Filipino history, demystified

Jul 7, 2022. Speaking to CNN about an exhibit on the true history of the Ifugao rice terraces in the Philippines, Director of the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies Stephen Acabado observed, “Exhibits like this provide a venue to highlight the experiences of marginalized Indigenous peoples. In the Philippine case, we hope that it spurs proactive policies that empower IP groups to learn more about their history and heritage. Studies have shown that youths who are more secure about their ethnic identity are more likely to succeed later in life. It's the least that we can do to redress centuries of oppression.”
