He championed the indigenous rights for ancestral lands against encroachments of large scale mining companies and other environmentally-destructive projects.

On September 5, 2011 at around 1:30pm, Rabenio Sungit was shot dead by unidentified motorcycle riding man wearing bonnet using a .45 caliber pistol in the public market along Pagayona Street, Municipality of Quezon, Palawan Province. Rabinio was with his wife, Trinidad and son Rocky when the incident happened. (Source: http://globalministries.org/news/eap/uccp-sungit.html)

His brother, Abe Sungit, a known staunch opposition and organizer against destructive mining operations and human rights violations, was also a victim of extrajudicial killing in 2005.
