SBMA Chairman and Administrator Wilma T. Eisma received three coffee table books from National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIP) Commissioner for Rest of Luzon Rolando M. Rivera under the Epanaw Project of the agency at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC) on Thursday.
Epanaw, which means journey, showcases the plight of the indigenous people (IP) in the country throughout the years.
The first coffee table book, “Pagkilala” or Recognize, showcases the profiles of each ICC/IP. It contains information about their history, location, and overview of their social and daily lives.
The second coffee table book, “Paggalang” or Respect, features festivals and rituals that the ICCs/IPs practice in relation to important events such as birth and death, agricultural cycle, and the sacred and profane.
The third coffee table book, “Pagtaguyod” or Promote, contains travel destinations in ancestral domains for eco-tourism.
