“After twenty-five years of hard work—the recording, transcribing, translating, cross-checking and more—the ten epics of Panay have finally been documented for posterity. The University of the Philippines Press and Flipside Publishing present the Sugidanon of Panay: Panay’s ten oral epics preserved for future generations in digital form. Tikum Kadlum (Black Dog), Book I, tells about the hunting spree of Datu Paiburong, the cutting of the prized buriraw nga kawayan (a yellow-colored variety of bamboo), and the heavy payment demanded by the man-eating monster, Makabagting, from Datu Paiburong for the crashing of his prized burugsak (gold bell). From the mountain of Panay Island, to the cities, this book reaches out to its varied readers in three languages: contemporary Kinaray-a, Filipino (Tagalog), and English.”
