Dacuno of Matatas Bookshop hails from Zambales in the Philippines and also lived in Laguna and Iloilo. She left her native province to study at the University of the Philippines Diliman and graduated with a degree in Theater Arts.
She was involved in protest street theater and cultural work in struggling indigenous people communities in the country. Even then she had helped organize a mini-library with books about IPs.
Dacuno is pursuing post-graduate studies in theater in New Zealand even as she continues with her many commitments to work and causes.
