    For decades, the Philippine island of Mindanao has been plagued by violence, as ethnic groups fight for more autonomy from the government.

    Now a museum has opened that goes back to the island's roots - to explain its diversity and promote a message of peace.

    This museum aims to promote unity and harmony. It is the first in Mindanao that tells history from the perspective of the Lumads.
