‘Bayawak’s Trail’ by Justine Camacho-Tajonera
Marian Malabanan is an anthropology graduate student who just wants to study Manobo folklore when she becomes embroiled in a murder (or what she considers an assassination) and the Manobos’ struggle with a paramilitary group in the hinterlands of Surigao del Sur.
Far away from friends and family, she can only rely on a few people: her host, a local congresswoman, Nanette Mamaril, and the mysterious Gregoire Durant, photographer and fellow anthropologist, who helps her navigate the dangerous minefield of Lumad ancestral lands by advising her to keep quiet. Can Marian figure out who was really behind the murder and live to tell her story? Or will her headstrong nature get her buried alongside the murder victims?
