Kalantiaw article erroneous, possibly vandalized
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)
NHI Resolution No. 12, S. 2004, etc.
Following the quote, the article continues, "The resolution called for: ...". with a list of specific actions. This is supported by a cite of a journal article. The problem is that, though the journal article does say that the the resolution called for these actions, the resolution did not call for those actions (I'm guessing that these actions may have been called for in a transmittal letter conveying a copy of the resolution to officials outside of the NHI). I see here that the editor who inserted that list of actions and the supporting cite was none other than myself. At that time, I had not seen a copy of the resolution.
I have changed "The resolution called for" to read, "The NHI called for". That is not a perfect solution, but it does not exactly contradict the journal article and it avoids contradicting the resolution. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 05:15, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
