AKO I.P. Party List

A New Day!

Ang Koalisyon ng Indigenous People (Ako I. P. Party List) is a group of indigenous People with big dreams initially started in the Cordillera Region of Abra, Kalinga, Apayao, Benguet, Mt. Province, Ifugao and Baguio City.

Knowing that free quality college education is key to our country’s economic progress, we at Ako I.P. Party List dream of putting up the Universidad ng Katutubong Pilipino where IPs can have a College Degree in Sciences, Engineering, Arts, Education, Commerce, Medicine, Law and other fields of studies.

Finally, IPs will be liberated from their bondage to ignorance and poverty.

A new day is soon coming for the Indigenous People numbering about 12 Million scattered in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Lets join Ako I.P. and help our brothers become engines of growth in our society.

Lahat tayo ay may dugong katutubo!

Maraming Salamat.

Quality Education is the key to a better life for the Indigenous People. Thus, we aim to establish the Universidad ng Katutubong Pilipino…

Basic Computer Knowledge Centers shall be put up in each of the barangays of the 6 component province plus Baguio compromising the Cordillera Region.

Environmental Protection shall be pursued by monitoring that mining companies in Cordillera adhere to DENR’s rules and regulations steadfastly.

Responsible tourism means luring our own countrymen and foreigners to visit amazing places in Cordillera such as Mt. Pulag, Sagada in Mt. Province…

Alternative livelihood projects such as, among others: increasing production of native, garments and products for export to world, increasing coffee plantations…

Rights to Ancestral Domains, Rights to Self-Governance and Empowerment, Rights to Social Justice and Human Rights and Rights to Cultural Integrity.
