Biñan Rep. Len Alonte lauds House approval of her cultural mapping bill

Sep 17, 2021 @ 9:57

Preserving culture is important, and the House of Representatives has taken an important step toward this.

In a Facebook post, Biñan Rep. Len Alonte lauded the House for approving the Mandatory Cultural Mapping Bill, which she co-authored, on third and final reading.

She said that even before the measure was approved, Biñan has been doing its own cultural mapping.

This is crucial because culture is the life and soul of a community and it will die if not preserved, she said. 

Our culture forms part of our history and identity, so we should guard and preserve it! 

“This afternoon, the House of Representatives approved on third and final reading House Bill No. 10057 ‘The Mandatory Cultural Mapping Bill’ that I proudly co-authored. Even before the passage of this bill, we in the City of Biñan, have been conducting our Cultural Mapping – formal turnover of our first book with NCCA in 2019 and currently working on our second book. Culture is the soul and life of a community – if it is not preserved, it dies. Preserving requires knowledge of things that need to be protected and preserved. This starts with the deep understanding of tangible and intangible heritage of the community that represents local history and identity – this is why Cultural Mapping is important.


‘’Our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our nation.’-NM,” Alonte posted.
