Main Article Content
This study focused on promoting indigenous food plants (IFPs) for food security through a School of Living Traditions (SLT) on the indigenous knowledge (IK) of the Aeta Magbukon. The study used the qualitative ethnographic research method as it employed focus group discussions, which were participated by 30 Aeta Magbukon people aged 11-18 years and 7 Cultural Masters aged 55-69 for the duration of the 3 SLTs and 1 radio program. The participants’ interest and the sincerity of the Cultural Masters were considerably noted to ensure the data’s credibility. The study documented 35 species of IFPs and 15 traditional cooking methods taught by the Cultural Masters of the Aeta Magbukon, ensuring the transmission of indigenous skills and techniques. SLTs are a decent strategy to preserve IK because they uphold the nation’s historical and cultural heritage. Moreover, SLTs help preserves and assimilate traditional culture and its various artistic expressions as a thriving component of national culture. Government institutions other than the National Commission for Culture and the Arts must also take responsibility in disseminating the value of IFPs in achieving food security and create policies and ordinances to protect forests where IFPs are sourced. Furthermore, the study highlighted the lack of existing investigation on the nutritional value and health benefits of IFPs.
