by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (1 October) -- A solidarity parade will kick off tomorrow, October 2, the various interactive and participative activities of this year's Dungog: Indigenous People's (IP) festival at the Villareal Stadium here.

Provincial Tourism Officer and festival director Alphonsus Tesoro said that the parade will be followed by a welcome ceremony that will feature short performance pieces in the form of chants, songs, dances and movements descriptive of the IP's respective cultural living traditions.

The opening rites will also include the IP's presentation of traditional houses to the guests and participants as part of their efforts of advocating cultural exchange and traditional arts and cultural preservation.

The festival will showcase 15 traditional houses, cultural performances, interactive demonstrations of IP's way of life, series of fora on various IP issues and concerns, traditional games exhibition, interactive workshops, and a solidarity night with the IPs, among others.

The nationwide celebration will gather more than 100 IP groups from all over the country for cultural exchanges and presentations highlighting significant aspects of their respective culture.

The week-long festival is pursuant to President Gloria Macapagal–Arroyo's Presidential Proclamation No. 486 and consistent with former President Fidel Ramos' Presidential Proclamation 1124 as well as the United Nation's General Assembly declaration of the years 2005 to 2014 as the Second Decade of the World's IPs.
