By Marites A. Khanser and Lilian C. de la Peña

This is a novel about the nikkeijin, descendants of Japanese migrants to pre-Pacific War Philippines. The protagonist, a 20-year old Ondilin, struggles to deal with her shifting national identity as a Filipino belonging to the Bagobo Tagabawa indigenous community, and as a Japanese-Filipino descendant. A series of events in relation to her grandfather Impit’s nikkeijin claim as nisei – first generation descendant – propel her on a quest to uncover her family’s Japanese ancestry. Four generations of Tagabawa nikkeijin in this novel depict the plight of Philippine nikkeijin today in their claim to be recognized as Filipino-Japanese descendants.

This book about “trapo politics” and our people’s apathy and disconnect from nationahood is a must read for those in power, those who wish to be in political power, and even those who wish to initiate a sea of change for a better society and country. The wide range of research, experience and attention conducted by Manny Valdehuesa on what ails our society and people and how we can still recover from our sorry state focus on the fundamental unit of our society and government: the Barangay.

[Ramon B. Magsaysay, Jr.]
