ESPIRIDIONA BONIFACIO

The youngest sibling of Andres Bonifacio, she helped the Katipuneros even when she had just lost her husband, Teodoro Plata.

At a designated spot, she would wait for the rebels to give guns stolen or collected from attacks on Spanish soldiers. As they would race back into hiding, she would quickly stash the weapons under her big skirt.
