Meet the Manobo-Tagabawa children of Sitio Tudaya in the village of Kapatagan in Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur.
Theirs are smiles and faces oblivious of the bleak future awaiting their faith, culture and tradition--their lives--with the looming establishment of a hydroelectic plant in their village.
The problem with the hydroelectric plant of the local electric giant Hedcor, is that it will be put up right at the very place considered sacred by the villagers, the Tudaya waterfalls.
The waterfalls is what defines the faith, culture and tradition--the lives--of the Tagabawas.
Another unfortunate misplaced development.
