National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) says that the history of Boracay Ati Community now inspires the Indigenous peoples in the Philippines.
However, office of the NCIP Chairperson Atty. Leonor Quintayo said during the Community Thanksgiving Celebration on Saturday, “the government cannot achieve its development for Aetas in Boracay, if we just talk about providing the Certificate of Ancestral Domain (CADT) Title.”
But she added that, “Indigenous Peoples in Boracay can really have a good life since that there has been a unity between the government, church and society.”
Meanwhile, Quintayo encourage the Boracay Ati to continue what they have done for the future of their communities.
It will be recalled that Philippine government conferred CADT to the Borcay Ati Community dated January 21, 2011.
