BatanesOnline.com was launched aimed to provide an online source of news
and feature articles about Batanes and the Ivatan Community worldwide.
A place where you can keep track of the issues and events affecting the
Ivatan Community. It is also a place where Ivatans can exchange views
and comments and keep in touch with each other.
This project will support all initiatives that promote and preserve the
Ivatan values and cultural heritage. It also aims to cultivate the Ivatan
camaraderie and foster awareness that we can collectively contribute to
the needs of the Ivatan community.
This project is not connected to any political, religious or similar interest
Sources of news contents:
News comes from various individuals, government agencies in Batanes as
well as non-government organizations.
We also welcome contributions from the Ivatan Community especially when
there are newsworthy activities or announcements which other Ivatans might
be interested to know.
Ivatans (and Ivatans at heart) dedicated to keep the Ivatan spirit of
camaraderie alive are the people behind this project. Naming one would
be unfair to the others who have helped in one way or another. Supporters
of this project have offered their free services to design the site, coordinate
news feed, convert materials into electronic format and other mundane
but necessary details to successfully launch this project.
As an Ivatan (or an Ivatan at heart) you are already part of this project.
How to support this project:
Be an active part of it, send us your news
so we can share them to the Ivatan Community. Supporting the Online
Shop will provide us with the necessary resources to help us maintain
and host the website. Thank you.
