For our kailiyans who are based in Japan, you might want to join this Cordillera Day Celebration on 22 April (2-8 pm) at the Seikyushu Kyokai (The Church of Our Savior) in Koto-ku.
According to its organizers, “The event shall be a simple gathering of Philippine Cordillerans, where, by playing the gangsa, dancing the salip/salidsid, and sharing tapuy and pinikpikan, we hope to promote friendship and camaraderie – not only among ourselves but also among our Filipino and Japanese friends.” Read the program of activities here and the map to the venue here.

I think it is so cool that Cordillera Day falls on the same day as Earth Day. It’s just so aprospos, don’t you think? Nice blog.

Oo nga ano, I didn’t realize that both are scheduled on the same day. Thanks for visiting 🙂
My husband, kids and I enjoyed dancing tadek and playing the gangsa. Good chance for me to expose my family to our culture. Wow! Even your igado, pinapaitan and sisig were so yummy. Hope next time you won’t let the chicken fly so we’d have pinikpikan. Urp, still full with those food prepared by the Abrans. Lucky you, you have young and old to prepare all these excitement and banquet. Mabuhay gaditi taga Cordillera! Mabuhay tayo amin! Minnasan, arigatou!
That’s great! Its good that you were able to attend the event and that you had a venue to introduce our culture to your family. That’s funny about the chicken. Baka native chicken gamin isunga napardas nga tinmayab 🙂 Thanks for your comment and we hope you continue to visit us and join our discussions in this blog.
