The following are videos about the story of the Tasadays of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. The Tasaday story revisited 30 years later was produced by GMA News and Public Affairs and was aired on GMA-7's I-Witness, a documentary program last June 22, 2009. I-Witness host's Kara David visited a very remote rainforest in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato in-search for the Tasadays, a band of cave-dwelling people allegedly living a very paleolithic lifestyle during the time of their discovery.
The Tasadays were discovered in the year 1971 by Manuel “Manda” Elizalde,Jr., a Spanish-American Filipino who headed an organization that assisted Philippine tribal people in their struggle to survive the onrush of modern civilization. However, in the year 1986 a Swiss journalist came out claiming that the Tasaday tribe of Lake Sebu were a hoax. Watch the documentary and you decide.
