Ancient Filipino Indigenous Script Series Class by Dr. Catherine Sy Luib
Ancient Filipino Indigenous Script (Baybayin for Beginners Level)
“Baybayin is a pre-colonial Philippine writing system. Ancient and indigenous, it is an alphasyllabary member of the family of Brahmic scripts and is one of the many suyat scripts in the Philippines. It is recorded as being in use in the 16th century and continued to be used up until the late 19th century, when it became superseded by the latin alphabet during the Spanish colonization. Nowadays, Baybayin has made a comeback through tattoos, art, many fashion items and is being seen more and more in the everyday cultural pride of Filipinos worldwide.”
