NCIP against “lumad” tag on indigenous people

Lumad not an indigenous term and associated with the CPP, NDF, and NPA (Communist Party of the Philippines – National Democratic Front – New People’s Army)

NO TO ‘LUMAD’. The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples wants to correct the misnomer that all ethnic groups can be called “lumad”. In Resolution 08-009-2021 issued on March 2, 2021, the commission said the elders, leaders, and members of different ICC/IP groups in Mindanao requested that they not be called “lumad”. Instead, they want to be referred to by their ethnolinguistic group names. (Photo courtesy of NCIP)
