Sample text

This is not to say that there is a foundational Filipino identity to be unearthed, but it does highlight the fact that subsequent outside influences encountered a culturally complex society that already had substantial contact with the outside world. The processes of colonialism were, therefore, closer to hybridization than assimilation. The nature of this hybridization under Spanish rule will be discussed in several areas: trade and production; social structure and government, and religion. In the case of trade and production, we see how economic interest groups, such as Spanish merchants and colonists, and British and American trading houses, vied to define the nature of the colony’s articulation with the world economy in order to advance their own interests.

These factors make a comprehensive account of the colonial period impossible here (see Cushner, 1971, or Phelan 1959, for attempts at such an account). Instead, I will highlight several features of the Spanish colonial period: trade and production; social structure and government; and, religious conversion. Each demonstrates the complexity of the relationship between the ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ – the ‘global’ force of colonialism articulating with ‘local’ social processes among subjugated peoples.

Improvements in communications and transport infrastructure made centralized decision-making feasible and local politicians operated in this system through the centuries-old system of patron–client relationships. Teaching modernity Perhaps the most profound impact of American rule in the Philippines was exercised through the educational system. Golay describes the American-staffed public school system as ‘a tool for communicating the idea of change to the grass roots of Philippine society . . instrumental in intensifying the Western identification of Filipinos who had been bypassed by the Spanish cultural impact’ (Golay, 1961: 409).
