SUGOD NA! Pag-abli sa Kadayawan today
Mayor Inday Sara Duterte will officially open the 32nd Kadayawan celebration today — Monday, August 14.
Dubbed as the “Pag-abli sa Kadayawan”, the festival opening ceremonies will start with an ecumenical thanksgiving service for the year of blessing and bounty.
Kadayawan’s opening ceremony will kick off featuring the music and dances of the 11 tribes of the city.
One of the highlights of this year’s Kadayawan celebration is the Kadayawan Village at the Magsaysay Park, which showcases the culture and heritage of the 11 tribes — Ata, Iranun, Kagan, Klata-Guiangan, Maguindanaoan, Maranao, Matigsalug, Ovu Manuvu, Sama, Tagabawa and Tausug.
Davao’s Indigenous Peoples constructed the Kadayawan Village by hand and will be opened at 4 pm Monday.
The 11 tribes take the centerstage as they showcase their cultural pride and identity through a series of authentic performances, rituals, cuisine, garments and arts.CIO
