    Lumads gather in Davao City for historic “Sacred Gathering”

    A thousand participants composed of Lumads and Lumad support groups are coming to Davao City for Dumalongdong Mindanaw, a Mindanao-wide Lumad conference, the first of its kind, which will be held on April 21-25, 2015.

    Datus, indigenous women and youth leaders, and other Lumad leaders coming from the different regions of Mindanao will gather to unite various indigenous peoples’ communities in Mindanao “to defend their ancestral lands from imperialist plunder and militarization in their communities,” according to Blaan leader Monico Cayog, chairperson of indigenous peoples’ group Kalumaran.

    “Dumalongdong Mindanaw is a traditional and political gathering that advances genuine inter-tribal, inter-generational, and inter-gender unity and solidarity against the Lumad people’s common enemies: imperialist land grabbing, state violence, and national oppression,” Cayog added.

    “The gathering also calls for the disbandment of Lumad paramilitary groups, stop of attacks of Lumad schools, extra-judicial killings and trumped-up charges,” Dulphing Ogan, secretary-general of Kalumaran, also said.

    Aside from the main event which is the Datu-Bai conference, the gathering’s activities also include the commemoration of the Earth Day 2015, fluvial protest at the Davao River, education festival, and Tunog Bubongan concert. The conference will also serve as the 3^rd Kalumaran Assembly.

    Support groups such as youth and students, workers, the urban poor, as well as church people, the academe, and other professionals will also be joining in the said event.

    The event is themed as “Unite, act, fight to defeat Oplan Bayanihan’s divide-and-rule against Lumads! Resist Imperialist plunder of Ancestral Domains!”.
