Weekly Photo Challenge: Home


This week’s Photo Challenge is about places where people live or a more abstract representation of a place we call home.  I chose a photo I took in Maguindanao, Philippines.  This family is a member of the Teduray tribe, one of the major Indigenous People of Mindanao.  They are known as peace-loving people with a unique culture and a strong family ties.  However, since 1970, about 10,000 Teduray families fled their homes due to armed conflicts as well as displacements from massive logging, floodings and mining activities.   Until now, Tedurays do not have permanent places to live in.  Despite of their abysmal living condition, this Teduray family shines through this image of smiling faces, filling their home with laughter amidst their suffering and difficulties in life.
