Philippine revolts against Spain 1567-1572

[ 1567 - 1572 ]

During the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines, there were several revolts against of the Spanish colonial government by indigenous Moro, Lumad, Indians, Chinese and Insulares, often with the goal of re-establishing the rights and powers that had traditionally belonged to Lumad Timawa, Maginoo Rajah, Moro Datus, Chinese settler traders and even foreign Criollo Settlers. Most of these revolts failed because the majority of the local population sided up with the Spanish colonial government and fought with the Spanish as foot soldiers to put down the revolts. Its also worthy to mention that in Mindanao and Sulu, a continuous revolt was sustained by the Bangsamoro for whole duration of Spanish rule (300 years).
