About Kathang Indio


Katha is a sanskrit which means “speech, narration, story, fable”.
Indio is Spanish word used in the Spanish Colonial times for the ethnic Malays in the Philippines.

The two words were chosen because most of my creations (katha) were inspired by old myths and legends, thus the use of the old term “indio” was more fitting than using “Kathang Pinoy” or “Kathang Pilipino”.
