The Kalantiaw story and character are not mentioned in the Maragtas Legends, which were compiled in 1907 by Pedro Monteclaro. They were part of a hoax perpetrated by Jose Marco in 1914. William Henry Scott did not simply call the story a "hoax." He proved it was a hoax with ample documentary evidence and testimony.
In 1917, Josué Soncuya did not move the "legend" from Negros to Panay because it might be connected to the Binirayan festival. That festival did not exist until 1974 when it "was conceived by Governor Evelio B. Javier." (According to Wikipedia article.) Soncuya gave no reason for the change other than he found a few words in Marcos' text that were in his (Soncuya's) language. P. Morrow 13:51, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
