KASAYSAYAN…sa Sugboanong Simbahan : Hulagway sa Filipino isip Bisaya (Part II)
With the coming of the Spanish in the Philippines in the early 16th century Filipino nahimamat that they are the Visayan. The latter did not leave a picture of themselves so our inquiries concerning their countenance from the describe the work of foreigners, such as these following.

If Visayan wound in the 16th century and the first makadagit in thy sight are the seals or Against his body.The pagbatuk / pagpatik practiced in the Visayas, men and women, except in the transvestite who remained mapuraw a complexion, that is clearly the skin with no seals. Consequently, while we are called to a Pintados colonista they also considered the indigenous mapuraw.
For men like his tigma Against first experience to join or fight or fornication, or tiklad or first victory in battle or in love. Pagpabatuk cause of the disease to others even langayon work hard fighters until they are closed for fear that they shall make ingnong fearful. Isug pahubagon but the more so the more fearful they uwat to see a vision.
Beginning of the pagbatuk on making a design used in the skin anuos ink from which he read.Tusoktusokon tremble ingog clouds of teeth in sudlay then a thing for the wound dry anuos. Humanon not all in one pass hilantan nevertheless the majority and even some pain and die.
The first seal to be accepted by man shall his legs as much as holding. It also added to his breast and necks as he passed the battle. The most isug will publish in the face from the eyes until suwang. If a seal magpadugang male without passing through the forest until he biaybiayon, if a fighter, he compared motalaw mix, puntik-puntik the body, but hadlokan.
Gipasigarbo men their mark so they prefer that maghukas to demonstrate it. In another sense the Jesuit missionaries in the Visayas, Pedro Chirino (gibantug that after his Relacion de las Islas Filipinas) said that aside from the more solemn occasions make use of gird ply down the entire body (marlotas) the cousin of uloran men are their seals.
And the loincloth, the common strata in men. Four to five meters in length and were about one meter in breadth. The majority of it is put it on the top of the pagpabitay (wayaway) shall not magtupong the presence (ampis) and side (pakawar).

Biste usay there for the big occasion (openness-openness), as sangkad saob-saob that the foot and is like a robe before opening. The request of Magellan it was clothed Humabon his oath as a friend in Spain.
The often that the head gasket is the Pudong (crown). The majority put on put on ginama from abaca, lungs and the natural color, but in the battle that turned a red crown. For his war hero in Pudong is the pinayusan loved tinaon a bonfire of red, decorated and paamagon is like a silk, the height and stature, he oppressed Increase every battle.
