For this year, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar celebrates National History Month by presenting a special event commemorating significant highlights in the country’s history this August 2019.
In collaboration with Grafik Crowd, Red models and talents, Kinetix Creations and RED Entertainment, Las Casas brings you “Historyland,” a unique staging and reenactment of several key moments in Philippine History.
A BRIEF BACKGROUND ON HISTORY MONTH
In the Philippines, National Language Month (or “Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa” in the local vernacular) is being commemorated annually during August. What most locals are not aware of is that August is also History Month. According to Proclamation No. 339 s 2012, signed by former Philippine President Benigno Aquino III, August is declared as National History Month. This repeals another law which designated Sept 15 to 21 of every year as History Week, effectively moving the celebration to August and extending the celebration of History for a whole month.
As stated by the new law, the observance of History Month is done in August because significant events in the nation’s glorious past occurred during this month.
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar brings fun and excitement to Philippine heritage with this special presentation of events in the country’s rich history. “Historyland” brings to life iconic Filipino characters such as Sisa, the famed Katipuneros, Maria Clara, and so much more!
Go back in 1521 and witness the fight of our Filipino ancestors against the Spanish conquerors, during the Battle of Mactan. See the glorious triumph of Lapu-Lapu and the defeat of Magellan. Be a spectator as El Katipuneros echo patriotic shouts as they tear up their Cedulas Personales (Community Tax Certificates) in resistance of their allegiance against Spain. Get to know the story of Sisa, a caring mother, and a submissive wife to an abusive husband, and her hopeless descent into madness. Her insanity displayed as she wanders thru town, aimlessly looking for her two sons after they had gone missing. Both were being wanted for arrest by the Spanish Guardia Civils.
