"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

Understanding the term “indigenous”

Indigenous peoples are ethnic minorities who have been marginalized as their historical territories became part of a state. In international or national legislation they are generally defined as having a set of specific rights based on their historical ties to a particular territory, and to their cultural or historical distinctiveness from politically dominant populations.

The History of Us

e.g.

What do REAL FILIPINOS look like?

Many netizens online are arguing if Miss Philippines candidates or Filipino celebrities are in European or Indian descents, whereas the real thing is, most of them are pure-blood Filipinos. This makes foreign people think that all Filipinos should look similar in most features. Such as Koreans in Korea, Chinese in China, or Caucasians in Western and European countries.

The Manobo / Manuvu are a large group of Austronesian people from Mindanao. This is the Udol dance, named after the slit drum that accompanies it. The mesmering rhythm of the udol is believed to call the spirits of the deceased (fallen warriors) to show them (the dancers/performers) where their remains are so they could bring them home and have a decent burial. (daghang salamat SaiaoPinoi) The dancers provide the Udol, Utomay and the Patawagay rhythms themselves as they take turns to dance. This film was taken by anthropologist Robert Garfias in the 1960s.

DANON - ILOCANO TRADITION
by/Salvador Madamba

A traditional Ilokano tradition - "danon" or ''"iyuli" actually recorded last May 1996. - This video is the second "iyuuli". The first which is more appropriately called 'danon" is when the boy's parents together with their family and village elders go to the girl's home to actually request that their children be married. In this "danon', both parties will settle the request of the girl's family , dowries and how the wedding will be done. In this second "danon" the boy's party brought with them the dowry. Not included in the video is the "dallot" which is an integral part of the "danon" rituals

Ilokano literature or Iloko literature pertains to the literary works of writers of Ilocano ancestry
The Culture of Basilan are derived from the Yakan, Tausug and the Chavacano tribes in the southern Philippines. Both Yakans and Tausugs are predominantly Muslim, while Chavacanos are primarily Christian. These three groups represent Basilan's community.

Ethnic groups - Brides of Sulu - “providing a rare glimpse into a lost culture."

A flick's production history is clothed in mystery. Filipino actors and a very tropical setting - the silent film Brides of Sulu continues to confound film historians. Last Friday night, "Brides of Sulu" opened the 5th International Silent Film Festival at Shangri-la Mall. The film's main stars were 1930s matinee idols Adelina Moreno and Eduardo de Castro. It also featured other Filipino actors. James J. Gilbert narrates the story, which is introduced in a foreword as a "simple love story based upon fact and the rites, rituals and ceremonies portraying the hatred of the Mohammedan Moro for the Unbeliever is not fiction. As an authentic document of Moro life, this production is designed to instruct as well as entertain." Look more and the full description about the video HERE

Philippines Indigenous People Struggle Between Modernization and Heritage

There are more than 100 tribal groups in the Philippines -- it's only a tiny percent of the total population. They're now under threat -- largely because of modernization.

Badjao 1957

A story about the Badjaos and the Tausogs, rival Muslim tribes for centuries. The Badjaos, a group of sea gypsies, ply the sea for food and for pearls. Hassan (Tony Santos), a son of the Badjao chief falls in love and marries Bala Amai (Rosa Rosal) who is a niece of Datu Tahil (Jose de Cordova), head of the Tausogs. At the urging of Bala Amai, Hassan decides to leave his tribe and join the Tausogs. Eventually, Datu Tahil learns of Hassan's expertise in finding rare pearls in the sea, thus exploiting him for his own selfish interests. Hassan and Bala Amai resist him, feeling that their self-respect have been trampled on. They decide to go back to the Badjaos and lead a more humble, but nevertheless peaceful life. The Badjaos accept them with all their hearts. An LVN classic film, largely because of shining performances by Rosa Rosal and Tony Santos. It won the award for best direction (Lamberto V. Avellana, National Artist for Theater and Film in 1976), best story (Rolf Bayer), best editing (Gregorio Carballo), and best cinematography (Mike Accion) at the 1957 Southeast Asia Film Festival held in Tokyo.

Sea Gypsies Losing Out

In the waters around the Philippines nomadic fisherfolk anchor their houseboats close together at night - some small protection against the pirates who rule the Sulu Sea. Life on the ocean spells fear, violence and hunger for the Philippines Sea Gypsies - the Badjao. They are caught between discrimination on the mainland and hardship at sea. Adding to their problems, dynamite and trawler fishing have devastated life on the coral reefs around the Philippines. Many Badjao can hardly catch enough fish to make a meal or buy diesel for their boats. This minority's culture and even existence hangs in the balance.

These efforts are supported by the Ayta organisation PBAZ - Paaralang Bayan ng Ayta sa Zambales, part of the Education for Life Foundation.

Takik

The Takik is a Bontoc courtship dance performed by a man and a woman. At least 5 other male dancers accompany them, providing the music and rhythm for the dance. They line up, starting with the head gong-player, behind the male dancer. The line of dancers form circular or spiral dancers, with the head gong-player usually displaying more elaborate steps than the accompanists behind him.

