The Local Tribes Have Their Moves Too

In 2013, I conducted my activity in Ngibat Kalinga, the local tribes had their “gangsas” while dancing and women sang “Salidumay.” It was a great experience to see the local tribes celebrating the success of their community project: Silay-Ngibat Footpath. It is the first time for the local tribes of Ngibat to accomplish a community project. After the activity, my colleagues and I were able to walk to the Silay-Ngibat footpath. Along the way, you can see their rice paddies and the mountains on the other side. Image Credit: Shavkat

i remember a line of that song 'salidumay' ''agberbel ka ng agbarbel, paragpag mu ti dimmakkel''. (you carry barbells, what gets bigger is your torso)

I didn't know that "Salidumay" songs can be composed on the spot by the local tribes. Unfortunately, I didn't get the lyrics. Image Credit: Shavkat

@Shavkat that lyrics of salidumay that i posted is not the real lyrics. it was an amusing song, and it even had Tagalog translation

@Shavkat You are handy with the pounder. I shall remember this when I need someones head pounding And then the rice is made into flour for breads? Is that why?

@TiarasOceanView Actually, they need to remove the covering of the harvested non-polished rice. They don't have milling machine on the mountain. Basically, it is done manually.

They were so grateful to have their role in the community project. As of this time, another project was decided by the local tribes to build. The photo was taken while my colleague and I hiking back to the main road using their accomplished project: Silay-Ngibat Footpath. Image Credit: Shavkat

I think it is better to share the experience, my friend. Some people haven't seen the success of involving the local tribes in making their community project: Silay-Ngibat Footpath. Image Credit: Shavkat

It was a great achievement for the local tribes to have their Silay-Ngibat footpath. After the activity, the team used the footpath going back to the main road. Image Credit: Shavkat

@just4him It is, my friend. The local crops from the rice paddies can be easily transported with the usage of the footpath.

Reminds me of something I saw on The Daily Show the other night
Trevor gets inspired by how South Korea announced its presidential poll results.

There are some events that seem similar to others. The best part is to help the local people in uplifting themselves from living in hardships. Image Credit: Shavkat

Some local people still do here in Baguio. The only difference I had seen how they do it in the province. You can able how is their living condition in the mountain. Image Credit: Shavkat

I am sorry. my friend. The local tribes' dance called "taddok." It is a native dance where the men play the "gangsa" while skipping their feet and the women dance "tanggi" that outstretches their arm and skips their feet too. Image Credit: Shavkat

It is also the same term for "gangsa." It is commonly known musical instrument for cordilleran in the Philippines. Image Credit: Shavkat
