As part of the national speaking tour, "Lakbay Lumad USA: The Continuing Journey of Mindanao's Indigenous Peoples for Peace with Justice", The International Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) present “San Francisco to Salupongan”. This evening will feature a discussion and cultural offering by delegates from the Lumad (indigenous) communities who are fighting for their human rights, cultural preservation and self-determination in the Philippines. It will feature cultural performances from several local artists.
This evening is also a direct opportunity for our local community to learn more about the indigenous people’s struggle in the Philippines and how it relates to our struggles of displacement and gentrification in the Bay Area. We will learn how we in the United States can further support our Lumad communities.
The Lumad are the largest conglomerate of indigenous tribes in the Southern Mindanao region of the Philippines. Like many indigenous groups throughout the world, they have been struggling to maintain their ancestral domains as well as their right to self-determination. For decades, the Lumad have resisted the plunder of their lands by transnational corporations and others who wish to extract and exploit the land for its natural resources. Their resistance has led to an intensification of human rights violations, as well as the militarization of their communities.
Through education, advocacy and international solidarity, we can advance the rights of the Lumad people. By building bridges between the issues impacting our local communities in the US and abroad, we can work together to build a more just world for all people.
