Hi. I would like to request for any available writings or documents from your agency regarding pre-colonial Philippines': 

1. Way of life,
2. Economy,
3. Culture,
4. Politics, 
5. Environmental treatment,
6. Religion, and
7. It's practice of animism. 

There is nothing much in the internet that expounds and tells about our country's pre-colonial history and I hope you can help me with it po. Thank you. 

P.s. My topic is all about identifying traditional ecological knowledge of pre-colonial Filipinos.
