The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) in Central Luzon is seeking more and better protections for indigenous communities in the region.

According to a Philippine Information Agency report, NCIP Regional Director Roland Calde underscored that the biggest challenge faced by indigenous peoples (IPs) in the region was the protection of their ancestral domains.

“The struggle is the interference of their ancestral domains. There are those who are robbing their lands without their consent…We have to focus in aiding them in delineation and titling of their lands,” he was quoted as saying

Calde said IP groups were still struggling with lack of sufficient sources of livelihood and access to education which are two factors to consider in crafting plans for them.

“We are celebrating this month for us to look back on the journey of our indigenous peoples and advocate for the recognition, respect, and self-governance they have long been fighting for,” he said.
