General Note
  • General note - Bukaneg--an orator, musician, preacher, and lexicographer--is considered the father of Iloko literature. (1552-1624). He was believed to have been found as a newborn baby wrapped in a basket, floating down the Bantay river. The maiden who found him gave him later to Father Geronimo Cavero who taught him religion. He was a great help in converting many Ilocanos to Christianity. His knowledge of Ilocano, Tinguian, and Tagalog languages made him a valuable helper in spreading Christianity, thus winning for himself the admiration of King Philip of Spain and the Pope of Rome. A blind poet, he preached in the streets. Honored as the "Father of Iloko Literature," Ilocano debates in verse were named after him: Bukanegan. Photo reproduction of a sketch made of the Iloko poet to whom the writing of 16th century epic "Biag ni Lam-ang" has been attributed.
