English version of Epics “Mga Epiko”
Even before the Spaniards came to the Philippines, the Filipinos already had their own cultural traditions, folklore, mythologies and epics. There were substantial writings by early natives. Stories of epics, done in poetry displayed tremendous vitality, color and imagination. These are tales of love and adventures about native heroes, endowed with powers from the gods to protect the earliest communities of the islands during their time.
