House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez shares his thoughts on the implications of federalism on Indigenous Cultural Communities (ICCs) and Indigenous Peoples (IPs) during a round-table discussion on the issue. A member of the Manobo IPs, Alvarez gave assurances that under a federal government, the IPs will have their own state, enjoy self-governance, and manage their own natural resources. The discussion was organized by the House Committee on Indigenous Cultural Communities and Indigenous Peoples chaired by Rep. Nancy Catamco. The participants lauded the Speaker for his fearless advocacy to grant the IPs what they deserve under a federal government. / JAM/DM
