European Impositions and the Myth of Morohood

European Impositions and the Myth of Morohood

(p.69) Chapter 4 European Impositions and the Myth of Morohood
Muslim Rulers and Rebels

Thomas M. McKenna

University of California Press

This chapter examines the modern myth of Morohood in light of historical evidence from Cotabato concerning the nature of armed resistance to Spanish aggression in the Muslim Philippines. It investigates how political and economic relations within and between the indigenous polities of precolonial Cotabato were shaped and transformed by external perturbations in international trade and European conquest. The chapter also evaluates assertions that an oppositional identity as Philippines Muslims is ancient, deep, and broadly shared.

Keywords:   Morohood, Cotabato, armed resistance, Spanish aggression, Muslim Philippines, political relations, economic relations, international trade, European conquest, oppositional identity
