History is rendered exciting by the many stories of battles, rebellions and social movements which range from the violent, bloody ones to the peaceful people power. Precolonial Philippines is often glorified as a harmonious and bountiful period. The advent of colonialism ushered the beginning of a tumultuous history marked by exploitation and oppression which resulted in numerous revolts, social movements and revolutions that have defined the character of the Filipino people.
