  1. I’m looking for collaborative input as we develop standards to mediate outside Impact on traditional Tagbanua ways, while, at the same time, encourage the re-emergence and broad appreciation of tribal heritage.

    We at PEMS hope to establish a program that will assist Barangay as they mediate dysfunctional practices such as Reef Cyaniding, Endangered Species Poaching and practices that undermine fisherfolk and upland traditions.

    We are also hoping to mediate the inevitable impact of Eco, Ethno and Adventure-Tourism on indigenous Tagbanua Cultures as development in the Calamean is occurring rather rapidly. In doing so we need a better understanding of local ways and practices and look for collaboration in the process.

    As we begin to develop standards of contact we need to ensure ongoing respect taking into consideration the interests of each Barangay, their history, traditional ways and territorial integrity.
