“Rituals and Ancestors:  The Social Organization 
of the Mangyan Patag of Mindoro”

 
01 February 2006, Wednesday, 4:30 p.m.
Conference Room 3 & 4, 2nd  Floor, Social Sciences Building
Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City 
 
 
The Mangyan Patag of the Philippines, society of some 15000 people speaking
the Minangyan language, live in the south-east of Mindoro. The approach
chosen to understand this society, in which descent groups and marriage
alliance are absent, is the analysis of rituals, which articulate and renew
space and relationships, both understood as being socio-cosmic. The work of
the human beings consists in feeding rice to their dead and ancestors who
he authority and give abundance. The relations between the different
beings – humans (living and dead), malevolent spirits and ancestors – are
animated by rituals. I propose to show how rituals express those different
relations, foundations of the social organization.
 

After completing her undergraduate studies in Sociology and Social
Anthropology, Dr. Elisabeth Luquin came to the Philippines in 1985 and
studied Social Anthropology postgraduate and Filipino for foreigners for
two years at the University of the Philippines. Following her M.A. in
Social Anthropology obtained from the University "René Descartes" (Paris V)
in 1989, she did anthropological fieldwork with the Mangyan Patag (Hanunoo
Mangyan) in the south of Mindoro from 1990 to 1994. Subsequently, she
studied Filipino at the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations
Orientales (INALCO, Paris) and completed a B.A.  Last year, she finished
her PhD thesis (Abundance of Ancestors, Abundance of Rice: Socio-Cosmic
Relations of the Mangyan Patag, Mindoro Island, Philippines) at the Ecole
des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS, Paris).  She is currently
teaching Filipino, basic Cebuano and Philippine literature at INALCO.
