Abstract It is assumed that basahan or native poem, a form of Higaonon literature, is a story of the Higaonon's experience, their notion of nation, and identity (or their I-ness). Based on Salazar's Pantayong Pananaw (literally 'perspective of being we'), this paper analyzes the assumptions that basahan speaks of themselves and for themselves. The conclusion shows that basahan is a narration of the Higaonon's value of identity, nation, and space. It is also a story of their location or place or their ancestral domain.
