A warm and friendly greeting derived from the Dabawenyo word "dayaw" that means good, valuable, superior or beautiful. Such is "Kadayawan," a celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and serenity of living.

Today, Kadayawan has metamorphosed into a festival of festivals, the mother of many other fesivals in the region as it honors Davao's heritage, its past personified by the ancestral "lumads", its people as they celebrate on the streets, and its floral industry as they parade in full regalia in thanksgiving for the blessings bestowed on the city.

The festival began from a government-initiated program called “Unlad Proyekto Davao” in 1986, planned to unite the Davaoeños after the chaotic martial law years and to showcase the city as a peaceful and colorful place to visit and do business in. At the time, it was called “Apo Duwaling,”a name created from the icons Davao was famous for: Mt. Apo, the country's highest peak; durian, the king of fruits; and waling-waling. The queen of orchids. Davao is also home of the majestic Philippine eagle, the national bird. In 1988, the festival was renamed “Kadayawan sa Dabaw” by Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to celebrate the city's unique wealth in flowers, fruits, and ethnic culture.

Today, Kadayawan has transformed into a festival of festivals, the mother of may other festivals in the region as it honors Davao’s artistic, cultural and historical heritage, its past personified by the ancestral “lumads”, its people as they celebrate on the streets, and its floral industry as they parade in full regalia in thanksgiving for the blessings granted on the city.

“Kadayawan sa Dabaw” is an enriching experience with a difference as its explores the past, present and future of the Davaoeños, the Mindanaoans, the Filipinos. Its sights and sounds remain supreme. Be part of the experience.

“Du-aw na sa Dabaw! Duyog sa Kadayawan! Maglingaw-lingaw ta!”

Bonok-bonok Maradjaw Karadjaw Festival of Surigao City
September 9

,

,


Surigaonons' way of thanksgiving for the bountiful blessings, this is event is marked by Mardi Gras-like celebrations. Dances are offerred in honor of the city's patron saint, Señor San Nicolas de Tolentino.

History of Bonok-Bonok

Surigao is home to the Mamanwa ethnic tribe. Their dances are showcased in a local festival called "Bonok-Bonok, held at the feast of San Nicolas de Toletino which is held annually on September 10. The Bonok-Bonok depicts the native folks' merry-making to show gratitude to pagan gods for bountiful harvest and good health.

Bonok-bonok Maradjaw Karadjaw is a Mardi gras-like celebration of dances, colors, bargains, and food.

One of the oldest and still existing tribes in the Philippines are the Mamanwas, who are quite similar to the Negritoes in physical profile. Although forced to settle in the hinterislands because of the advent of development, they still practiced, however, their customs and traditions. Among these is the belief about “KAHIMUNAN”, a tribal festivity, where music and graceful dancing are distinctive features. They chant and play accompanied with their instruments, such as: the gimbar (drum), the gong and the bamboo called the “kalatong” and “katik”. A “baylan” or priest officiates the celebration as a tribute to their God, “MAGBABAYA” and ancestors for good health and bountiful harvest intercessions.

During the “kahimunan” or tribal festivity, wild pigs, chicken and different fruits are offered to the ancestors. A thanksgiving dance called “BONOK-BONOK” is performed by the different village chieftains and babaeyons. Happiness and friendship are expressed through dancing, shouting and singing. They wave scarves of “BANAY” as signs of good will, prosperity and blessings for the entire tribal village.

Thus, Bonok-Bonok is a ritual dance which originated from these early settlers. The rhythm usually starts with a slow beat and gradually gets faster, causing the dancers to work at pace with the music. Adding to the attraction of the dance, is the colorful raiment, which includes beaded headdresses or tubaw, bracelets and anklets of the women. The ceremonial dress of the men and women are likewise ornate in design, and of various colors.

The dance ritual has been brought down through the generations and still being practiced today. In reverence to the Patron Saint San Nicolas de Tolentino, the people have already adopted the “Bonok –bonok Maradjaw Karadjaw” Festival which is a reflection of Surigao’s rich cultural heritage.

That would be too much commercialization....most festivals are meant as thanksgiving to their patron saint....plus each festival has its own feature.

yeah but lets not look too much of commercialization side, lets focus on promoting the whole island as a tourist destination rather than a battle ground which is believed by many but fortunately not true naman. thus, to divert the attention of all those dirty minded people it's high time that we should have this kind of tourists attraction. let them experience our other side, let them hear our sounds, the beat and our colors.

Nice input. Sana matawag ang pansin ng Mindanao organizers. In this scenario, Mindanao will gain more trusts (building image) in the world.

oo nga, this will be totally a very big event. imagine a city hosting such number of contingents...... and each group will be composed of not less than 200 participants and just multiply that numbers to the number of cities that will participate... just imagine the impact of such event to the economy of the host city. gosh! i really hope somebody could make a better plan on this. this is really a big pogi points for the whole island. remember tourism industry is now one of the three biggest industry in the world. the other two is mining and agriculture.
