2. How were the Moro inhabitants of Pikit and its surrounding locales characterized in this excerpt? What does this passage suggest in relation to some of its inhabitants: “Not so long ago the commer cial bus never stopped in Pikit… Instead, it disgorged its passengers at the nearest small village, and they had to walk about two kilometers to the town proper carrying their baggage on their backs”?
The Pikit natives perceive the foreign invaders as a threat to their security. The natives shoot at any vehicle passing by their place as a way of protecting their land. For instance they killed the child who was left behind by the mother on the bus and the drunkard.
The excerpt pictures the Moro inhabitants as violent and inhuman because of their chaotic nature of shooting at strangers and vehicles going through their area. They are portrayed as ignorant people whose colonization didn’t create harmony rather resulted to violence in them.
