Indigenous Peoples: Their Identity and Skills for Economic Sustainability


Their Identity, Brief History and Reality

The Mamanwa tribe is the only Indigenous group in Surigao and is the most disadvantaged and seems or nearly extinct. According to the survey, they are the number one in illiteracy among the 110 tribes in the country. They are not more than five thousand in Surigao del Norte living in 15 Mamanwa Communities in the province. They are mostly farmers who view land as their ancestors’ property even if each family tills a parcel of land. They are poor in many aspects yet they are intelligent people given the chance for schooling. Due to their high illiteracy, they are voiceless and easily taken into illegal activities and abuses even among themselves. They become victims of injustice and discrimination among the lowlanders They too are caught between forces: the military and the rebels aside from the group of bandits.

Originally, the Mamanwas live in huts far from each other, due to their way of living: hunting and gathering foods from the forest. However, their once virgin forest as source of their livelihood is depleted due to mining and logging thus, they are experiencing hunger. Much as they wanted to settle down and cultivate their land, continuous encroachment of the lowlanders and investors made them feel insecure in their own territory.

They have traditional leaders and justice system but are also weakened by the influence of the lowlanders and mining companies.

Culturally, the richness of it is still expressed in rituals, dances, and in their spoken dialect. Until this time, there is minimal written document about their culture. One reason is because of illiteracy. There is a fear of loosing their culture because the young generation are very fast

in assimilating the culture of the lowlanders. Aside from these, their indigenous skills, musical instruments, knowledge and practices are pirated by the outsiders.


Ecologically, the forest cover is thinning which causes erosion, floods, and the dramatic changes of the topography of the land. Non IPs took advantage of the bounty of the forest, depriving them of the main source of livelihood, their ancestral domain. They plant bananas and crops like camote, carlang, and other crops which sometimes failed to produce and that they have no choice except to give in to mining and logging companies as cheap labour for their ‘daily fare’.

Skills for Economic Sustainabilty

· Can produce abaca from the forest.

· Able to plant root crops together as a community and able to harvest enough for the whole year round.
