Jawi Documentary Series, Vol 1

By Samuel K. Tan, translated by Samier M. Bakuludan
56 pages yr 1996

The Jawi Documentary Series is a compilation of indigenous written material of the Muslim south written in the distinct form of writing locally known as jawi (jawa in Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia). As the only extant written indigenous literature of the Filipino Muslims, the Jawi materials are indispensable to historians seeking to correct the misinterpretation or distortions of Filipino Muslim History. This first volume of the series puts together 22 Maguindanaoan documents copied from originals in the archives.
