Why “Lakambini Series”?

About Why “Lakambini Series”?
“Lakan” means “chieftain” and so, “Lakambini” means “woman leader”. The meaning was only changed to “muse” during the American period.
This year, we are reviving its true meaning. In commemoration of the 145th birthday of Gregoria de Jesus / Ka Oriang, who chose “Lakambini” as her alias in the Katipunan during the Philippine Revolution, we are launching the “Lakambini Series” which aims to celebrate the different “lakambini” in the field of arts as well as feature works that champion women's perspectives on various aspects of life.
