PREFACE 
For
..
ong,
tI
..
minority
peoples
of"'"
Philippines
h.V<!
suffered
the
agony
of
being treated
as
such.Howthese
indigenous
peoples who once
had
superficial
control
over
territories
which, put together,
wouh:t
easily
constitute
nearly
one
half
of
the entire national
territory of
lhe
Republic
of
the
Philippines,
were
transformed
,into
minorities
in
their
own
lands
has
remained
a
puzzle.For so
long,
too,
we have
wanted
to
put together
a
modest volume
that
would
show exactly
this
historical
process,
one
that
would serve
as an easy
reference
for
all
sortsof
people:
for
those who
have been
minoritized;
for
those who
have
been
directly
responsible
in
bringingabout
and
carrying
on
the process;
for
those
Who
have
been
unwittingcontributors
to
the
process,
and
for
those
of
the present
generation who wish
to
correct
the
errors of
the
past.
The
opportunity
presented
itself
when
Prof.
Ed
Garcia came
to
see
us
oneday
in 1991
to
discuss.the
plan
of
Minority
Rights
Group(MRG)
iFT
London
fO
getsome
Filipino
writers
to
contribute
tothe
volume
on
thePhilippines
minoritysituation
coinciding with
the United
Nation's
Year
of theIndigenous
Peoples.
We
agreed
to
do
the Mindanao-Sulu
Archipelago
portion.
The
product
exceeded
the
32-page
limit
of
a
regular
MRG
publication.
Some
6,000
words
had
to
be
painfully
excised. Upon
our
requestlater,
MRG
graciously
consented
to
have
theoriginalversion
published
locally,
this
one,
qualified
only with
the
following
riote:
An
abridged version
of
this
report
is
available
as

So
much
hashappened
since
the computer
script of
this
work wascompleted
on 29
January 1993.
We
have
kept the
text
intact
but
wehave
added
a
brief
epilogue to update the reader
on
the
latest developments
.

must
go

To Rene

in Asiaand
the
Middle
East.To
Ms.
Patricia
Sellick
herself
whose
incisive questions
and
constructive
comments,
as
we
went
through
the
manuscript section

made
it
easier
for

to
see
what

were
necessary
for
an
international
audience.

forever
