Tribal Wars Still Exist


I was disheartened to learn that tribal wars still exist in my beautiful native province. A relative just visited and informed me that after 6 pm, everyone should be inside their houses because of existing tribal wars between villages or barrios.

After all these years, they still exist? What can be in the mind set of my co-Kalingans? Wasn't there enough bloodshed already? Could we not give peace a chance?

The beautiful picture is courtesy of Nats Dalanao. Thanks,Nats. Nats is the author of the wonderful blog :"Kalinga Tambayan,". Visit his blog and enjoy more of the culture of the Kalingas.

What can be the reasons for this continuing bloodshed? I can't find the answers, anyone who can help me?

a culture is a culture . it is the main roots of our forefathers. it was passed on to us by them so we should preserve it. You can't blame us, KALINGAS for having culture such as that tribal wars. It only occur when you've hurt one of us. yes we have that "vengeance" thing but it depends on the damage you've done. WE're not that barbaric if that's what you think.It only shows that we are so protective when it comes to our love ones. So don't ever dare to criticize us. Tingnan niyo muna mga sarili niyo. Masyadong makitid ang mga utak neo. bakit di niyo subukang puntahan ang lugar namin para malaman neo .
