Manobo Dreams in Arakan
This book provides a comprehensive historical account of the struggles of the Manobo in Arakan Valley to keep their ancestral lands, and in the process assert their cultural identity across centuries of colonial rule and integration into the national political system. It describes their many experiences of resistance and accommodation, of creative adaptation, to external pressures and opportunities, providing insights about how indigenous groups like the Manobo can become an integral part of the national and global community while maintaining their own social spaces and cultural contexts.
