We wanted to know what some of our writers from different parts of the country have to say when they write about Mindanao, especially in the wake of the Marawi siege; the declaration and succeeding extensions of martial law; the continuing displacement of Lumad communities entangled in the war between the government and insurgents; and also, the peaceful establishment of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, all in what seemed like a very long couple of years. . . . Perhaps, the call for works about or for Mindanao need not remain in one issue. What’s certain is that Banwa will welcome more contributions that speak about our home.
