Tboli dancers

MAITUM, Sarangani (October 18, 2010) - Tboli youth show off their colorful costumes and grace in their dance number during the Indigenous Peoples Day celebration, October 17, at sitio Antam, barangay Upo. The theme of the celebration was “HEALING FOR SOLIDARITY: Asking forgiveness for sins against indigenous peoples”. They are appealing to "intruders" of their land to respect them and not destroy their ancestral lands. They also appealed to the government to help them fight for their rights.
