The plot spread throughout Central Luzon and as far as in Cuyo Islands. The Society's plan was to have a Christian Japanese ally to brought the Japanese weapons and soldiers. Agustin de Legazpi would be proclaim King of the Philippines if they won in revolution. The plan seemed good, but it was aborteed due to spies reported to the Spanish authorities immediately. The leaders were arrested and executed.
The Tondo "Conspiracy"
Magalat- he rose in revolt vs. Spanish rule in 1596 in Cagayan.

Although it was quelled, the Filipino rebels continued their opposition to the Spaniards. The governor-general sent a contigent composed of Spaniards and filipino recruits against Magalat but the Ilocanos fought bravely but the Magalat's group won.The Spanish authorities thought of another way to get rid of him by hiring of a Filipino assassin to murder Magalat. The plan succeded and Magalat was killed.

Central Luzon- had the center of discontent in the country
Francisco Maniago- leader of Kapampangans declared war vs. Spaniards.
This revolt sought to destroy the Spanish power and to declare that the people of Central Luzon were free and independent and also caused by the abuses of the Spanish officials who refused to pay for the food they had taken from the Filipinos.
The governor-general, fearing other towns might follow Maniago's example, conferred with the chief of Arayat, Juan Macapagal, who promised to help the Spaniards quell the revolt. The leader of Kapampangans sent an emissary to the governor-general in order to make peace and make the following demands:
For the governor-general to pardon all those who participated in the revolt.
The Kampampangans to receive the sum of PHP200,000 as payment for the rice which the Spaniards seized from their barangays, PHP14,000 was paid as down payment and the remainder of the total amount to be paid installment
For the Kampampangans to continue to cut timber, as required by the law on the forced labor, but they would be given sufficient time to perform duties at home.

The Revolt of Maniago
Andres Malong- a native of Binalatongan(now San Carlos), led the revolt.
The revolt spread to the whole Pangasinan and in the course of the disturbance.

The Revolt of Malong
Bancao- a chieftain of Limasawa
He led a revolt against the Soaniards because of the intolerance of the friars.
Legazpi befriended Bancao who had given him foo and other supplies. He became a Christian and a loyal subject of the Spanish King but he returned to the religion of his forefathers. Because of this, the Spanish friar-curate of his town hated him as he convinced a lot of natives to go back their original faith. The natives stopped going to church, which led the friar-curate to seek help from the governor of Cebu to help restore Spanish influence on the Warays. This led to incite people to rise in arms vs. them. The provincial governor of Cebu sent troops and defeated Bancao, who died in fighting.
The Revolt of Bancao
Agustin Sumuroy- Palapag, Samar leader and revolted against the Spanish government.

Pangangayao- headhunting expeditions for lumads.
Lumads- another term for those who remained non-Christian and non-Muslim after the colonialization.
Resistance in the Interior and Mountainous Parks

Certainly, the longest and bloodies attempt by the Spaniards was the colonialization and Christianization of the Muslim. In other words, the process did not only take the longest, but the most frustrating for them. The Muslims in the country remained unconquered and unconverted until the the end of Spanish rule.

Moro- the term used by the Spanish for the Muslims, who also ruled their contry for more than 400 years.
It was the first encounter vs. Spaaniards
1569-Martin de Goiti and Bornean traders took place in Cebu.
1571 to 1572- Manila could hardly be called a Muslim kingdom.
No sultanate evolved in Luzon or in the Visayas. However, Islam penetrated the South and spread throughout Mindanao. Two Sultanates were eventually set up, one in Sulu and another in the Maguindanao-Cotabato area.
The ties between Brunei and the sultanates would continue despite the Spanish conquest of Manila. In fact, the new government in Maila had to send troops to Borneo three times(1576,1578,1588) to put an end to their trading activities and military expeditions by the Spaniards directed at Sulu and Maguindanao. The Spaniards could only put up forts as defenses for their small territories gains as outposts, one in Jolo and another in Zamboanga.
Sultan Kudarat- capable leader that Maguindanao and Sulu united as confederacy. This event forced the Spaniards to finally withdraw from the place and focus on Luzon.
After Sultan Kudarat's death in 1671, the raiding activities slackened. The two sultanates , again, engaged each other in battles over the issue of trade and supremacy in that area.
1716 to 1747-Spain cmae back in South area. Their victory allowed them to build forts in Iligan and CDO.
1762 to 1764- the Moros forced to give up part of Palawan and the Sabah on a lease basiss during the British Occupation.
1851- the Moro leadership finally entered into a treaty with Governor-General Urbiztondo.
1898-they remained sovereign at the end of Spanish rule.
How were the Muslims able to do this?
The Spanish force lacked the number and military capacityto break through Moro kuta.
Mindanao is far from Manila
the Spaniards were more preoccupied in several fronts with wars by the Portugues, Durch and various provinces in Luzon and Visayas and
Islam Provided the Spaniards and identifiable enemy called "Moros"
The Moro Wars in the South
Reasons for the General Failure of the Revolts
sangleys-meant ''traders who came and went.
The Chinese Presence
The Spaniards possessed superior weapons and were able to employ native volunteers or mercenary soldiers.
The people remained divided and lacked unity, despite a centralized form of government and a geographic identity had been established in the country due to the zeal and clever use by the Spaniards which kept the strong if not intact regionalistic tendencies of the people.
The giving of positions of power and privileges to the chieftains and their families by the Spanish authorities, weakened unity among the people and prevented the birth of leaders that could consolidate the many revolts. disconnected and isolated from each other they may be.
The lack of a concept of a nation.
