The Long Road to Daraghuyan: Chronicles of an Ancestral Domain Claim

(Based on interviews with Bae Inatlawan, Bae Malugdang and Datu Dumapal)

“Duon ag aragi sa gagawan hug uyamuhan.”  (Love grows from sincere caring and commitment)

For Bae Inatlawan Adelina D. Tarino and her fellow claimants belonging to the Bukidnon tribe of Malaybalay City, Bukidnon, this is what the Daraghuyan Ancestral Domain Claim is all about, the same reason why it cannot just be ignored or hindered by anybody.

Cultural and historical bases of the claim

Daraghuyan, one of the sacred peaks in Mt. Kitanglad Range, has been adopted as the name of the entire ancestral domain of the Bukidnon tribe. Legend says that it came from the word daraghuy, which means a passage to the afterlife for the souls of baylans (shamans). Here the living could hear the lamentations of their ancestors. The mountain reminds them to take care of their kagbatasan (culture) and tradition to appease the spirit of the place.

The ancestral domain (4,203 hectares) lies within the political jurisdiction of Barangay Dalwangan, Malaybalay City. At present, the tribe considers Sitio Inhandig as their cultural center, the place where they started anew after being driven out from Sitio Sanggaya, their previous abode, by a wealthy and influential capitalist. Bae Inatlawan and other members of the Docenos clan had lived there.

Mt. Kitanglad Range, to which Daraghuyan belongs, is sacred to the Bukidnon, Higaonon and Talaandig tribes because it was the only mountain in Mindanao not totally submerged by the Great Deluge. According to legend, a man named Apu Agbibilin was instructed by his mulin-ulin (guardian spirit) to climb the peak in order to be saved. After the flood, the same mulin-ulin told him to look for a woman who also survived. Their offspring became the seeds of the tribes of Mindanao.

“Tell your sons and daughters to always perform a ritual by offering chickens and pigs here in Kitanglad to cleanse the sins of your ancestors that polluted it and to prevent illnesses on your descendants. Do not commit sins and take care of the mountains, rivers, trees, lands and all things therein so that calamity will not again occur [in Mt. Kitanglad],” the mulin-ulin further told Apu Agbibilin.

Beginnings of the claim

Belief in this order from the mulin-ulin prompted Datu Makaatul, father of Bae Inatlawan, to acquire legal title to their territory. In the early 1970s, the datu went to the Bureau of Forest Development to claim ownership of Sugod Area, although the Commission on National Integration had existed at the time. He was unsuccessful, as Sugod was classified as timberland hence inalienable and non-disposable as per the 1973 Constitution. Nevertheless, the agency received his claim and allowed his family to stay put, although they lived in constant worry over their territorial rights.

Twenty years after, the same mulin-ulin ordered Datu  Makaatul to go to the Forest Management Bureau again to renew his claim and inform the office that they only wanted to live peacefully in the area. Then governor Ernesto Tabios requested the office to issue a stewardship certificate. The latter subsequently conducted a survey, which produced a map showing a claimed area of 10,000 hectares. But a certificate of ownership was not handed to him.  However, the tribe has used the said map in re-filing their claim and they continued living in the area largely unencumbered by forestry laws and regulations.

Through the years, Datu Makaatul had not been blind to general changes in land laws. His mulin-ulin would always warn him that there will come a time when his descendants ki, claim in the name of Datu Dumapal and made them aware that even supposed friends could not be trusted and might try to outsmart them. The PSTFAD told them to wait for the result of the application, which was never acted upon.

By 1995, aside from the unified claim, at least 14 individual applications for ancestral domain claims inside Mt. Kitanglad were filed. Daraghuyan was twelfth on the list. But Mt. Kitanglad Range became a PA making the Daraghuyan claimants anxious that they would be more deprived of their rights over their territory. They said they were not informed that their area had become part [of the PA]. Hence, they were left with no choice but to support their fellow indigenous peoples by joining the unified claim.

The PSTFAD and PAMB were now tossing between themselves the responsibility of deciding on ancestral domain claims. They tried to resolve the issue by letting the claimants decide whether they wanted a unified claim or separate ones. The tribal leaders of the three tribes agreed to push for a unified claim. PSTFAD published the tribes’ agreement in newspapers. Subsequently, a number of adverse parties who are also residents of the park filed a petition against the unified claim. The head claimant failed to answer within the 15-day period the issues raised by petitioners.

