dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores a zone of peace, the village of Maladeg, in Lanao del Sur, Philippines. Outside the borders of Maladeg, Muslim rebels continue to fight for a Moro republic, in spite of armed opposition from the government bent on retaining sovereignty over the southern islands. Violence and government corruption has made the region virtually inaccessible and underdeveloped even though it is considered among the richest in natural resources. Furthermore, conflict tradition among Muslims themselves called rido, or clan wars have also plagued the region, thus perpetuating the cause for rebellion and secession. The project includes interviews that offer insight into the reasons the residents of Maladeg chose to declare their village a zone of peace and why their efforts have been relatively successful, despite the political and cultural history of violence in the land. The photography is a visual illustration of the people's way of life during both times of peace and violence.en_US
