National Commission for Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) Chair Leonor Quintayo affirms the commitment of the NCIP to protect not only the welfare of IPs but also the mountains of Sierra Madre which is their home. “Sierra Madre has many ancestral domains which the government, in partnership with the IP communities, should be responsible for,” Quintayo said.  The IP Summit was held at the Biodiversity Management Bureau Training Center in Quezon on the occasion of the Save Sierra Madre Day on September 26. ###
