Tis paper is a exploratory qualitative feld research of a community
phenomenon called pintakasi, an indigenous community activity in
Kalamansig, Sultan Kudarat, in the southern part of the Philippines. In
pintakasi, the people in a community help each other: no money is involved,

personal interests are set aside, for the beneft of the entire community.
Pintakasi was originally used on farm activities: farmers would take turns

spending a day at each other’s farms carrying out the tasks necessary for
planting or harvesting.

As the parish priest I went all over the community talking to people
about pintakasi and observing how they practiced it. I summarized my
fndings to present to the people but I added two components, planning and
evaluation. Traditional activities, on which pintakasi has been used for a long
time, do not need the components of planning and evaluation. But it was
my aim to help the community use pintakasi on non-traditional community
activities.

During the course of the study, parts of Kalamansig were attacked
several times by elements of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
Using pintakasi as modifed, the community reactivated an organization
of Muslims , Christians, and ethnic peoples from Mindanao (called the
Tri-people organization). Trough this organization the community used
pintakasi to

• keep their members (who had relatives and friends on both sides of the

confict) from actively taking sides and participating in the confict.

• help the members of the community voice their concerns for peace by

holding community consultations.

• plan their reaction (including evacuation plans) to the impending man-

made disaster

• plan and conduct ecumenical prayer meetings

• organize activities for the evacuees at the evacuation center

Te community through the use of pintakasi, an indigenous process,

was able to work together to respond to the peace and order problem.

Tey also provided psychosocial support for children afected by the armed

confict.

In my more than 15 years in community work, this research has made

me realize that the communities in the Philippines have diferent ways of

carrying their burdens. Pintakasi in Kalamansig is one way of pagdadala

(community burden bearing). Decenteceo (2009) stressed that community

also defnes the diferent aspects of the Pagdadala Model. In the Philippines,

aside from pintakasi, there are diferent ways of community burden bearing.

Psychologists and other social scientists have to discover those community

processes.
