Reading through #forgottenchildrenofmaui by @lanewilcken . Awesome stuff and worth sharing. #aurianacΓ©line loves it too!

When people hear of Maui, they mainly think of the island named after him in the Hawaiian archipelago. In Polynesia, Maui is best known as a superman, a demigod who performed incredible feats of strength like fishing up islands and capturing the sun. His timeless stories are still shared throughout the Pacific Islands as they have been for countless generations. Some islands claim him to be a god, others a semi-divine man, but many count this bold adventurer as an ancestor. For more than two centuries, western scholars have worked to record the tales of this mythic hero from around the Pacific. However, these anthropologists have overlooked and largely ignored the traditions of the Philippine Islands. Yet, hidden within the ancient mythology, extinct tattoos, and dying rituals of the Philippines, lays the powerful impact of a man well known in Polynesia, but nearly forgotten in the Philippines. Lane Wilcken, the author of Filipino Tattoos: Ancient to Modern, deciphers the fragments of the Maui tradition of the Philippines and compares them with what is known in the Pacific Islands to restore a holistic understanding of Maui and the traditions surrounding him. In this groundbreaking work he reveals the actual life history of a world changing progenitor hidden in the metaphors of mythic traditions that still affect us today. ❀❀ #author @lanewilcken #forgottenchildrenofmaui #maui #matau #Makau #aponitolau #fishhook #seaspirit #lovestory #diwata #mauitiki #pacificislander #filipino #polynesian #southpacific

Last night was an experience I will not soon forget. Thank you to @lanewilcken for sharing with me your knowledge of our people. I now feel a deeper connection with my fellow Filipinos as well as our Polynesian brothers and sisters.

Colonialism and war have muddled up our tribal history. So much so that it is almost forgotten. I am grateful that we have people like Lane to remind us of our past and our traditions.

Today and for the rest of my life, I will exercise deep appreciation for my culture and do my best to be an ambassador for it. Not only mine, but for all indigenous peoples. We must not forget our roots and we must not falter in maintaining our identity.

Apo Oki Ligue reveals her "sulu sa gimukod" (light of the soul) tattoos or "pangateb." They represent mountains, stars, pathways, & footsteps. The tattoo practitioner says a little prayer to Manama, the God of the Manobos before tattooing. Although handtapping techniques were used in the past, the skin is now punctured or cut using a blade called, "burong" or "gap'es." It is believed that the black ink of the tattoos will turn white and illuminate after death to guide Apo Oki's journey through the afterlife to meet her ancestors. Apo Oki is 93 years-old and lives in Sitio Katindo, Barangay Malibatuan, in Arakan town Cotabato province.
*Pangateb is also spelled "pang-o-tub." *Photo by Paulo C. Rizal. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

⭐FYI I will be tattooing at the Pacific Ink & Art Expo @hawaiitattooexpo the first weekend of August ( 4th -6th ). Hope to see you there!

Recognizing shadow & darkness allows us to comprehend & search for the light. From that place of recognition, reality expands. Our ancestors understood this. So should we.
Agyamanak unay @faithbrowndefinitively for your trust in me, the batek process, and our ancestors. My thanks also to @velogucela for hosting me and stretching for Faith. Daghang salamat. *photo reposted from @faithbrowndefinitively

People ask if our tattoos can be given to non-Filipinos. As a practitioner its my prerogative to "gift" designs to those I feel both deserve & will honor these sacred marks. Dennis is Chinese, but has been a supporter of Filipino culture and befriended many from our Islands. He asked permission to be able to receive these marks. He brought offerings for me and both his ancestors and my mine. But most of all, he brought a profound respect as shown in his actions and humility. This is very different from people who just appropriate our designs and wear them without permission just because they look interesting or they like the meanings behind them. Agyamanak unay kenka @dennis_de_menace for honoring our traditions. Many thanks also to @ahleevera & @baybayin for stretching for me!

Many of the designs I've been able to tattoo have been extinct, sometimes for centuries. Fortunately the material culture often preserves these ancient designs of the Philippines. I recognize that they are tattoo motifs because the other symbols that are found with them were still tattooed until relatively recently. It is an honor for me to restore them upon the skin of their descendants. It's also interesting how the further you go back in time, the more similar these designs seem to be with other designs found in the Pacific Islands. My thanks to @nicoquerico for the honor of bestowing these designs of your ancestors upon you this weekend.
🌟FYI: I will be tattooing at the Pacific Ink & Art Expo @hawaiitattooexpo the first weekend of August (4th-6th).

Happy Aloha Memorial Monday! Always blessed to be able to pay trouble to our ancestor anito Maui especially on this Memorial Day weekend πŸ™πŸΎπŸŒ…πŸŒ€ On the summit of Haleakala, MAUI! "Maui climbed up Heleakala and waited for the sun to rise from its house, Haleakala. When the sun emerged, Maui seized on of the sun's shining legs and said, 'O sun, I will kill you! You are a mischief maker! You make trouble for Hina by going so fast!' Then Maui broke the sun's shining leg." - The Forgotten Children of Maui by @lanewilcken #TheForgottenChildrenofMaui #ForgottenChildrenofMaui #Maui #Haleakala #Heleakala #Haleakalasummit #HouseoftheSun #TalesofMaui #Mauitamesthesun #Hawaii #Filipinotattoos #Filipinotattoo #LuMAUig #Lumawig #Kula #KulaHawaii #angulo #kanaloa #ancestorsanddescendants #sunset #hawaiisunset #haleakalasunset #KulaMaui

A lovely old nanay of Bontoc in the Philippines. It's easy to see how people could mistake our tattoos for Polynesian. The Z shaped designs representing lightning are also found in Polynesia, such as Samoa where they represent caterpillars. Often it is the size, orientation, placement and meaning of the symbol that determines whether something is from the Philippines, Samoa, Hawai'i, Tahiti, Melanesia, Micronesia, or elsewhere. That "literacy" is known to tattoo practitioners, mambabatok, tufuga, kahuna or otherwise. The similarities of our tattoo motifs, as well as other aspects of our cultures and languages, indicate that there must have been a common origin for the people of all these island groups. Remember, the borders of Polynesia, Micronesia, Melanesia, Indonesia, and Southeast Asia etc are western / European made constructs. Incidentally, the snake vertebrae headpiece she wears called, "DULI" is to protect her from lightning strikes.

More of this strong & gentle woman's batuk is revealed as she begins her sacred role as a death midwife for terminally ill children. As far as I'm concerned, Michelle is an angel. I'm honored to help her prepare for this sacred responsibility. Many thanks to @libertysauce & @inkanor for assisting me by stretching for Michelle. My thanks also to @gapacificar22 & @iamherbalaria for providing a space for this to happen.
