6a] For a second history kuwentuhan to be held on December 30, 2008. The topic would depend on how the email discussions on Mindoro History play out. But the history kuwentuhan could involve more people and might involve paper presentations such as Eunice presenting the results of her research on “kuwentong bayan” in Occidental Mindoro. Gil suggested an interpretative reading of the writings of Rizal, December 30 being Rizal Day. In between the history kuwentuhans, the discussions will have to be virtual and the e-group becomes the hub.
