MALUNGON, Sarangani (March 2, 2017) - Datu Edmund Pangilan (2nd from left), Indigenous Peoples Mandatory Representative (IPMR) and municipal tribal chieftain, leads a native-fashioned ritual during the installation of new municipal vice chieftains Datu Benedicto Angonia (Tagakaulo) and Datu Dario Lasib of the Blaan tribe that was graced by Mayor Tessa Constantino on February 10 at the ABC Hall in Malungon. Pangilan said the spear reminds newly-hailed leaders to place God above all, while the local government chief executive, who is also an IP, urged the tribes to always adhere not only to the rules that are defined under the tribal traits and culture, but also of those that are being stipulated by the courts of law.
