Stories : Hear. Listen. Understand. Share Your Stories and Win a Trip for Two to Zoocobia and Zoobic Safari!


Wazzup Pilipinas!

What started out as the thesis of a group of BS Business Management students under the social entrepreneurship track,  TriboCo. Kultura Kamp continued their operations even after they graduated last March this year. These youth are now committed to operate as an independent social enterprise.

Through cultural camps they encourage three things among their participants and partners: to embark, embrace and to empower.

Embark - to immerse among the indigenous groups and experience their way of life.

Embrace - to foster a sense of kinship with our indigenous brothers and sisters to understand, accept, and develop deep respect for their culture and way of life.

Empower - to empower both the indigenous people and the participants.

All this is ultimately geared towards the fight against ethnocentrism - the tendency to believe that one's ethnic or cultural group is centrally important, and that all other groups are measured in relation to one's own.

Contest announcement below :

But before I share the highlights and my insights about the event that was held at Sweet Spot Bakery and Cafe located at Maginhawa street in Quezon City last August 9, I would like to hear what others have to share about any thoughts or experience that may be related to the importance of efforts such as these. They can share their learning, discoveries, likes, and anything related to the event and that of the advocacy of TriboCo. Kultura Kamp.

For their efforts, we are sponsoring a prize in the form of a trip for two to Zoocobia and Zoobic Safari (two popular theme parks of the Zoomanity Group located in Clark, Pampanga) with lots of animals, rides and other great attractions that everyone will surely enjoy).

We will also sponsor their transportation and meals for the day. (More great news!)

  1. I liked it best when there are several ways to tell stories either by music or a poetic declamation. Keep on doing the social responsibility advocacy and I'm positive that there will be a lot more who would follow our footsteps

  2. The performers really know their craft. I can still hear their voices ringing in my ear. How I wish we could all be like that - willing and able to lend our talents to share some good vibes.

  3. The most powerful medium an advocacy can use is to unite a group of people who wholeheartedly believe that there is good in what they do, that somehow, change can and will happen.

    That night, I saw a group of people just like that. Through their songs, their stories and their presence, I knew that they believed they could make it happen.

    I knew that soon, this advocacy will matter, that TriboCo will matter.

Thank you so much! :)

  7. The article of yours is informational. The data given can also convince anyone to go to that place you said, based on my own opinion. But when I scan the "competition" section, my curiosity became enough to cause interest. First of all, I want more information about that "contest" you have in there.

    Thank you ! :DD

  8. The Advocacy of TriboCo. Kultura Kamp is one of the greatest examples on how we can elevate our patriotism towards our country. Because their journey is not just an adventure but also a way of life. It helps not just the people behind the said advocacy but also the involve ethnic groups, the participants that will join the advocacy and our country. And this competition will help a lot in promoting the project. I hope this will encourage many people in exploring and respecting the different ethnic groups in our country. :)

  9. Being able to share an individual's personal stories and experiences is a very great idea. Sometimes one's small act toward others when shared can unknowingly a big thing for others. I strongly support this advocacy for their works so keep it up and I believe that someday someone will look back to this advocacy and thank it for its works

  10. I commend you guys for your passion against ethnocentrism. We are all equal and no socio-cultural group is better than others. Cultural immersion will help anyone to fully understand the minority groups better thus, preventing discrimination.

    I agree to support the fight against ethnocentrism because I believe that we are all equal despite of our flaws and we should not use our achievements in discriminating groups of people. I also believe that we should respect the opinions and experiences of not only every ethnic groups but also as an individual to maintain our peaceful relationship with them.

  12. I do believe that our indigenous brothers should be treated with great importance, for they were the ones who started it all. Their civilization provided ours with a framework that we have developed and modernized to what we have now. Without them, we would have no systems in many aspects like government, culture, etc. I am very delighted to hear that people are promoting our ethnic groups. And with this competition, we can learn to embrace our heritage, embark with them and understand their culture, and empower them to our society as fellow citizens of the Philippines.

  13. I'm not much of a storyteller and that's why I use music to express myself, to tell stories I can't tell people directly. But to be able to share stories and experiences through music and poetry sounds like an AWESOME experience. I salute the person or the group of people that organized this program, and I hope I would be able to attend programs similar to this one. Go TriboCo. Kultura Kamp!

  14. Honestly, I would like get the chance to share my story because I want to determine if all people practise ethnocentrism. If I were able to prove that people still have the chance to change their wrong perspectives in life, it would be my honor to continue what I started. But I also believe that people that has strong determination of practising ethnocentrism, they deserve respect and acceptance.

  16. The advocacy of TriboCo. Kultura Kamp is unique in a way that it fights racial discrimination with a different attack or strategy. Making people share their stories of in different way, for me, an effective way. Though it's indirect, but it will surely make people realize things and make them way more open to things that aren't traditional and be curious enough to make them explore and enjoy stuffs outside the box.

  17. The idea of TriboCo.Kultura Kamp in pursuing these article is knowledgeable because sharing your experience to other people makes you feel goof and you will know something that you don't even know before and makes your mind be knowledgeable and informative.For me, sharing experience,learnings,discoveries,likes or anything is like sharing your own life to someone you trusted or to other people ready to listen to your story.I want to share my own story because it is interesting and miraculous.

  18. For people who enjoy talking, this is a great way share. In our time, we city folks usually set these things aside. We read about our ethnic groups from our dusty workbooks and the amazing internet, but we've never really experienced it.
    Exchanging stories,Living among them for a bit and understanding their ways are things we don't experience everyday. And though we may not be able to change everyone's view of these things, it's worth a try. Who knows? We might even know ourselves more.

  19. Triboco.Kultura Camp aims to fight the idea of ethnocentrism which are truly visible in our present society. We tend to disfavor and treat the indigenous people as inferior without taking a closer look on their importance and bearing in the country's present state.
    We should not set them aside and help them to adapt to the dynamic advancement. Triboco.Kultura Camp made it's way to express their gratitude towards the indigenous people in a positive approach.
    Moreover, I do believe that indigenous groups are important. Let us hear the 3 E's: embrace, embark and empower ourselves together with the indigenous groups all throughout.

  22. Triboco.Kultura Camp creates a way to know our "old" culture better. They followed Rizal's thinking that "A good day can be foretold by the morning" which means that the youth is the hope of the nation. These youth who created the organization helps the nation preserve it's culture which is now dying. They also help empower our indigenous people.

  23. I find it ironic cause the advocacy of the students who started this project is not inclined to their specialization.However, i admire their efforts to pursue this project that will help our ethic groups in the philippines be known.

  24. It's good to hear that there are still people who care for our indigenous brothers and sisters. I admire this group of graduates for their desire to uphold the culture of our ethnic groups. Students like me should be encouraged to join organizations like this to support and spread their advocacy.

  25. I do believe that sharing is caring. And it's so nice to hear that there were some people who still pursue this kind of project despite of the modern generation. Their desire to fight for ethnocentrism shows that indigenous people should be honored and respected. And I admire them for having this advocacy.