Cracks in the Unified Claim Front

President Fidel V. Ramos in 1998 signed the Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Act (IPRA) or R.A 8371. The law seeks to strengthen ancestral domain claims. 1999 and 2000 were a transition period in the implementation of the law, to give ample time for the turnover of application documents filed at DENR to the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), an office created under the IPRA. At this time, the Daraghuyan claimants still waited for the unified claim to be acted upon so that they could exercise their tenurial rights. Datu Dumapal attended many meetings and seminar workshops on matters relating to the unified claim to enable the tribe to be always updated on its development. The claimants needed to comprehend the NIPAS Act, IPRA and other laws in relation to their aspirations. They always convened a meeting in Inhandig for this purpose.

Then Datu Dumapal became sick. In a meeting, the council of elders agreed to replace him with Bae Inatlawan Adelina Tarino as representative of the tribe. Bae Inatlawan decided to study the processes involved in applying for an ancestral domain title.  She said she often visited the NCIP office and befriended the staff so that she could easily ask them about matters related to CADT. She soon became familiar with the processes.

But until late 2001, or four years after it was created, the NCIP had not approved a single CADT. Meanwhile, conflict erupted between DENR and Datu Migketay Saway, the head claimant for unified claim, when the former tried to confiscate lumber allegedly acquired by the latter illegally. Datu Migketay resisted the confiscation. The DENR responded by airing the incident on local radio, which Migketay took as a personal insult. He declared a sala (cultural penalty) against a number of DENR officials and personnel and demanded coins, carabaos (water buffalos), and chickens, among others, as payment. The datu increased the penalty after each particular turn of the moon that the DENR failed to respond or the parties failed to reach a settlement. Time came when the penalty had reached hundreds of carabaos and had become impossible for the DENR to comply with. In several PAMB meetings, the sala was a major item in the agenda. To this day, however, it has remained unresolved.

At the time, Bae Inatlawan was Migketay’s de facto spiritual adviser being his main shaman. She realized in the course of taking part in sala activities that her tribe would have applied more diplomatic cultural processes in dealing with the DENR. Moreover, it dawned on her that with their differences in terms of customary justice system it would be difficult for the Bukidnon tribe to join the Talaandig under one claim. Bae’s realization started the rift between her and Migketay, which led to the Daraghuyan Council of Elders reviving their separate claim.

Revival of the Daraghuyan Claim

Bae Inatlawan and her group also realized that the unified claim was taking longer than expected making them anxious over their security in their territory. Hence, on September 26, 2003, they filed their CADT application at the NCIP-Bukidnon office. The decision resolved one problem but gave rise to another: where to find funds for the processing of the claim. The NCIP provincial office has received nearly 200 CADT applications. Yet owing to its minimal funding from the central government the agency would only prioritize one application per year. The claimants asked for funds from the local government, to no avail. They were hesitant to approach just any NGO for fear they would just be used and abused.

In late 2003, Easterluna Canoy, then a master’s degree student at Ateneo de Manila University who managed the Kitanglad Integrated NGOs from 1996 to 2002, asked for Bae Inatlawan’s permission to make the Daraghuyan community the subject of her thesis. Bae agreed since she has trust in Easter as partner during KIN’s first project in Mt. Kitanglad. The ritual for the research’s Free and Prior Informed Consent, on November 4, 2003, coincided with an information campaign for the claimants by the NCIP signaling the slow but continuing progress of the claim.

Although there was yet no formal agreement between them, the claimants and KIN started to work together in complying with the requirements of the claim. These included the census, genealogical survey, collection of anthropological data and translation of documents from Binukid to English. KIN, using its remaining funds, shouldered some of the expenses. A substantial amount, however, was needed for the installation of boundary markers. Fortunately, in 2004, KIN obtained some funding from the Belgian-based Broederlijk Delen. Actual installation began in 2005.

Prior to the installation of boundary markers, on March 18, 2005, posting and serving of notices to the adjacent claimants were also conducted. After more than a month without receiving objections, on April 28, 2005, the claimants started putting up the markers. They completed the work on January 26, 2006.

