Domogan urges IPs to sustain unity amidst diverse cultures
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan urged the indigenous peoples in the Cordillera to sustain the unity that was passed on to them by their ancestors.

Domogan told the IPs who attended the thanksgiving of Commissioner Gaspar Cayat of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples to strengthen the bond of unity for them to move on to greater heights, especially in the realization of their individual and collective aspirations.

“We must continue passing on the bond of unity that has been passed on to us by our ancestors because it is through our ability to unite amidst our diverse culture and traditions that have made us unique,” Domogan said.

He said that the IPs should also continue bringing out the best in themselves to help sustain the unique identity of Baguio City as one of the preferred tourist destination in the country.

He said the IPs are resilient and are no longer ashamed to wear their native attire, unlike before when only few perform in public in their native attire.

Domogan said that IPs have proven their worth in their chosen fields of expertise worldwide and many continue to bring honor and pride to their ethno-linguistic groups over the years.

Almost 92 percent of Cordillera’s population is composed of IPs.

Domogan said that even in the conduct of parades, pupils are proud to wear their native attire and perform tribal dances.

He said that the IPs have also been empowered by their fellow IPs who succeeded in sports, governance, arts and culture, and business, among other sectors.

Domogan traces his roots to Patiacan, Quirino, Ilocos Sur, which is situated within its border with Besao, Mountain Province.

Like most of the IPs, he acquired education through hard work, perseverance, patience, and the desire to help in moving his family out of poverty.

Cayat initiated the IP thanksgiving to gather all the IPs in the city and different parts of the region to express their gratitude for the success of their fellow IPs, especially in their chosen fields of expertise.
