The stories are master studies on how minute details in history,
archaeology, and language can be used as portals to a distant
time but with values and relations—personal and social—that
are so recognizable and which we hold dear even in the present.
Handled with deep sensitivity to language and careful attention to
family, friendship, art, self, and community, Balangay invites us
to a journey in Masawa, pre-colonial Butuan, with the balangay as
a central and mighty image that speaks of the glory and
sophistication of a people.