In 2005, the Daraghuyan Council of Elders passed a resolution recognizing KIN as their assisting NGO, after a leveling-off meeting between KIN and NCIP-Bukidnon, on April 15. Funds for succeeding activities for the claim, until its approval on March 19, 2009, would mainly come from Oxfam Hong Kong. The OHK grant focused on integrated support program to ensure traditional governance be recognized in the protected area. Although the issuance of CADT is the main goal, but other activities were equally given importance such as the establishment of wildlife sanctuary, livelihood (home gardening and coffee production), empowerment of women elders and youths, ion, education and awareness campaigns, community mobilization with NCIP especially in the survey and validation, and the technical assistance necessary for the formulation of the tribe’s Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development Protection Plan. The Volunteer Service Organization, Broederlijk Delen, and the Foundation for the Philippine Environment also granted varying amounts.

On April 25 of the same year, the Special Provincial Task Force that would validate the claim was formed. Two days after, the SPTF members – community representatives, NCIP, KIN and PASu – met to schedule activities. Validation of proofs and IEC were then conducted in Sitio Inhandig, where the SPTF interviewed at least 10 % of the total number of claimants, the minimum required by law. The elders performed an overnight kaliga to appease the spirits and for a peaceful and successful activity. During the ritual the elders related, through chanting and limbay (songs), the histories of the mountains in their territory, their sacredness and importance to the Bukidnon tribe.

Validations of the census, genealogical data, and testimonies of elders were conducted on July 26, August 16, and November 28, 2006, respectively, in Dalwangan. Afterwards the documents underwent revision, the third actually at the time. Further revisions and new sets of documents would be added to the claim book in the next two years, as the NCIP would change every now and then the documentary prescriptions.

The perimeter survey, on the other hand, could have been done in February 2006 if not for the objection posed by the pro-unified claim group. At that time, KIN, the NCIP and the claimants had signed a memorandum of agreement on the work and financial plan [for the survey] which amounted to at least half a million pesos. Given the characteristic delays, however, in the processing of documents by the NCIP and the then uncertain outcome of the claim, it would be hard to convince donor agencies to support such activity. KIN could only allocate a relatively small amount from the grants since these were allocated for other activities, too, while the claimants could only offer free labor as their counterpart.

It was not until February 27, 2008 that NCIP engineers arrived to finally do the survey based on work order number 02-02-08. The survey was finished on March 28, 2008 and validated in Dalwangan on July 23, 2008 with small revisions. With the survey now completed, the Regional Ancestral Domain Team and SPTF held a meeting on October 6, 2008 during which they recommended to the NCIP central office to schedule deliberations on the Daraghuyan claim. The first and second deliberations took place in Davao City, in November 2008. Prior to the deliberations, Bae Inatlawan, the Council of Elders, Bata Hu Tribu and KIN produced 12 copies of the CADT claim book, four of them original, an effort that took 2½ weeks including one week of working overnight. Financial constraint made it more difficult but Bae Inatlawan and her group managed to accomplish it.

On February 2, 2009, Bae Inatlawan and KIN went to NCIP central office to follow up the map of Daraghuyan produced by the agency’s surveyors. Bae got hold of the map and a week later its technical description was given to the NCIP provincial office. In the same month, upon receiving the technical description, the NCIP provincial office complied with the publication of a notice on the claim for 15 days in a local newspaper. And since there had been no objections by adverse parties within the 15- day period the NCIP central office held the third and final deliberation, on March 19, 2009.

Taming the Wild Dogs

Bae Inatlawan, the brave and headstrong head claimant of Daraghuyan, started to study the ancestral domain claim documents his father left to her. That was the time the DENR created the PSTFAD. She would walk the 15-kilometer trail from Inhandig to Dalwangan, rain or shine, just to attend to their claim documents. During her first visit to the office, she said, a dream occurred to her. It went as follows:

“The night before I went to PSTFAD to submit our documents, I dreamed about wild dogs. When I gave the papers to the staff I was so surprised that there were wild dogs inside the office that looked like lions. I noticed that the dogs were eating away my papers. I rather became afraid and retreated. Later, I understood that it was the message my ancestors told me, that the CADT application will encounter many problems. But we are not afraid.”

