  1. Rebels, tribal leaders to ‘marry’ ideals<br />www.ucanews.com<br />
  2. Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) peace negotiators and tribal group leaders yesterday agreed to “marry” their <br />
  3. common goal for self-determination during talks in Cagayan de Oro City.<br />
  4. “We have agreed to marry. We intend to marry,” said MohagherIqbal, the head of the rebel negotiating team.<br />
  5. The next step is for us to consult with our respective groups, then afterwards, return and plan the details of this marriage,” he added.<br />
  6. Central to yesterday’s talks were centuries-old ancestral agreements between Moro and the indigenous people of <br />
  7. Mindanao, and the traditional territorial boundaries and traditional peace pacts between them.<br />
  8. These issues are also central to the indigenous peoples’ cultural identity, said DatuVictorinoSaway of the.<br />
  9. Talaandig tribe of Lantapan in Bukidnon<br />
  10. Saway said that while indigenous tribes are not active in peace negotiations, <br />
  11. they are affected by the discussions because of the issue surrounding their identities.<br />
  12. “We are not included in the discussion but we are involved already. We are affected by the<br />
  13. whole Bangsamoro territory discussion. Therefore, we should resolve this,” he said.<br />
  14. Yesterday’s talks were part of the rebel negotiating team’s program of holding dialogue with various sectors of society<br />
  15. in Mindanao in response to their calls to be included in the government-rebel peace negotiations.<br />
  16. “We are conducting these dialogues to gather the views, ideas, and questions of others with regard<br />
  17. to the MILF’s position and proposals in the negotiations,” Iqbal said.<br />
  18. While it is true there are agreements about their common aspirations, there is still so<br />
  19. much to do, and part of this is convincing other tribes in Mindanao to ally their struggle with the<br />
  20. Bangsamoro people’s struggle, he said.<br />
