Pantaron Mountain Range, also called the Central Cordillera of Mindanao, Philippines is a mountain range straddling across the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Davao del Norte and Davao del Sur. The area is inhabited by the Ethnic tribal communities such as the Manobos, Higaonons and Bukidnons. For the Lumad people, the Pantaron Mountain Range is their source of food, water, and other resources for living. But under the Duterte's administration, it is set to sell to foreign capitalists who’s behind huge projects like dam, mining operations, and plantations. 

The Lumad women had petitioned of not giving their land that for years were fought and defended by their forefathers. Pantaron Mountain Range and other anscestral lands need to be defended from the threats of mining and other development projects. 

Also, The Martial Law resulted to the killings Lumad activists and other advocates and the militarization of communities in the hinterlands. Thus, making it difficult for the Lumads to fight for their human rights. 

Let us all support this petition to protect the land of the indigenous people from destruction. Their right to ancestral domain need to be recognized.
