From the research conducted by the team, it is no doubt that the tigsik literature has weakened.  With the intention to sustain the goal of tigsik enthusiast in the Region, the team decided to come up with an action plan that will be of help to not only enrich the tigsik but also uphold it.

Included in the action plan is the intention of the team to collaborate  with the Bikolano writers and other concerned agencies to come up with more online forum on tigsik which will be opened to all tigsik enthusiasts and Bikolanos all over the world.

For the time being, the team offers the following recommendations:

      1.   That we call upon the DepEd Bikol with firm intent to require elementary and high schools, at least for public schools, implement localization of instructions. Localization will have teachers make use of local history, culture and language in their instructions. Not necessarily to change the curriculum, but to integrate local materials in the instructions is what localization intends to target.


If this is made possible, Bikol culture will possibly flourish. Eventually, tigsik can be a popular material to support instructions. Such use of tigsik will lead to reviving it and restoring Bikol culture in the long run.


     2.   That we initiate the organization of on-line writers of tigsik and encourage internet users to join. Establishing it in the cyber space is an incredible step toward promotion of tigsik. With collaboration from the teachers implementing localization, tigsik must have been a common but popular source of research and interactive writing activities. [What a golden time for tigsik!]


     3.   That we fervently make linkage to LGUs specially Naga City for technical assistance for facilitating seminars and trainings, to National Commission for Culture and Arts for grant assistance for writing exposures, and to DTI specially for Chamber of Commerce for proliferation of products promoting tigsik lilke statement T-shirts.


Such linkage when fully established can equally establish the place of tigsik and eventually the Bikol culture in the Philippine culture and in every one’s culture.


     4.    But at the minimum, we ask the administration and faculty of NCSHS to implement localization in school with emphasis on tigsik. Nothing may be better than people starting a mission in their own backyard.
