Pangasinan seeks preservation of arts, culture

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan (15 February) -- A resolution was passed by the provincial board requesting Governor Amado T. Espino to create a commission that will conduct a comprehensive study on the origin and history of Pangasinan.

Resolution No. 442-2008 authored by 2nd District Board Member Nestor Reyes stated that the result of the study which could be a good material for scholars could help instill a sense of identity among Pangasinenses.

Among others, the study will delve on finding out the exact day, month and year that Pangasinan was founded and consolidated.

Lawyer Gonzalo T. Duque, president of Lyceum-Northwestern, earlier lamented that Pangasinan is among the few provinces in the Philippines that has not established the exact date of its founding by the Spaniards.

Another resolution also proposed by Reyes, Provincial Resolution No. 443-2008 seeks to establish the Pangasinan Language and Heritage Center that will undertake studies and promote activities on the preservation, promotion and development of Pangasinan language and heritage."

Two other related resolutions, also proposed by Reyes, seek to establish the Pangasinan. Museum that will feature, preserve and promote the rich cultural history and historical legacy of Pangasinenses and craft and compose an official Pangasinan hymn and march to be used during public functions and festivities.
