BANKAW REVOLT (1622)
Transcript of BANKAW REVOLT (1622)
Miguel Lopez De Legazpi arrived in the Philippines in the year 1565 in the town of Carigara, which is known as Southern Leyte. As he arrived, he was warmly welcomed by Datu of Carigara,
The Start Of Christianity
Miguel Lopez De Legazpi requested to send fathers Pedro Chirino, Juan Campo, and Cosme De Flores and Gaspar Garay to Leyte. Datu Bankaw was one of the first converts and most of Carigara was also baptized soon after. The priests characterized them as Loyal Christians.
Because of the kindness shown by Datu Bankaw, Phillip II sent him a Royal Gift, the king of Spain at the time.
The Start of Revolt
After 50 years had passed of Datu Bankaw's batism, his thoughts started to change and he started to want to change back his previous religion. With the persuasion of Babaylan Tamblot, he finally made his mind. Together with a babaylan named Pagali and his children, he built a temple for a diwata, and he incited people from six towns to participate in the revolt. It is believed that Pagali used some magic to attract followers, and thought that they could turn the Spaniards into clay by hurling bits of earth at them.
The Bankaw's Revolt
Fr. Melchor de Vera, a Jesuit, went to Cebu and warned the Spanish authorities of the revolt. Alcalde Mayor Alacarazo thought a way to prevent the revolt. The Spaniards offered peace at first, but they rejected the offer. Bankaw and Pagali died in the battle, while his second son was beheaded as a traitor and his daughter was taken as captive. Bankaw's head was placed on a stake as public warning, to generate fear among natives.
