Educating The young ones on our Cultures

The picture on the left is my son, in traditional bahag playing the Gong i made from a can.. I just want him to grow as ekalinga.
I am just against our artist in the movie industry depicting our cultures and tradition in their own concept and interpretation..Even the Kalinga dance they even choreographed it with modern dance..
Maybe we should try to make an effort in trying to let the world understand what's really our culture is. I read a lot of impressions from the outside world that the Kalingas are Living in the mountains, ignorants, uncivilized people etc etc.. Yes that is the impression being made by the movie industry, and to those who pretends to speak for the Kalingas.
Today we are so modern that we couldn't even teach our children the proper way of using our traditional dresses and cultures.

Message from the Governor

Message of the Governor

On February 14, 1995, our people resoundingly ratified Republic Act 7878, which re-shaped the 29-year old Province of Kalinga-Apayao into two distinct, separate and independent provinces. On that day, too, we shed off our vintage political identity as “Sub province of Kalinga”.

A glimpse into the history of the province will unfold interesting chapters that could lend an eloquent importance to our political metamorphosis into a regular province.

It is noted that towards the end of the 300-year Spanish colonial rule, nothing is chronicled on the pages of Philippine history of a political entity called “Kalinga”. All that is offered by historians is that this land now called “Kalinga” was a forbidding expanse of impenetrable mountain villages and inhospitable plains inhabited by hardy remnants of malaria scourge.

Now, Kalinga beckons you to a thrilling, action-packed adventure. A destination boasting a distinct experience with nature and culture which ranges from white water river rafting, kayaking, trekking, mountain climbing, biking and village immersion.

At the outset of my administration, I have identified Nature and Culture as indispensable ingredients in achieving genuine development along with infrastructure and agricultural programs. It has become part of our strategy to attain the vision of “Consultative Governance”.

In fulfilling this vision, I urge the sectors; the service providers from the private sector, NGOs, POs and the Academe to continue strengthening their support and cooperation in preserving our natural resources and cultural heritage.

Matatago Tako Losan!