Sagada, A Hidden Treasure Of Caves, Waterfalls, And Pure Mountain Living

Nestled in a valley at the upper end of the Malitep tributary 5000 ft above sea level and 275 km north of Manila, is the secluded town of Sagada. Known for it's hanging coffins, other popular activities include spelunking, rappelling, rock climbing, and trekking to waterfalls. Me, I vote for its quiet, secluded, and relaxing appeal. This is definitely the place to go if you want to get away from the chaos of Manila and enjoy a little serenity.

Long time ago the Tingguian and Igorot tribes  intermarried and it did not  take long enough they formed another tribe. However, both tribes had different dialects. Thus, the result of the  intermarriage resulted to one dialect derived from the “Tingguian of Abra” and  “Igorot of Cordillera” - born the “Itneg” of the newly formed tribe.

The Darangen is an ancient epic song that encompasses a wealth of knowledge about the Maranao people who live in the Lake Lanao region of Mindanao. This southernmost island of the Philippine archipelago is the traditional homeland of the Maranao, one of the country's three main Muslim groups.

Although other variations exist among the Maranao ethnic communities living in other areas, among the Maguindanao ethnic group, and Manobo groups to the Pacific Coast. The one in Lanao del Sur is considered the most definitive.

Princess Urduja: The Mother of Ibalois?

Have you ever heard of Princess Urduja? If your elementary teacher was like ours, she would have told you about the warrior princess who is believed to have ruled the Kingdom of Tawalisi.

Anyway, there is an ongoing debate whether Urduja ever existed and whether the Kingdom of Tawalisi really is modern day Pangasinan. Incidentally, the province of Pangasinan honors the memory of Urduja by naming its capitol the Urduja Palace and by putting up a statue in her honor.

Look about "Ibaloi language, which belongs to the Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian languages family. It is closely related to the Pangasinan language" HERE

The first time i recorded her, she thought I was there to exploit them and their land. Understanding that I had all good intentions, she agreed to sing for me again, especially since the tape of my 1st recording got corrupted. This time she sang about the beauty of the place and hoped I take back good memories of it and her through her song ;-)

Visayas: Island of the Painted - The pintados

Visayan Tattoo culture The Pintados (The Painted ones) Visayan: Batukan or Batikan is a term applied to the inhabitants of the Visayas during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. The name was given to them because they painted their bodies with red clay - or, as some writers say, on account of their being tattooed. Both men and women wear their hair long and fastened in a knot on the crown of the head. The men tattoo their entire bodies with very beautiful figures, using small pieces of iron dipped in ink. This ink incorporates itself with the blood, and the marks are indelible. Source: Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society by William Henry Scott

Pagdiwata Ritual at Manila Contemporary

Pagdiwata ritual is a family affair and is the focal point of Tagbanua life. Its activities embody their traditional sentiments and contribute to their persistence. It is also used for securing seance when people are sick especially when treated by their relatives as a medium. It includes offering of wine, nuts, wax, food and many other commodities. Pagdiwata is also an offering to celebrate a bountiful harvest or a successful hunting trip. Among all functionaries, the Babaylan (high priest/priestess) is the most powerful and influential. Folk tradition dictates that disrespect for the Babaylan will result in severe punishment by the supernaturals. Activities during the ritual:
a. Planting
b. War dance/ hunting
c. Harvesting
d. Tarek
e. Pagsuldan - the most prominent feature of the Pagdiwata wherein the Babaylan has possessed the spirits being called for.

Healing Ethnic Ritual of The existence of primitive ethnic doctors here in Balbalan, popularly known by them as "mandadawak" is a living testimony that Balbalan tribes were once headhunters. Mandadawak play vital role then in the glorification of tribal warriors. To these days mandadawak are active and still occupies a high ladder in the leadership of the tribes of Balbalan not anymore for her services to headhunters but for those who are affected with illness that could no longer be cured in hospitals. They also performed other customary rituals such as ethnic baptismal, customary weddings, honoring the dead, thanksgiving, among others. This video portrays one of the mandadawak of the tribe of Balbalan in "curing" illnesses. The mandadawak has to, first of all, call the attention of a spirit to help her cure the disease. Following scenes were the acts of mandadawak appeasing the spirit to give her power over the other spirit who cause the sickness of her subject. The last scenes were the act of mandadawak portraying that she already captured the devil spirit using her body as the medium. The mandadawak was joined by relatives and neighbors of the ill-infected subject giving some donations probably for the services of the mandadawak.

This video was captured during a stage presentation about mandadawak during the centennial year celebration of Balbalan.

Zamboanga 1936 - Early Film art - LOOK the film which tells the story of the past

ubeIceCreamCone wrote on Jul 5, 2009: "Zamboanga" was directed by my grandfather, Marvin Gardner in his native Philippines in 1936. His screen name was Eduardo De Castro. Thought lost forever, it was found in 2003? by Philippine filmmaker Nick de Ocampo at the US Library of Congress. (The copy came from Finland, hence the subtitles.) It stars Fernando Poe, Sr., the father of Fernando Poe, Jr., Philippine actor and presidential candidate. It is the oldest Filipino feature film known to exist. "Zamboanga" came at a crucial moment in the history of filmmaking in the Philippines. It showed the picturesque sea and the captivating landscape and with warring tribes and a kidnapped maiden to hook the audience’s attention," Deocampo reveals.
