INDIGENOUS PEOPLES

SALIGAN recognizes and supports the indigenous peoples’ struggle for their right to self-determination.
We work for the right to ancestral domain and the passage of the National Land Use Act to address conflicting legal provisions regarding ownership and use of land and other resources. SALIGAN also works for the recognition of tribal justice system and governance, and representation in local government units. We have published a material on IP’s local governance participation.

We also have paralegal trainings focused on IP Rights and legal literacy trainings on managing resource based conflicts in relation to our peace and environment programs. Check out our strategies to learn more about the Indigenous Peoples’ Paralegal Formation Program
