The indigenous peoples, as a sector, continue to be marginalized in Philippine society. History shows that they have been beset by countless problems both in the national and local arenas. Recently, on the national front, the constitutionality of the Indigenous Peoples Rights Act of 1997 (IPRA) was questioned in 1999. Under the Estrada regime very limited support went to the institutionalization of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP). Locally, the IP communities are contending with numerous issues affecting their wellbeing.
Under the new administration, efforts have been made to address some of these problems. President Macapagals first executive order created the Office of the Presidential Adviser for Indigenous Peoples Affairs (OPAIPA) to respond concretely to the IPs concerns, both national and local, including the re-establishment of the NCIP. The Supreme Court is addressing the legal questions concerning IPRA. However, much still remains to be done for and with the IPs.
The forum seeks to create awareness of the current situations being faced by the indigenous peoples through the experiences of OPAIPA, NCIP and IPC. The gathering will provide an opportunity for the Ateneo community and other sectors to understand better how they can assist IPs in their struggle for justice, equity and wellbeing in keeping with their traditions and cultures.
