|DRN 2009 Vol. XXVII No. 2||IP Children's Right to Cultural Citizenship|
|PIDS Research Information Staff|
The main feature in this issue points out the importance of recognizing the right of Filipino indigenous children to be culturally different from the mainstream population. The feature is based on a paper by Dr. Mary Racelis which was presented in a seminar co-sponsored by the United Nations Children's Fund and the PIDS. The author points to a set of relevant guidelines that provides the necessary approaches in programming for IP (indigenous peoples) children. Likewise, policy and program recommendations that are anchored on the need to preserve the rich heritage of IPs are presented with the hope that when these are effectively implemented, our IP children would be able to carry out their task of passing on the rich cultural heritage to future generations.