She narrated another problem that confronted their claim: their relations with the Bukidnons of Barangay Kapitan Angel. At first the Council of Elders of Kapitan Angel had no objections over the Daraghuyan claim. They always participated in all Daraghuyan CADT activities such as census and meetings.  Bae Eniza Balansag even nominated Bae Inatlawan as the head claimant.  As a result, Bae Inatlawan was strongly endorsed by Kapitan Angel and Daraghuyan Council of Elders. They then agreed to file one application covering the two groups.

Bae Inatlawan was confident over the friendship with Kapitan Angel and being a lumad and a good leader she wanted to help them. She linked the latter with BUTRIDCE (Bukidnon Unified Tribal Development Council), a group that aims to assist the lumads in their struggles and where Bae Inatlawan served as board member and Datu Ompongan as chairman. But for unexplained reasons, the Kapitan Angel Council of Elders filed their own application. Since the Daraghuyan group dislikes having any misunderstanding with them, they sought for a peaceful settlement.  They attended a meeting in Kapitan Angel to explain the context of the Daraghuyan claim. During the meeting both parties agreed on filing separate claims. On December 7, 20004, Datu Lunayon signed a document on this agreement.

Still another obstacle came. Since part of the Daraghuyan claim falls within the protected area, NCIP-Bukidnon required the claimants to seek the endorsement of the PAMB. Park Superintendent Felix Mirasol Jr., being the secretariat of PAMB, in turn asked for the endorsement of Dalwangan Barangay Council for the claim. On September 7, 2004, Bae Inatlawan attended the session of the barangay council to follow up the request for endorsement. Unfortunately, the barangay refused to give an endorsement due to some misconceptions about the head claimant. And on April 4, 2005, they instead filed a petition against Bae Inatlawan before the NCIP provincial office declaring that she is incapable of representing the tribe and that she is not an original resident of Dalwangan.

Bae related:

“They (Barangay local officials) did not yet understand the intention of our claim. They did not understand the purpose of our ancestral domain claim; some of them only understood CBFM (Community-Based Forest Management).  In the meeting, I explained to them the context of the claim and what they can do to the tribe and of how our ancestors wanted this, but they only crumpled our letter and declared that no matter what happens, they will not endorse the claim.  This hurt me very much.”

NCIP, upon receiving the petition, decides to convene a dialogue, on November 19, 2004. There Kagawad Esperanza Martinez denied that the barangay would not endorse the claim but that it only wanted some clarifications on the number of hectares claimed. She said they would support the claim provided they would be informed of CADT related activities. When the PAMB conducted a public hearing in Dalwangan on December 12, 2004 to discuss the NIPAS Act and IPRA nobody voiced objections to the Daraghuyan claim, although the endorsement from the barangay took longer than expected.

NCIP also required the Daraghuyan claimants to obtain the signatures of the elders from adjacent territories. Six prominent elders consented to and supported the claim. A document at the NCIP showed that Ursencio Tingalan, a Bukidnon tribe member who lived in Bato, Inhandig, had filed another claim covering Daraghuyan. But in a signed statement he said:

“Upon knowing the application of Daraghuyan, I sought permission from their council of elders to join their claim. I attended one of their monthly meetings and it was agreed that we will be included in the claim as there was no conflict between us.”

His group was then included in the census and genealogical data.

Then Impasugong mayor Mario Okinlay, who chaired the PAMB tribal affairs committee, asked the barangay council for its endorsement leaving the latter no choice but to issue one. The PAMB, Mt. Kitanglad Council of Elders, Malaybalay City government and the Provincial Consultative Body on Indigenous Peoples subsequently endorsed the claim, too.

Hopes dimmed, however, when early in 2006, the group advocating unified claim filed a petition at the NCIP which states that the Daraghuyan claim should be disapproved, saying the Mt. Kitanglad Council of Elders had agreed on a unified claim. The petition accused the Daraghuyan group of violating cultural law because the agreement on unified claim was sealed by a ritual. The NCIP found out, however, that the Talaandig group led by Datu Migketay had not actually filed a CADT application ever since the passage of IPRA. Moreover, the agency retrieved the old Daraghuyan application which Datu Makaatul, father of the head claimant, submitted during the time of the OSCC.

In a meeting held to clarify the matter Daraghuyan claimants were also confident they had not violated any cultural offense.

