Kadayawan: Mindanao's Festival of Festivals
Wednesday, August 18, 2010
By Henrylito D. Tacio


IT ALL started in the 1970's when then mayor Elias B. Lopez initiated tribal festivals featuring the lumad (native) and the Muslim tribes of Davao City where they showcase their dances and rituals of thanksgiving. Lopez himself was from a Bagobo tribe.

In 1986, the government initiated a program called "Unlad Proyekto Davao," whose main objective was to unite the Dabawenyos after the turbulent Martial Law era. The festivity was called "Apo Duwaling," in honor of the three royalties for which Davao is famous for.

Updates on President Benigno Aquino III's presidency

The word "apo" was taken from Mount Apo, the king of all mountains in the Philippines as it is the country's tallest peak at 10,311 feet above sea level.

"Du" came from durian, the king of tropical fruits which has been described as having a smell "like hell" but has a taste that can be compared to that of "heaven."

The term "waling" was from waling-waling, the queen of orchids whose ethic term means "graceful movement of a butterfly in flight." They were once found only in the forests of Davao and Cotabato province. It was discovered in Davao around 1880 by Carl Roebellin, a German plant enthusiast for the Orchid House of Sanders.

At that time, "Apo Duwaling" was meant to showcase the Davao City as a peaceful destination for other people from all over the country to visit and to do business. This was post-Edsa Revolution.

Two years later, then mayor Rodrigo Duterte renamed the festival as "Kadayawan sa Dabaw." Kadayawan is derived from the friendly greeting "Madayaw," a term taken from a Dabawenyo word dayaw which means "good," "valuable," "superior" or "something that brings good fortune."

Duterte envisioned the festivity as a way to celebrate the bountiful harvest of Davao's flowers, fruits and other produce as well as the wealth of the city's cultures. Today, the festival continues to honor the city's richness and diverse artistic, cultural and historical heritage in a grand celebration of thanksgiving for all of city's blessings.

In the early stage, ethnic tribes lived together harmoniously, in peace and friendship like the Bagobos, Mandayas, Manobos, Mansakas and T'boli and others. They were the ones who gave the province a name. Davao came from the word "daba-daba," which means fire.

According to history, Davao's ethnic tribes residing at the foot of Mount Apo would converge during a bountiful harvest. This ritual serves as their thanksgiving to the gods particularly to the "Manama" (the Supreme Being).

Various farming implements, fruits, flowers, vegetables, rice and corn grains were displayed on mats as villagers give their respect and thanks for the year's abundance. Singing, dancing and offerings to their divine protectors were the highlights of this ritual.

Although times have changed, this practice of thanksgiving (pahinungod in local dialect) is still very much practiced by modern day Dabawenyos. This tradition flourished and evolved into an annual festival of thanksgiving. And that's how Kadayawan sa Dabaw came into existence.

Today, Kadayawan has transformed into a festival of festivals, with a number of spin-off festivals in the region. The festival 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 its representatives parade in full regalia in thanksgiving for the blessings granted on the city.

Actually, the celebration interfaces three aspects: tribal, industrial, arts and entertainment. It is a week-long celebration which is highlighted with floral floats, street-dancing competitions and exhibits that showcase the island's tourism products and services.

The two big parades of the festival are often held during weekends. The street dancing, called Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan, is done on Saturday while the floral float parade falls on Sunday.

The street dancing has two main components. The first is the street parade, where performers groove it up while parading along selected points of the city (at the streets of CM Recto, San Pedro, Pelayo, Bonifacio, Ponciano, and Roxas Avenue). The second is the showdown, where the very same people perform on the same venue, which has traditionally been San Pedro Street. The parade normally takes place in the morning, the showdown from the afternoon to evening.

One pundit puts it: "The Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan is wildly popular because of the distinctively Mindanaoan beat and costumes. Several tourists come to Davao to watch hundreds of people dancing with vigor in the streets, clad in their native attire and carrying extravagant props that would give Hollywood studios a serious run for their money."

