• The people of Sagada follow a unique burial ritual. The elderly carve their own coffins out of hollowed logs. If they are too weak or ill, their families prepare their coffins instead. The dead are placed inside their coffins (sometimes breaking their bones in the process of fitting them in), and the coffins are brought to a cave for burial.

    Instead of being placed into the ground, the coffins are hung either inside the cave or on the face of the cliffs, near the hanging coffins of their ancestors.

    The reason the coffins were hang was due to the belief that the higher the dead were placed, the greater chance of their spirits reaching a higher nature in the afterlife.

    The Balete Tree are several species of the trees in the Philippines from the genus Ficus that are broadly referred to as Balete in the local language. A number of these are known as Strangler Figs wherein they start upon other trees, later entrapping them entirely and finally killing the host tree.

  • Fishing has been an important source of livelihood for Filipinos, fish being the country’s second staple food next to rice. Fishing also called angling, the sport of catching fish, fresh water or saltwater, typically with rod, line, and hook. Like hunting, fishing originated as a means of providing food for survival.

  • #PhilippineTarsier
    #ProjectPHDbyJED

    —Size, Weight, and Lifespan—
    ‚ÄčAs one of the smallest primates on earth, their body is only about 4.5 to 5 inches (11–13 cm) in length on average, with a tail about double that length. They weigh between 4 and 5 oz (110–130 g). Tarsiers are shorter-lived than many other primates. One Philippine tarsier lived to 13 years of age in captivity, and lifespan in the wild is likely shorter than this.

    Philippine tarsiers don't often move quadrupedally. Instead, they tend to cling vertically to trees, using their tail for support, and can usually be found leaping about the rainforest. They can leap 20 feet (6 meters) at a time—pretty amazing for such a small animal!

  • A definite "must teach" to Dylan

    #PhilippineTradition- #Pagmamano

    Every culture has its way of showing respect to elders. In the Philippines, the traditional gesture is called “Pagmamano.” #Pagmamano is similar to hand kissing. The younger person asks for the elder’s right hand and presses it on their forehead; this means that they’re asking for the elder’s #blessing and acknowledging their #wisdom. It’s typically done before entering an elder’s home or as a greeting when you meet them.

    “Mano po” is the phrase used to initiate the greeting. “Mano” derived from the Spanish word “hand” and “po” a Tagalog word added to sentences as a sign of respect. “Mano po” can be translated as “your hand please” and “may I have your blessing? Once the elder gives you their hand, it means that they have given you their blessing and oftentimes they will respond to you by saying “Kaawaan ka ng Diyos.” which means “God bless you or May the Lord have mercy on you.”

    There’s no age limit when using pagmamano but it’s best to teach the #youngergeneration as early as we can so they get to remember and apply it. So the next time you visit the Philippines and see someone older, greet them by saying “Mano po”.

  • #Bayani (Hero)

    Luis M. Taruc, though he led the HUKBALAHAP guerillas in the success of the battle against then the Japanese occupants of the Philippines had been known to be a Filipino political figure and rebel during the agrarian unrest during the 1930s took a while for him to be declared as one of the Philippines valiant heroes.

    As the Commander-in-chief of HUKBALAHAP (Hukbo ng Bayan Laban sa Hapon), he led a fighting strength of guerillas estimated between 10,000 to 30,000 which had been influential in the victory against the invaders. After the war, he continued his dedication to a genuine land reform program. Until his last breath, it had been his dedication to helping his fellow Hukvets acquire the much-deserved honor and recognition for their contribution to attaining social freedom and justice.

    It was in In 2017 that the National Historical Commission of the Philippines declared Luis Taruc a hero for being a "nationalist and defender of the rights of farmers and workers".

    In 1953, he dictated the contents of "Born of the People" and it became a book with the help of ghostwriter William Pomeroy. The book became Nelson Mandela's reference to his peasant resistance and guerilla in South Africa.

    Later in 1967, while as a Political prisoner in New Bilibid Prison, he wrote: "He Who Rides the Tiger." Allow me please to mention that the elder sister of Luis Taruc, named Paulina is the mother of my father. Their siblings played major roles too in guerilla warfare thus I can say that my bloodline runs the lineage of patriots.

    My father had been Luis Taruc's trusted forerunner and harbinger especially when he was a political detainee. A legacy he left was the original manuscript of the "He Who Rides the Tiger" which had been passed on to me by my late father.

    The Banaue Rice Terraces are terraces that were carved into the mountains of Banaue, Ifugao, in the Philippines, by the ancestors of the Igorot people. The terraces are occasionally called the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment, largely by hand.
