TREK Iloilo #PharmatonPH #LifeChangers

Panay Bukidnon or Tumandok or Suludnon is the only culturally indigenous group of Visayan language-speakers in the Western Visayas. They are known for their epic chants, the longest in Asia; their Binanog Dance or “The Way of the Hawk," a ritual which mimics the flight of the mighty bird; and their detailed form of embroidery known as the Panubok. This is also the tribe of the "binukot", considered a princess among them who is chosen to live her life in seclusion.

On August 29, our group, TRails to Empower Kids or TREK will be reaching out to the Panay Bukidnon tribe of Calinog, Iloilo.

For almost eight years now, our group has been conducting outreach programs for the benefit of our little brothers and sisters in indigenous people (IP) communities. We have provided assistance to the Dumagats of Aurora; the Hanunuo Mangyans of Mindoro; the Kankanais of Benguet; the Ilongots of Quirino Province; the Kalinga people; the Aetas of Zambales and others.

TREK Iloilo will be our first time to conduct a mission outside Luzon

Our aim is to help the tribe preserve their culture through its three schools of living traditions (SLT) located in the mountains of Calinog, which are Masaroy SLT, GAMABA Learning Center and Agcalagan SLT.