This year's competition has only one category and is open to any group, organization, institutions or communities. Participating Mindanao-based contingents must showcase the festival of their locality, while participating Davao City-based contingents must interpret the Kadayawan festival or a Mindanao folklores, myths or legends.

Criteria for judging are as follows: main showdown, 70 percent; (choreography and creativity, 25 percent; performance, 30 percent; musicality, 25 percent; and production design, 20 percent), and street performance, 30 percent (choreography and creativity, 25 percent; performance, 30 percent; musicality, 25 percent; and production design, 25 percent).

Prizes for the competition are as follows: grand champion, P300,000; first runner-up, P200,000; second runner-up, P100,000; third runner-up P75,000; fourth runner-up, P50,000; and fifth runner-up P30,000.

Nine consolation prizes, at P10,000 each, will be given and five presentation awards and special awards for best in performance and best in costumes and parade to receive P50,000 each.

The floral float parade, called Pamulak Kadayawan, is a spectacular finale, patterned after the Pasadena Parade of Roses in the United States, where flowers and fruits are set in colorful floats by business establishments, community assemblies and peoples' organizations as they promenade on the streets symbolizing all the bounty sustainably enjoyed by the city's residents. Want to see giant replicas of animals the size of a truck made up of nothing else but flowers? No problem. Go watch the parade and you will see one.

The competition is open to any person, group, organization, institution or company. It has three categories, namely small (maximum size of 8 feet x 16 feet), big (over 8 feet x 16 feet) and alternative (use of miniature cars, golf carts, mini tractors, push carts, karo, kalesa, pedicabs or similar vehicles, motorized, mechanical or animal driven).

The competing floral floats will be using at least 80 percent fresh flowers, plants, fruits and vegetables as medium, while non-competing entries are required to use at least 10 percent.

Judging criteria are symbolism (20 percent), design (40 percent) and execution (40 percent). Prizes are as follows: big category (P500,000 for first, P300,000 for second, and P200,000 for third), small category (P300,000 for first, P200,000 for second, and P100,000 for third), and alternative category (P100,000 for first, P75,000 for second, and P50,000.00 for third).

If you have nothing to do this weekend, come to Davao. Here's what Dabawenyos will tell you about its festivity: "Kadayawan is an art form in itself. A festival perfect fit for a local government that tries to position itself as the cultural capital of the Philippines. This is the best time to catch the sights, the sounds, the colors and the scent all mixing together to encapsulate the rich diversity of a place which was long ago described as the garden of the gods."

Wakeboard competition blasts off
Thursday, August 19, 2010


By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

ACTION-PACKED riding takes centerstage as the 1st Kadayawan Festival Cup Wakeboard and Wakeskate Competition plunges into action at the Deca Wakeboard Park (DWP) in Tacunan, Mintal Friday.

Manila-based Carlo dela Torre and JV Tanhangco of Team Stoked Rider and DWP dock operations manager Albert Lehman--all titled professional riders--will judge the one-day event that has attracted some 50 entries as of this posting.


"Our criteria are based on international standard being used anywhere in Asia and in the world. It will be 30 percent for obstacle tricks, another 30 percent for water tricks and 40 percent for the over-all composition of the rides," head judge Dela Torre said during a special edition of the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at the world-class cable park Thursday.

He said they riders need to be comfortable in the water and execute their tricks well.

"The first part of the day will be the semi-finals then there will be an exhibition by pro riders during lunch then the finals will be set in the afternoon. Awarding rites and the party will follow immediately," dela Torre said.

Lehman said they expect riders to have fun since it is going to be a friendly competition. He, however, added: "We expect them to have the intensity and to give their best."

DWP general manager Joboy Tady said events entered are men for 13 years old and below, junior men 14 to 19, men's 1 20 to 25, men's 2 26 to 30, masters men 31 and above and women's 20 and above all designed for Davao City residents only.
Centerpiece events include open pro-men's and pro-women's and wakeskate for men and women combined.