Bae asked the body: “What are the cultural violations or wrongdoings we have done in all our efforts in taking care of what our ancestors left to us? Is there anything wrong in documenting the proofs of ownership and claiming our ancestral domain?”

Datu Dumapal answered that the position paper against the Daraghuyan claim might be correct in relation to the culture of the Talaandig tribe in Sungko, Lantapan. “But for us the Bukidnon tribe in the Daraghuyan domain we have our own cultural basis in claiming our domain and we are doing the right thing. Based on the stories and history told by our ancestors there are three sets of beliefs of the tribes.  First is damlas, a belief handed by a famous and powerful ancestor called Datu Agyu whose exploits are told in ulaging (chants). Damlas is war (pangayaw) oriented and shows courage to fight. Ulaging accounts say the shamans assigned an area to Datu Agyu and his followers could have imbibed his courage in battle,” he said.

“Second is pina matuus, a religion of peace and harmony. Folk stories called nanangun say that this belief was introduced by Datu Bataay, who lived in Mt. Nakabangku, which is inside the Daraghuyan ancestral domain. It is his religion that was handed down to us and we are living it now,” Datu Dumapal said.

“Third is langkat, a belief espoused by an ancestor named Datu Dapadapa. He had no teachings of his own and merely adopted those taught by damlas and pina matuus wherever he went,” he added.

“Basically, every group has its own area or territory, heritage and beliefs established by our ancestors. We have worship areas inside our territory and the other tribes also had theirs. But in our prayers and rituals we give respect to the guardian spirits in the other domains.

“I also heard from my parents that we in the Bukidnon tribe follow or practice the pina matuus belief. That is why we are imposing very light penalties for violations to attain peace and justice within a short time,” the datu continued.

“It is good that we are united, but we can not also adopt those beliefs and practices which we neither experienced nor inherited,” Datu Dumapal, alluding to the assertion for a unified claim, said.

He further explained the decision to file a separate claim stemmed from these cultural differences, adding KIN could not be faulted for responding to the Daraghuyan group’s request for assistance.

Bae Inatlawan also related that the Bukidnon’s sala is different from the Talaandig’s. Based on a belief called palayaga, a conflict, no matter how big or small, can be settled with the blood of either a chicken or a pig or even with a one-peso coin. It is important that conflicts should be resolved within the day. She said this is not an argument for non-cooperation with

other tribes [in Mt. Kitanglad] but rather a way to avoid conflicts between them. It is better to file individual claims and form a federation later to give every tribe the freedom to exercise its own culture and traditions in its own territory.

On August 2, 2006, a preliminary conference was conducted at NCIP-Bukidnon office with all 13 individual claimants within Mt. Kitanglad. The head claimant of the unified claim, Datu Migketay Saway and his wife and KIN staff attended. It was in preparation for the clarificatory conference scheduled on August 9, 2006 to resolve issues surrounding the claims.

During the clarificatory conference the representative of the unified claim walked out.

On August 30 of the same year, the Mt. Kitanglad Council of Elders performed a panluntay, a ritual meant to ask forgiveness from the spirits that attended the rite during the conference in June 1997 where some tribal leaders agreed on filing a unified claim. The panluntay would free the individual claimants of responsibilities under the 1997 agreement, as it would appease the spirits and not create wounds between them and the humans involved.

Subsequently, the NCIP received another petition from Kapitan Angel and some individuals in Dalwangan. The petition attempted to discredit Daraghuyan ancestors and Bae Inatlawan’s reputation as a shaman, her identity as a Bukidnon and her residency in the area. It further alleged that her father was not really buried inside the domain. In short, the petition accused the claimants of not having any link to the land that they have claimed.

Bae Inatlawan approached the persons who signed the petition to ask them about it. Her inquiry revealed that they were ignorant as to its real nature. They said somebody came and asked them to sign an attendance sheet for a ritual that was held in Mt. Tungan-tungan. The Daraghuyan Council of Elders obtained signatures supporting these statements and submitted them to NCIP Chairman Eugenio Insigne. The NCIP considered the reply and went on with the processing.

To this day, there have been no protests from adverse groups after at least 15 days from the date a notice on the claim was published in a local newspaper. Thus the NCIP scheduled the third and final deliberation on March 19, 2009.

