Village Institution and Leadership Practices of the Mamanwa in Tandag, Surigao del Sur
Retsy T. Malong

The Mamanwa is one of the original settlers of Tandag, Surigao del Sur. They live in a community with very lively oral or literary traditions, worldviews, and indigenous leadership practices. The paper delves in the narratives of the Mamanwa village institutions or traditional leaders and leadership rituals. The said Mamanwa institutions reflect values such as respect for the elders and the environment and village cooperation which need to be preserved as part of Filipino national heritage. The research undertaking is also relevant since despite the massive cultural transition of other IP (lumadnon) communities in Mindanao, the Mamanwa manages to preserve these institutions.
