Driven From Their Ancestral Land, The Manobo-Pulangiyon Struggles To Survive By The Side Of A Road

Press Release – For more than a century the Manobo-Pulangiyon of Bukidnon have been forced to live in the sidelines of their ancestral land, away from where their tribe can cultivate food, hunt for survival, or access water sources. Amnesty International Philippines held a press conference on Friday, ahead of the National Indigenous Peoples Month in October, to support 1,490 families of the Manobo-Pulangiyon, who have been desperately seeking for justice for the encroachment of their ancestral land.
