A 1950s French sports documentary of the traditional sword fighting of the Kapampangans in Capas, Tarlac. It features the fight of two elderly Kapampangans aged 50 and 77 years old playing 'Arnis de Mano' known in Kapampangan by various names such as “Talibung at Sundang”, “Tálibúngan”, “Kálisan”, “Pámagkalikáli”, and “Sinauálî”.
It was indicated in the 1663 book Labor evangelica, ministerios apostólicos de los obreros de la Compañia de Iesus, fundacion y progressos de su provincia en las islas Filipinas (Evangelic labor, apostolic ministries of the workers of the Society of Jesus, foundation and progress of the provinces in the Philippines) by Francisco Colin, a Jesuit missionary, that Kapampangans originated from Sumatra.
It was indicated that a Pampango (Kapampangan) found a community whose “people [of Sumatra] spoke excellent Pampango, and wore the old time dress of the Pampangos.”
When he asked their elders, the latter responded: “You [Pampangos] are descendants of the lost people who left here in past times to settle in other lands, and were never heard of again.”
However, the linking of this ancestral Kapampangan community to the present Kapampangans has been discredited by linguists and historians from the Philippines and by those who went to Sumatra and weren’t able to find the aforementioned community.

Hi, have any information on Tarik Sulayman?
If you are pertaining to the ‘capitan moro' as to what the Spanish invaders called upon, he was the first to defend the Kingdom of Luzon but was killed in action in the battle for freedom against the Spanish crown under Martin de Goiti on 24 May 1571, this was the Battle of Bangkusay.
Henson addressed him as Rajah Suleiman III of Manila, other historians claimed that his name was Tarik Suliman/Sulayman. Adding to that, according to the seminar I attended last June 2013 which is in depth of this Kapampangan hero’s identity, he was nicknamed ‘Bambalito’.
Quoting from Henson’s The Province of Pampanga and Its Towns (A.D. 1300-1965) Fourth Revised Edition:
The son of Don Honorio Ventura of Bacolor, Valentin Ventura, was the one who financed the publication of one of Rizal’s books, the ‘El Filibusterismo’; Maximo Viola of San Miguel de Mayumo of Bulacan, funded the publication of ‘Noli Me Tangere’. Rizal lived with these two people who helped the hero in funding his two books that contributed the revolutionary history of the archipelago.
A French writer, J. Mallat, wrote in his book ‘Les Philippines; histoire, géographie, moeurs, agriculture, industrie et commerce des colonies espagnoles dans l’Océanie (1846)’ described the province of Pampanga as the richest and most beautiful in the Philippines, thus, has been dubbed as ‘New Castille’.
Hello, ano po ang "Ang kalakasan ng mga Pilipino ay hindi mapapantayan ng ano mang bagyo." in Kapampangan? Thanks. :)
