Datu Press® aims to reach a level of cultural awakening in the Philippines that inspires unity, progress, and nationalistic pride through the creation of articles, books, prints, and music.

Our inspiration comes from Philippine precolonial subjects: the sultanates, rajanates, and datuships; the Lumads and mountain chiefdoms; the Philippines’ ancient relations with countries Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Sumatra, Cambodia, and China; and the Binabaylan and folklore materials.

We drive our Cultural Revolution™ through these advocacy programs:

  1. Publication: creation of novels, reference materials, and online articles
  2. Graphic Design: artworks, posters, and notebooks
  3. Streetwear: culturally charged clothing and accessories
  4. Music: development and recording of indigenous and contemporary music
  5. Creative Writing: literary training and education programs
