“Our history and identity shall not be lost”-former Mayor Dickpus on Lubuagan’s Book


Lubuagan, Kalinga – “With this book, I can say many important parts in Lubuagan’s history and identity shall not be lost,” said former municipal Mayor Charisma Anne Dickpus in her message contained in the Lubuagan Local Cultural Profile - Book 1.


Dickpus spearheaded the realization of said book in mapping the municipality’s culture. She fully supported the local Cultural Mapping Project implemented by the LGU’s Municipal Tourism Section, in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).


Dickpus worked hard to encourage the public, especially the elders and other key informants, to take part in the project to keep the Lubuagan identity alive.


“For a long time, the people of Lubuagan have longed for a book where its culture, tradition, customs, and significant periods in its history, including its people, are inked as reference for future generations. Now, we have it. Under my administration, I made sure such a gift should be made as we owe it to our people to keep our identity alive,” underscored the former mayor.

Lubuagan, she further stressed, ‘shall no longer just be known as a once upon a time Kalinga’s center and where President Emilio Aguinaldo ran the revolutionary government but also a municipality with its tribes and traditions.’


“Long after we are gone, the book shall talk to our children in the future and provide a window for the world to see. May this book be preserved and may other similar endeavors follow to capture more of the events and unwritten stories of our forefathers and the present generation. Kabunyan bless us all!” Dickpus concluded.
