PIA Press Release

NCIP to conduct IP Summit in Nueva Vizcaya

Presidentiables as guests

Tuguegarao City (12 February) -- The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) Region 2 has invited presidential candidates to grace the Indigenous Peoples (IP) summit in Nueva Vizcaya.

Regional Director Ruben S. Bastero said leaders of 16 tribes in Nueva Vizcaya will converge in the capital town of Nueva Vizcaya to fastrack plans and programs for the indigenous peoples of Region 2.

Bastero said are looking forward for the positive response of the presidentiables as guests during the summit to lay down their platforms for the IPs. It would also be the chance of the IPs to present their plans and programs to the soon to be leaders of the country.

The Director said the summit aims to unify the IP leaders to serve as model to other IP communities in the region.

"This will open the gate of Cagayan Valley for the self-governance and empowerment of the Indigenous Peoples and to promote the cultural integrity of Nueva Vizcaya's IPs", he added.

Bastero also said one of the proposals of the IP group is the enactment of law giving a seat to IP leaders to the local councils as a sectoral representative. The sectoral representation of IPs in each council will play a vital role in the promotion of programs, projects and activities that affect their lives as a whole.

It is very important that our IPs will be given due recognition in all planning activities of the government to ensure that their cultural concerns will be preserved, and their livelihood and other needs will be met. (Oliver B./PIA 2) [top]
