The Legend of Maragtas claimed that ten Bornean datu or chieftains arrived in the island of Panay to escape their homeland. These datu and their families were said to be the first people who settled in Visayas in the southern region of the Philippines, forming a confederation of barangays called Madya-as under the leadership of Datu Sumakwel. Moreen Austria interprets Kapinangan, Datu Sumakwel’s wife, in the midst of native warriors and free-flying birds, showing her courage, grace and beauty.
