"This will be open to the public so this is an opportunity for Capiceņos to be in solidarity with the IPs, he added.

A bon fire will be put up during the activity that is a envisioned to be the IP communities' proclamation of their pride and an invitation to the rest of the Filipino community to foster a deeper understanding of their struggle to preserve their cultural heritage and their ancestral lands which are directly related to their basic right to life.

The week-long festivities will end on Oct. 6 with a closing program that will highlight in the symbolic turnover rite that will announce the host of the IP festival for 2010.
