BAGUIO CITY — The free prior and informed consent (FPIC) process is but one of the many fora for indigenous peoples to assert their right to land and to self-determination.
BAGUIO CITY — In line with the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, the indigenous youth of Barangay Yaway in Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya participated in a cultural workshop last August 3-5 with the theme, “Revitalizing the Indigenous Culture among the Youth towards Unity amidst Migration.”
August 9, 2018. So we are standing under the rain in the middle of Malcolm Square, Baguio City. My feet and knees are starting to ache from the cold (kasi saanak nga naglana iti kadadaras ko a rumuar idi agsapa—sign of aging, no doubt) and I underestimated the rainfall, thus I neglected to bring my rubber boots. I try to be still under my umbrella to prevent more exposure to the rain, but it is inevitable when I applaud the speakers. Speakers whose messages and songs made me forget the cold and rain for a while by the urgency of their messages.
