This claim is false.The term"Lumad" was not created by the CPP-NPA-NDF.A reverse image search shows that the photo of the graduation ceremony is actually taken from a 2017 theater performance entitled, Ang Bangugot.In October 2019, the Department of Education (DepEd) ordered the closure of 55 schools operated and owned by the Salugpungan Ta’ Tanu Igkanogon Community Learning Centers in Davao region for its alleged failure to comply with the requirements of the government."Lumad" is a"Bisayan term" meaning “native” or “indigenous,” according to an article on the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) website.The word was adopted by 15 Mindanao ethnic groups after the Cotabato Congress in June 1986 to distinguish them from the Moro and Christians.The NCAA article was written by Faina Ulindang a professor at the Department of History at Mindanao State University and a lecturer at its graduate school.He further stated that these schools were funded by the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines (RMP), a church-based organization tagged by the government as a front of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).

Though the book mentions that Lumad communities have been caught in the conflict between the national government and the NPA, it does not say that the term"Lumad" was created by the NPA.

If not, then they just persecuted and acted against schools and communities without any basis. Perfect way to make the government look like the bad guy and encourage those affected to join the NPA.