"We are very happy to launch this first wakeboard competition after barely eight months of operation. It's great to see more Dabawenyos riding and having fun," Tady said.


KFC chair Jason "Choy" Poblete said 90 percent of the participants are from here while a few riders will come from Manila.

"Cash prizes, plaques and freebies await the winners," he said.
KFC organizer Carive Rodriguez thanked mega sponsors DECA Homes Resort Residences and Stoked and major CEMEX Philippines, Boysen Paints and DPC Philippines.

Tady said the wakeboard facility opened in December. Its business hours start at 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with lunch break from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Two engineers are operating its cable. Four lifeguards are on standby to keep the safety of the riders. The riders are also required to use safety gears like vest and helmet before allowed to ride. All beginners are briefed before they ride.

Its Kadayawan promo rates now pegged at P500 from the previous rate of P1,000 for a whole day pass and P300 from P700 for a half day pass.

Editorial: Kadayawan Festival: A celebration of culture
Thursday, August 19, 2010



WEDNESDAY night, at the lobby of Apo View Hotel, foreign and local tourists clicked their cameras to chronicle a group of young lumad children dancing their way to the beat of kulintang, amazed not only by the sight of the kids performing before them but also by each of everyone's rich knowledge of their culture.

Similar scenes greeted other visitors elsewhere in Davao City. Other big hotels, restaurants and even sidewalks are littered with dancing lumads as the metropolis' indigenous people showcase their phenomenal uniqueness and rich tradition.

Updates on President Benigno Aquino III's presidency

It's Kadayawan time once again. Davao's celebration of life flourishes as people commemorate their much-awaited holiday that will explore the past, present and future of the Dabawenyos.

As in the past, there's an influx of both foreign and local tourists in the city, and hotels are fully booked as major conferences like the 1st OSHD-HUDCC National Convention and the Mindanao Exporters Forum are held here to coincide with the annual festivity every August.

The City Government of Davao headed by Mayor Inday Sara Duterte is making sure this year's fiesta -- the 25th edition since the Kadayawan celebration started --will be a huge success. Things are indeed going well, and with the active participation of the private sector, this year's Kadayawan promises to be another exhilarating one.

Some of the highlights of the celebration include the Moda Mindanaw, an indigenous-inspired design competition, Hiyas ng Kadayawan, the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan and, of course, the floral float parade called this year as Pamulak.

The people of Davao should be proud of this festivity, and the fact that this one focuses on the indigenous people should make them even more delighted. It's not just about bountiful harvest of fruits and flowers, or a celebration of life. Kadayawan is a celebration of culture.

K-10: 10 tribes and the settlers
Sunstar Davao

DANCE to the beat of the drums. Feast your eyes on vibrant cultural performances. Bask in the brilliance of this city's bounty. It's time to celebrate the 25th Kadayawan Festival!

The Kadayawan Festival is celebrated yearly in this city whose name derives from the friendly greeting "Madayaw", which means good, welcome, or beautiful. The word "Madayaw" originates from the Dabawenyo word "dayaw", meaning good, valuable, superior or beautiful.

Kadayawan 2010 or K-10 brings live music, dance, trade fairs, fashion shows, and performances as a celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and serenity of living.

K-10 recognizes the 10 distinguished tribes of Davao: Ata Manobo, Ubo Manobo, K'lata, Tagabawa, Matigsalog, Maranao, Maguindanao, Tausug, Sama and Kalagan, celebrated as the pillars of this city's history.

It is in August the city celebrates the 10 tribes since it's also at this time of the year a bountiful harvest of fruits is experienced in the region. It is also a celebration of the Waling-waling, the Philippine Eagle, the Durian fruit, and the Mount Apo which are symbols of the beauty, bounty, and culture of the city.

