The Pan-Malayan consciousness was voiced during the struggle of Apolinario Mabini, dubbed the “Brain of the Revolution.” While the Philippine Revolution of 1896 was the struggle for national independence, Mabini understood it in the broader perspective of the liberation of all Malayan peoples. Mabini reminded his countrymen that they were “malayos-filipinos.” Mabini conceived the Malay Archipelago as “Malaysia.” In his 2020 paper “Historicizing Malayness: Spanish Colonialism and the Emergence of the ‘Hispanized Malay’, Fernando A. Santiago, Jr. provided a logic to the development of the idea of Malayness among Filipinos as articulated by the illustrados in the 19th century. The fate of the Filipinos in the Malay Archipelago is the product of history.
