Entrepreneurial development of Agta-Tabangnon in Pinit, Ocampo, Camarines Sur
Ramon V. Del Rosario College of Business
This dissertation was conceptualized out of a genuine concern for the plight of the Agta-Tabangnon, a tribe of indigenous people who are now occupying a settlement area designated by the government in Barangay Piniit, municipality of Ocampo in Camarines Sur. They represent the largest group of Agtas who were driven away from their ancestral domain to settle in Ocampo and other parts of Camarines Sur. Uprooted from their traditional subsistence economy, the Agtas-Tabangnon were forced to adopt to lowland cultural life. In time, they became mostly farm laborers competing with the non-indigenous rural poor for farm work, the least remunerative employment in the area. The consequences of this were especially disastrous for the Agtas-Tabangnon who had to be exposed to more severe forms of deprivation. The discrimination and marginalization to which they were subjected persist up to this time, despite real efforts on the part of the government to help them.
