There are faulty modules circulating on social media over the past days which are said to “malign, discriminate, and wrongly depict the Igorots.” Thus, Department of Education (DepEd)-Cordillera Regional Director Estela Cariño urges the public to report incorrect information.
DepEd Regional Director Cariño, who is an Igorot herself, said, “When a wrong concept keeps repeated, this might be accepted as the truth that is why we need to respond to it right away and for those responsible to correct it immediately.” Moreover, Cariño also calls on all education stakeholders to help in creating awareness of indigenous people.
According to the Philippine Information Agency of Cordillera (PIA Cordillera), the DepEd official added that “Cordillerans may contribute to the wrong concept and incorrect depiction of Igorots if they keep silent.”
