The investigation concluded in favor of the original claims and denounced the possibility of a hoax.

  • Lumads - Indigenous Peoples of Mindanao, Philippines - are Rising for Revolution!

    Militarization of communities has led to forcible evacuations of Lumads. Their livelihood has been disrupted. Community infrastructure like schools, clinics, collective farms have been destroyed. And anywhere where military are deployed, not only is it the harassment of the communities that escalates - but also specifically violence against women and girls. Using the classic divide-and-rule approach, the Armed Forces of the Philippines has organized, armed, and trained indigenous paramilitaries to fight against their kin. Today over 40,000 Lumads have been forcibly displaced from ancestral domains due to militarization. And the military is deployed in this region to secure the interests of hundreds of mining concessions, that are plundering the country for gold, copper, nickel and chromi...

In 1988, President Corazon Aquino also conducted an inquiry and announced that the Tasaday were genuine and had nearly been victimized by unscrupulous scholars and businessmen who wanted their logging|timber- and mining|mineral-rich land. After the investigations, the Philippine National Museumand other official organizations began listing the Tasaday among the Philippines' indigenous people. The Tasaday are a small group of indigenous people from the tropical rain forests of South Cotabato in Mindanao who allegedly lived a Stone Age life. Throughout the 1970s the Tasaday received world-wide fame, and then again in the 1980s when Oswald Iten purportedly discovered that they were a hoax masterminded government officials close to President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Up until the mid twentieth century, the Tasaday as of 1971 could recall historical contact with two other local groups (known to the Tasaday as the Sandukasand the Tasafangs), apparently with similar lifeways to the Tasaday and also from the forest. Contact with the modern world (e.g. metal, cloth and cultivated foods) was not known to the 1970s Tasaday until the mid-20th century (exact date unknown, possibly the 1950s), when they met and began sporadically trading with Dafal, an itinerant member of various Philippine tribes including the Manobo Blit, Ubu and T'boli. (Note that these peoples, generally living outside the forest, were known to and at least somewhat familiar with the modern world at this time.) It is noteworthy, and helpful in comprehending the Tasaday's long-standing isolation, that many tribal peoples of Mindanao avoid the deep forest due to superstitions or beliefs.

The event was a venue for four women from Mindanao to tell their personal stories about their experiences working and living in Mindanao and the various roles they have assumed in the common effort to bring lasting peace to the region. The dialogue was held in light of the fact that women have always been portrayed as the victims during conflict, but rarely as active participants in the peace process. With the help of these actual accounts from women on the ground, the public, through the help of the media, may get access to previously untold stories of what really happens during the process of rebuilding and restructuring. Lina Sagaral Reyes, a journalist who has been reporting from the peace fronts of Mindanao since 2000, lamented the lack of economic support for journalistic efforts that aim to expose post-conflict stories of reconstruction. Tasneem Cadar Abdul Rauf, a peace and gender justice advocate and member of the Khadija Center for Muslim Women Studies, focused on issues related to the internal migration of Muslim women affected by conflict. She said that many Muslim women who migrated to Manila to seek better economic opportunities have experienced discrimination and trauma. Muslim women, according to Abdul Rauf, have become the face of poverty as the effect of conflict. Maimona Musa Didatu-Bayan, a public school teacher from Cotabato City and Central Mindanao Regional Secretary of Noorus-Salam (Light of Peace), was an evacuee and victim of war. She recounted her and her family's struggles at the evacuation center and the challenges they faced as they tried to recover what they had lost. Maimona was headstrong in her fight to survive. She worked her way through school and eventually got a degree and a job at the local school. Carmen Lauzon-Gatmaytan shared her thoughts from a peace advocate's perspective. Apart from the unrecognized efforts of women in the quest for peace, Gatmaytan stressed the fact that women, including members of the indigenous communities, should be assured a space at the peace negotiation table. The women who are working on the ground, she said, still need our support.

Wide of women chanting (English): "Yes to religious understanding now" 14. Mid of women chanting (English): "Yes to the Bangsamoro for peace and national unity." STORYLINE: Dozens of young Muslim women, together with members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, held a peace run on Sunday inside the country's main military camp in Manila, an event they called the Hijab Run for Peace. "It is to promote religious understanding, at the same time to show our support in terms of the signing of the peace agreement," said Bai Rohaniza Sumndad Usman of the Young Moro Professionals Network, referring to the government's peace deal with Muslim rebels in the southern region of Mindanao. Muslims there first took up arms decades ago to defend what they see as their traditional homeland under threat from Christians. Tens of thousands have died in ethnic clashes and massacres since then. Philippine officials hope the preliminary peace deal the government recently clinched with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front will eventually turn the 11,000-strong insurgent group into a formidable force against the remnants of the Abu Sayyaf and other radicals, including several Indonesian and Malaysian militants believed to be taking cover in the southern Mindanao region. The framework accord with the rebels was announced on 7 October by President Benigno Aquino III, and will be formally signed in Manila on Monday. The roadmap to peace in the Mindanao region is the first major step in the latest attempt to end a long and bloody insurgency waged by minority Muslims in the predominantly Christian nation. It carries the risk of failure that has been the fate of similar peace agreements, but strong domestic and international backing could boost its chances of success. "The Bangsamoro people are very much positive to the outcome of the peace talks and we are very much hopeful that the aspiration and the well being of the Bangsamoro will finally be put into priority by the government," Usman added. Under the deal, the Moro rebel group committed to deactivate its armed guerrilla units "beyond use" when both sides have finalised an agreement on Muslim autonomy. A final pact could be reached in three years, officials and the rebels say.