The Parable of the Cooked Rice

“We ask you to give us our land so we can take care of our fathers’ sacred places and live there peacefully.  Now that the rice is cooked, are you not going to let us eat it?  You people who are learned and educated, we do not have the intelligence to match yours.  And we do not have any weapon because we do not wish to fight you but to humbly ask to open your heart to the simple people of the tribe.”

 Datu Pagalungan addressing opponents of the Daraghuyan claim, 9 August 2006

“Convincing people of our intention is the most difficult thing in the processing of the Daraghuyan claim,” Bae Inatlawan related, adding it required a lot of courage to get endorsements from concerned agencies and groups. “Aside from making the local officials understand about the intent of the claim there are also people who appear to be good but are actually full of deceit. Some friends will turn their backs on you. You’d never know who your friends are; you need be aware of them. But never quarrel with them, just explain to them your good purpose,” she said.

“Our effort [in processing the claim] is more than enough. Our sacrifices have been countless. It has almost been 30 years that we have waited for this title. In working on the documents especially the genealogical data, there were neither days nor nights, neither rain or shine. I worked hard even when I was sick. I just used herbal medicines to cure my sickness just to finish my work and comply with requirements.”

Bae Inatlawan said it is important to ask permission from the spirits via a ritual before undergoing any CADT related activity. It is a basic cultural requirement to ask the spirit of the sun who gives us day, spirit of the moon and stars, spirit of the wind who gives us life, and spirit of money without whom many things would not have been fulfilled, she explained. Should the title be awarded to them, Bae said they will hold a thanksgiving ritual to thank “the NGO, NCIP, PASu, adjacent barangays, those who endorsed the CADT, and even the barangay officials who despite their reluctance issued an endorsement. The best thing to do now is to forgive those people. Everyone is bound to commit mistakes.”

Bae Inatlawan recalled too the difficulties in doing the census. “Some people in the area did not understand the ancestral domain. Most migrants were blind about the matter and you have to explain and convince them that this activity is good for everyone. Some did not want to be included in the census. Most lumads who have lived long in the area consented to and joined the AD activities. IPRA and the NIPAS law were properly explained to these people and they trusted the head claimant, for her merits are known among the Bukidnon tribe.”

Cultural practices like panlihi aided Bae Inatlawan a lot in getting the attention of persons she needed to talk to. She said it made those persons listen and weigh the significance of things, e.g. the endorsements of the claim. Daraghuyan elders said panlihi is not magic but guidance from the spirits that helps make difficult things easy. During the first and second deliberations on the CADT application, she said, she sent with Ms Shirlene Sario, provincial NCIP officer, a team of 20 spirits so that she could be assisted in explaining the claim. She said there is nothing wrong in this practice since their claim covers a sacred domain and the home of their ancestors.

It is also important that in filing an ancestral domain claim the group should cooperate, advised Bae Inatlawan. The Council of Elders should attend every meeting. Cooperation and patience will be the main key for the group’s success, she said.

Fulfilling the Dreams of Their Father

Since the 1970s, the Bukidnon tribe has always wanted to obtain title for their land in order to freely exercise their kagbatasan or culture and tradition in the area. It took more than 30 years for the tribe to succeed in their efforts as NCIP’s Commission En Banc had finally approved their application. The Bukidnons have overcome the wild dogs, the rice has been cooked, and they wanted to savor its abundance. They are now waiting for the gong to call them and, with the spirits, dance the tinambol in festive celebration.

The claimants want to fulfill the dreams of Datu Makaatul, their father, of preserving their culture and sacred areas and performing their rituals there. Kagbatasan, language as well as traditional arts and music should be taught to the young. Another way of preserving culture is strengthening traditional governance. As to rituals, they said they have to regularly perform one in Mt. Apolang, to prevent a hole of fire there from becoming a volcano. They said their ancestors had reminded them to perform a ritual there so as to appease the bad spirit that guards this hole into which the sins of humans inhabiting Malaybalay and surrounding areas are placed.

Conservation initiatives and the development of non-destructive livelihoods and local products are also being envisioned based on their Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan.

Bae Inatlawan understands that development and culture must go together. “With culture alone, the tribe will not survive; with development alone, the tribe will die,” she stressed.
