Tied to our learning visit at a permaculture development site in Gloria, Oriental Mindoro, we held a workshop on how to examine the social organization and inheritance laws of the Taobuid in Mounts Iglit-Baco Natural Park. Our resource person/facilitator was Dr. Elizabeth Luquin, a French social anthropologist from INaLCO (National Institute for Oriental Languages and Cultures), CASE (Southeast Asia Center), and IRASEC (Research Institute for Contemporary Southeast Asia). Dr. Luquin is fluent in Filipino and Minangyan; she stayed for four years in a Hanunuo community in Bulalacao, Oriental Mindoro, for her PhD more than thirty years ago.
The workshop benefited from the insights of the Taobuid members of the DAF local team and MIBNP-PAMO guided by the methodological approach of Dr. Luquin.
