 Tasaday - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
tribe) of the deep and mountainous rainforests of the southern Philippine island of Mindanao who, up until the mid-20th century, were living as close to Stone Age lifeways as any people known in modern times.
Tasaday oral history speaks of "fugu", a horribly evil force that devastated the community, killing everyone except the Tasaday's ancestors who fled southward, deep into the forbidding mountain forest (even currently, most Mindanao tribespeople avoid the deep forest due to beliefs such as "tau maloy" or ghost people who are said to inhabit there).
Following a cultural rule generally observed throughout Mindanao, the community of people who stays in place and receives immigrants from outside holds their name and property, thus the Tasaday remain today a separate entity from the Blits.

 U.OF THE PHILIPPINES MINDANAO AND HRD OF MINDANAO REGION

Mindanao’s present economy is characterized by dominance of agriculture, limited agri-industrial coupling, industries that are natural-resource driven, a population that has low purchasing power, industries that are foreign-dominated and export-oriented, and dominance of a few landed families in each of the 23 provinces.
In all these efforts, UP Mindanao expects to work in consultation and collaboration with other colleges and universities in the region in recognition of their longer presence and valuable contribution to the development of human resources through professional and technical education for Mindanao.

 Leadership for Peace and Prosperity in Mindanao: A New Learning and Training Initiative Enables Filipinos to Work ...
The work of Synergos in developing regions such as Mindanao has revealed that the most serious problems faced by many communities are the result of deep societal divides -- religious, cultural, economic and political.
The persistent civil unrest that has disrupted life in Mindanao for more than three decades stems in large part from the wide-scale government-led migration of settlers -- mostly Christian -- from the more densely populated islands of the country to the fertile agricultural lands of Mindanao.
As an example, Garilao noted that in October 2003 AIM held its first training course on bridging leadership in Davao, Mindanao, which brought together militar y field commanders, Catholic and Muslim religious leaders, former guerrillas, local government officials, and Muslim community leaders to identify the issues that serve as barriers to change in their communities.

Life in the deep sea must adapt to unique conditions of low or no light, high pressure, low energy (except at hot vents and cold hydrocarbon seeps), and near-freezing or--at hot vents--superheated temperatures.
One unexplained but fairly common feature of deep animals is gigantism (such as oarfish, the giant squid, etc.).
Perhaps bacteria are involved, for the deep mud has many bacteria including iron-oxidizing ones that normally use natural iron for energy.

Yet the week certainly has its own life-blood now, and its efforts to secure peace in Mindanao must seem, on the whole, in opposition to the general attitude of the Estrada and now the Arroyo administrations.
Indeed, the week of peace is all about solidarity amongst the various peoples of Mindanao, and an opportunity for all of us to urge for a type of peace that is not formulated in either political expediency or grudging, tenuous, concessions.
