Beyond the Currents: the Culture and Power of Sulu
An alternative picture of Sulu focusing on the beauty of its culture and the glory of its past, Beyond the Currents presents the power and strength of Sulu when it was the gateway to international trade between Europe and China in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Beyond the Currents surveys the Sulu archipelago’s geography and strategic location, the Sulu sultanate, its Islam-rooted culture, its military might and anticolonial struggles, and its maritime trade as seen in various archival images and artifacts.
