Cilture and Tradition

Peace to all:

Ang napansin ko lamng ay sa Subanen, ang community natin ay enfluence na ng ibang kultura. May mga cultural community offices ang govt at mahigpit ngani ang pagkuha ng certification of tribal membership kapag muslim ka although Subanen parin. Pero ang mga officers and staff nila ay hindi naman mga original Subanen practicing. Silay mga Christian na at ang subanen way of life ay pang stage nalang. sorry pero sa pag iikot ko sa Mindanao, tanging taga bundok talaga at iilan nalang ang masabi na original. Ung ibang Subanen ay sinasabi na di daw Subanen ang iba kay muslim na, pero ang ibang mga Timuay natin ay mga pastor na rin...Ang napansin ko rin, ang ibang Subanen kapag nakapag aral na ay iiwanan na ang kultura at aadopt na ng ibang kultura at Bisayan culture (mostly christian culture) Walang masama sana na mag hanap ng ibang faith dahil kaligtasan yon sa kabilang buhay basta huwag iwanan ang kultura at sa halip linangin ito ng mabuti upang katanggap tanggap sa madla. At napansin ko pa, ang mga tribal group sa Mindandano gaya ng Subanen, Maranao, Magindanao, etc. ay dati ay iisang animist. Ang Subanen noong nag adopt ng Christianity ay nawala na ang ibang kultura at hindi kagaya ng mga Maranaw at Magiundanao at iba pa na nag Islam, hindi nawala ang identity at kultura. Sa bahay nila ay nag mamalong parin at  Inalis lang ang ibang gawaing imoral at bawal sa Islam gaya ng baboy. Paumanhin ngunit ito ay obserbasyon ko lamang po. My salaam

I appreciate much of your effort to establish our identity my brother Subanen. My family lives in UP Campus, QC and planning after retirement, will stay in Zanorte, my birthplace. I don't know how to start my dream for us Subanen. I suppose to build a village wherein I will relocate fellow Subanen and start a new way of life as a Subanen. But it cost a lot of Money....Leaders that will be assigned to committees for the purpose (seminar/information drive, etc) Creating/rebuilding Subanen community that stands for itself, and not duplicating others...I would not say more, thanks a lot brother...

That is right, Ismail my brother. With some of my brothers and cousins who came from a race of Gbagelal specifically from Apo Melen, we planned to organize and register it in the SEC. Our main purpose is to reunite all our relatives and construct a community where there will be observance of laws and tradition of Subanen. We need to have a community being influencial to other communities and not being influenced especially from foreign intervention.
