The Canadian government has approved the release of the funds to extend the implementation of the “1001 Nights Civic and Peace Education Program” to the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
Republic Act No. 10908 mandates the integration of Filipino-Muslim and Indigenous Peoples history, culture and identity in the study of Philippine History in both Basic and Higher Education. The law recognizes the ultimate objective of creating an inclusive history that accounts for all Filipinos. There is however a dearth of resources on Bangsamoro and Lumad history, art, literature, and language. The Mindanao-Sulu History and Peace Education Project seeks to respond to this need.
