The Alibata Forum, Ancient Baybayin Scripts Network, and the Baybayin List was created and formed in the year of 2002 to help supply the growing demand of giving a growing community that advocated the highest standards for accurate education and discussion on Alibata, Philippines, & Austronesian Studies.
-Since then, it created opportunities to meet or debate with authors and scholars in the many scientific fields that do research on the Philippines, Indigenous Tribes of the Philippines, Philippine Linguistics, Aboriginal communities of the Philippines, Kapampangan Studies, Ethnolinguistic Groups within the Philippines, language rights,Baybayin Artists, Austronesia, alphabetic/syllabaries/logographic writing systems, Alibata and Baybayin Scripts, and Philippine Studies.
-Because there was a large community who wish to know more about their roots or about the Philippines, we carried the goal of bringing the 1st and only forum that can help anybody learn about Philippine cultures and history, and authentic information on Alibata/Baybayin Scripts and Regional Cultures and Arts. We promote accurate, and well-researched, well-supported educational information on topics related to Alibata, heritage, identity, linguistic rights, and raise awareness of the cultural diversity of the Philippines.
-The Alibata forumís formation was supported by members who wished to do interactive networking through academic discussions and scientific dialogue, so that they can meet other people who can help them answer questions that are as old as their personal journey in knowing their own history.
-Our Forum helps answer questions about the Philippines, Cebuano archaeology, Prehistoric Bicolano Art, Philippine Studies, Mangyans, Hanunůo, Buhid, Tagbanwa,or their familyís cultural lineage.
-Revitalizing & documenting endangered languages in Philippine scripts.
-Adventures in Alibata/Baybayin scripts is the many journeys of one's desire to seek the truth of their roots.
