“Well, I think indigenous peoples have ways of living on the Earth that they've had forever. And they've been overrun by organized religion, which has had a lot of money and power.” - Alice Walker

As a child I always believed that people in Earth are all with fair- complexion. Part of the reason why I thought that way is because I came from a family who are blessed with fair complexion, but another reason is that, I seldom saw people who are like the Aeta. I can still remember the fascination I experienced for the first time I saw someone who looked entirely different from those people whom I used to see. Now that I already reached this age, I want to scold the ‘little- me’ years ago for acting odd that moment. Unconsciously, I was guilty of the discriminating behavior of the public towards our indigenous people.

This paper you are about to read tackles one of the many issues that people like the Aeta or other IPs of the nation fights for. This paper will try to impart some of the readings and studies on the situation of the indigenous sector in their education. Of how the government, specially, the Department of Education, make a move to address the needs of our fellow people.

Open your minds as you continue reading this paper, and after reading it, try to discern what other concerns must be considered in order to achieved highest completion of the programs of different sector in addressing the needs of the IPs.
