    An important legend of the Philippines is about the coming of 10 datus from Borneo to the island of Panay. Who were they? Why did and how did they come to Panay? Why did the Ita who lived on the plains migrate to the hills? Who was the leader of the natives who welcomed the datus? What did the datus offer in return for settling on the plains of Panay? This book also uncovers the meaning of “Ati-atihan,” a yearly celebration in Panay.
