During the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines, there were several revolts against of the Spanish colonial government by native-born Filipinos and Chinese, often with the goal of re-establishing the rights and powers that had traditionally belonged to tribal chiefs and Chinese traders. Most of these revolts failed because the majority of the native population sided up with the Spanish colonial government and fought with the Spanish to put down the revolts. The most important of those revolts led to the expulsion of a number of Chinese from the Philippines, but they were later allowed to return. * 1 16th century * 1.1 Dayami Revolt (1567) * 1.2 Lakandula and Sulayman Revolt (1574) * 1.3 Pampangenos Revolt (1585) * 1.4 Conspiracy of the Maharlikas (1587-1588) * 1.5 Revolts Against the Tribute (1589) * 1.6 Magalat Revolt (1596) * 2 17th century * 2.1 Igorot Revolt (1601) * 2.2 The Chinese Revolt of 1603 * 2.3 Tamblot Revolt (1621-1622) * 2.4 Bancao Revolt (1621-1622) * 2.5 Itneg Revolt (1625-1627) * 2.6 Cagayan Revolt (1639) * 2.7 Ladia Revolt(1643) * 2.8 Sumuroy Revolt (1649-50) * 2.9 Maniago Revolt (1660) * 2.10 Malong Revolt (1660-1661) * 2.11 Almazan Revolt (January 1661) * 2.12 Chinese Revolt of 1662 * 2.13 Panay Revolt (1663) * 3 18th century * 3.1 Dagohoy Rebellion (1744-1829) * 3.2 Agrarian Revolt of 1745 * 3.3 Silang Revolt (1762-1763) * 4 19th century * 4.1 Novales Revolt (1823) * 4.2 Cavite Mutiny (1872) * 4.3 Basi Revolt (1807) * 4.4 Pule Revolt (1840-1843) * 5 See also * 6 References|
Dayami Revolt (1567)
The Dayami Revolt was a revolt against Spanish colonial rule led by the Filipino rebel, Dayahi, in the island of Mactan in the Philippines, in 1567. Lakandula and Sulayman Revolt (1574)
