"'Back from the Crocodile’s Belly' is a book of power—a record of severe struggle to hang on to our soul and its unbroken link to the womb of our ancestral world wherever the Filipino may be. Dedicated to the babaylanes—our shamanic ancestors, many fed to crocodiles by the Spanish conquistador in the attempt to wipe out their world—this book offers a harvest of homecoming. Here the lived experiences of our kababayan carving expatriate lives in “the belly of the beast” links arms with the continuing struggle in the motherland to keep alive what it still remembers of that ancestral world. With passion, wit, and grace, racial memory propels us to evolve as we meet ourselves and link hands in that blessed moment 'before the invention of violent hierarchies and the beauty-killing empires, machines, markets, standing armies, corporations, and governments that now threaten life on the planet.'" —Sylvia Mayuga, thrice winner, Philippine National Book Award,
