• Webinar to discuss Cebuanos' struggle and survival in major wars

      The freedom we enjoy today would not be possible without the courageous men and women who risked their lives and limbs for our nation. The stories of our heroes and veterans show the brutality of war but also highlight man's strength, perseverance, and resilience.


      To mark the Philippines' 124th Independence Day, Gabii sa Kabilin will hold a webinar on June 24, 3 PM entitled, "Cebuano Amidst Wars," with historian Dr. Jose Eleazar Bersales. It will discuss the major wars in the Philippines: the anti-Spanish and anti-American wars and World War II, and it will focus on the Cebuanos' struggle and survival as they fought for liberation.

      The webinar is free of charge and will be streamed on Gabii sa Kabilin's Facebook page and YouTube channel. Those who wish to participate may register at https://bit.ly/3M44ErO. In addition, an e- certificate will be given to those who will answer the evaluation form after the online event.

      Dr. Jose Eleazar Bersales is a historian, writer, and professor at the University of San Carlos. He serves as the University of San Carlos Museum director and the Cebuano provincial consultant on Museum Affairs. He co-authored the book "The War in Cebu," about the events that happened before and during World War II and its aftermath.

      The webinar is part of GSK's activities this year which centers on the theme, "Padayon: The Persistence of the Cebuano Amidst Crises." The theme highlights why the Cebuano race, spirit, and personality have continued to exist and thrive amidst the many challenges that came
      his way, even before the time of Lapulapu

      The face-to-face Gabii sa Kabilin will also be returning on October 21, 2022, from 6 PM to 12 midnight. More details about the heritage night will be announced in the coming weeks, including the participating museums and heritage sites and how to buy tickets.

      Initiated in 2007 by RAFI, Gabii sa Kabilin aims to help preserve local culture and heritage by encouraging Cebuanos to visit museums. Last year, it launched its online activities at the onset of the pandemic to help make Cebuano culture and heritage more accessible to the public.
