), nevertheless bravely battled the soldiers.
Lapulapu thus became the first Filipino to rise against western aggression and domination.
This incident was but a pause in the march of history, however, as subsequent Spanish expeditions eventually succeeded in occupying the Philippines and subjugating and Christianizing the Filipino people, aptly symbolized by the sword and the cross.

This also means that those past productions about Lapulapu, including a supposedly city festival on him, were fruits of pure imagination by some self-proclaimed “writers”; and therefore did not tell the real score about the chieftain’s life, love and struggles.

The more immediate concern is for Lapulapu City officials to look beyond the amount of money involved, gargantuan though it may be, and think of what the airport means to the city.

 Much ado about Lapu-Lapu in Rizal Park
No sooner, a furor was created by Ambeth Ocampo of the National Historical Institute who voiced his objections, not because he was demeaning the stature of Lapulapu as a hero was but because the installation violated the charter of the Rizal Park.
Recently, the Lapulapu monument was taken down because Tourism officials were “apprehensive” that the resin-made structure may not be able to stand strong winds and may fall and hurt someone.” Significantly, they added an assurance that the bronze statue of Lapulapu will be installed once the conflict with the National Historical Institute is resolved.
This has made the Cebuanos indignant to the extent of plucking on the perceived often strummed string of prejudice the Tagalogs have shown against the Bisaya in particular, which in reality, is towards the promdis, in general.
