Back to the Disaster Area for a Fitting Ritual: Reporters return to Little Kibungan -- This is an unusual way for reporters who covered the Little Kibungan landslide to commune with their "subject" and to offer prayers in a simple but meaningful ceremony called "wiik" or "daw-es". The media event was coordinated by Delmar Carino, President of the Benguet Press Corps. Members of BCBC, BPC, KBP, & CNA were also joined by local political leaders as shown in these images. Stalwart reporters from DZWX Bombo Radyo and DZW-T540 who covered the incident and provided a blow-by-blow account on the typhoon caused disaster was overheard saying that they felt a bit relieved upon witnessing and being part of this culture based event. Rescuers, neighbors and Barangay Officials who took part in the search, rescue, extrication of dead bodies and reporters who provided news coverage at the height of the strong typhoon needed a stress debriefing from experts and psychologists but in the case of us locals in the communication field, this "Wiik" or Daw-es" is a more fitting treatment to ease our heavy hearts. Note: The reading of a pig's bile and liver by an elder is a customary practice in the Cordillera and some global IP communities to read for signs and divinations especially in times of death, birth, renewal and thanksgiving. Here, the ritual-priest saw a good sign telling those present to go ahead with the ceremony as they have the blessings of the unseen in the area.
