This book takes a revealing look at the experiences of a tribe with a rich cultural tradition in the Davao Regions - the Tagakaulo. Caught between the desire to preserve their identity and the lure of migrating to the big city, six tribe members honestly share the problems encountered in their new environment and how these challenges have changed their perspectives on land ownership, livelihood, education and cultural preservation and loss. Although showing desire to revive and retain rituals, customs and traditions especially on gender roles, the Tagakaulo lack resources and know how to do such. Here is where other members of society like government, concerned organizations and fellow Filipinos can help. The story of the Tagakaulos becomes the story of every Filipino facing the challenges of urbanization and modernization. This book is highly recommended reading for all concerned with the history and heritage of people facing the loss of their cultures. Dr. Mary Ann E. Tarusan University of Mindanao
