IN 2002, the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism trekked to the mountains of Nueva Vizcaya and dove into the seas off Palawan in order to tell the oft-unheard stories of indigenous peoples.

The result was Katutubo: Memories of Dances, a multi-format effort of the PCIJ that included a full length documentary and a coffee table book. Katutubo not only chronicled the hardships and despair of IP communities, but also celebrated their bravery and victories in the face of what many of us call development.

This short video was produced and edited by PCIJ multimedia producer Julius D. Mariveles.
