Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On October - 13 - 2014

Damiana Eugenio, the Mother of Philippine Folklore, has passed away. Her anthologies of myth and folklore opened the eyes and hearts of many, including myself. Everyone who loves Philippine mythology and folklore owes her an immense debt. She has shaped generations. Our sympathies go out to those who knew her and lover her.

I’ve been told that the wake is at Claret Funeral Chapel, QC.
