NCIP approves CADTs of Agtas in Isabela

Largest ancestral domain

Tuguegarao City (11 February) -- The largest ancestral domain of Indigenous Peoples of Cagayan Valley was successfully passed the final approval of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) en banc.

Regional Director Ruben Bastero of NCIP Region 2 said two Certificate of Ancestral Domain Titles (CADTs) were approved recently in addition to the nine ancestral domain titles which were distributed last year.

Bastero said the 340,000 hectares of ancestral domains were distributed to Agtas of Palanan, Divilacan, Dinapigue and San Mariano of Isabela and 72,000 hectares for the Bugkalots of Nueva Vizacaya.

"The ancestral domain given to the Agtas in Isabela is the largest domain ever approved for the region which is located in Sierra Madre", Bastero said.

The Director explained that because of the lifestyle of Aetas of going from one place to another to look for food, they have determined their ancestral domains which are now given to them.

He said their role is to assist the IPs to develop their lands; however, there are restrictions as to the activities to develop the area.

"They must develop their areas to be productive agriculturally but not to sell or destroy the forest, instead they have to protect and preserve its natural resources", Bastero added.

Bastero further said that they will continue to monitor and assist the Indigenous Peoples to ensure their productivity and contribute to the development of the country.

In totality, Bastero said they have already distributed 960,000 hectares of CADTS to more or less 40,000 IPs in the Region. (Oliver Baccay/PIA 2) [top]
