 Philippine News by MySearch Philippines: Tabuk bodong council eyes removal of ‘gopas’ from peace pacts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
TABUK, Kalinga – The Municipal Bodong Council (MBC), which is composed of the eight original tribes inhabiting this town, may have found the solution to the problem of tribal wars in this province with its rejection of the "gopas" provision in the "bodong" or peace pact.
Tabuk Community Affairs Officer Alexander Gunaban said that the MBC has adopted a standard "pagta" without the "gopas" provision but only three bodong pairings in the MBC have so far incorporated it into their "pagtas" with the rest expected to follow suit shortly.
The idea of removing the "gopas" came from immigrants who, during an information drive for the bodong conducted by the Kalinga Bodong Council and the Tabuk LGU in 2002 among immigrant residents of Tabuk, had expressed their puzzlement as to why bodong-practitioners cut their bodongs instead of using them to settle their differences.
