Maaaring magsilbing temporary shelters para sa mga katutubo ng Bukidnon ang dalawang bagong multi-purpose buildings na itinayo ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) sa Impasug-ong at Kitaotao.

“Most of the indigenous people live in the highlands of Bukidnon so whenever they visit the town proper, the buildings are available to provide temporary place which are comfortable to stay,” sinabi ni DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar.

May open hall para sa pagtitipun-tipon, kubeta, lodging areas na may mga kwarto, at balkonahe ang mga istruktura. Kumpleto rin ang mga ito ng plumbing at electrical works.

Maaari ring gamitin ang mga nasabing gusali para sa learning, meetings, at iba’t ibang aktibidad.

“These structures serve as a concrete expression of the Department’s support to preserve the culture and heritage of the indigenous people in Bukidnon,” dagdag pa ng Kalihim.