This city embodies a harmonious relationship among the tri-people: the Muslims, Christians, and the Indigenous Peoples. Nowhere else in the world will you find a city overflowing with cultural diversity that it pulsates through the streets, its people, its visitors, from it's mountaintops to it's shores.

City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte said there would be no theme in this year's Kadayawan as she said: "the main reason why we want to celebrate this is to highlight our 10 tribes."

Highlights of this year's celebration are the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan, Pamulak, Hiyas sa Kadayawan, Panagtagbo, to name a few.

Running from August 16 to 22 is the Panagtagbo at the People's Park. Panagtagbo is a cultural show, the converging of the Ata Manobo, Ubo Manobo, K'lata, Tagabawa, Matigsalog, Maranao, Maguindanao, Tausug, Sama and Kalagan tribes, celebrating thanksgiving of their oneness with the earth through performances, culinary fiesta and age-old craftsmanship integrated in a program that showcases their strength as diverse peoples of Davao.

Hiyas sa Kadayawan is held August 20 at Almendras Gym. This is a pageant in search for the Kadayawan symbol, the indigenous lass who is knowledgeable of her indigenous culture and wisdom through a pageantry of Mindanaoan myths and legends.

Indak indak sa Kadalanan, set August 21, is a street dancing parade which runs through the city's major thoroughfares, showcasing the different colors, cultures and traditional dances of the different tribes of Davao and Mindanao.
As a grand finale of the Kadayawan Festival, the Pamulak Floral Float Parade set August 22 is a mobile display of the blooming of flowers and ripening of fruits in creatively decorated floats on parade, showcasing the abundance of vegetation in the Davao Region.

Of course, the Kadayawan festival would not be complete without joining in the various fair trades in the city. Once of which, at the Sanguniang Panlungsod Lobby, proudly Davao-made goods are displayed. From handicrafts made from durian pulp to local delicacies, these locally produced and manufactured items only show that entrepreneurship is encouraged in the city.

The Hudyakaan, the nightly food and music party at Bolton St., is also not one to be missed most especially as top bands are to perform, such as Rivermaya, 6 Cycleminds, Razorback and Gloc 9 (August 19); Pedicab, Cueshe, Callalilly, Imago, Sandwich, and Marcus Highway (August 20); 6 Cycleminds, Callalily, Rivermaya, Razorback, and Paraluman (August 21). Local bands will also perform during the nightly street party.

Rico Blanco, Cueshe, Callalily, Imago and Sandwich will perform at the Kadayawan sa Damosa festivities on August 19. At Kadayawan sa Chinatown, Rivermaya, 6 Cycleminds, Razorback and Paraluman (August 20); and Pedicab, Cueshe, Sandwich, Imago and Marcus Highways (August 21). The series of band concerts is sponsored by Asia Brewery, Inc.

Rizal Park will play host to two Kadayawan weekend events: on August 21 (Coca-Cola concert) and on August 22 (Globe concert featuring Sandwich, Euphonics and Cesar Montano). Peoples Park will entertain its visitors with a show sponsored by Smart featuring Katya Santos, Billy Crawford, Itchyworms and the Philippine All-Stars.

But exactly, K-10 means why the city is open for celebration.

One, there is harmony in diversity. Unlike other Filipino cities who have been colonized by the West, residents of the city have adopted a multi-cultural and cosmopolitan lifestlye, embracing diversity as a continuously growing city with rich traditions.

The city has strong governance. The local government is recognized to be ahead than the national government in many ways: crafting landmark legislation; pioneering innovations in local governance; a strong political will in implementing policies and programs; its high level of self-sufficiency; and in its pluralist and liberalist political climate that result in significant grassroots and civil society participation.

The city also prides itself with a strong support from the community. The success of socio-cultural and even political endeavors of the city has always been attributed to the wellspring of support by the different sectors, groups and institutions both from the private and government.

The city has one of the lowest crime rates in the world averaging at 0.8 in every 10,000 persons per month. The Davao City Police Office has consistently been chosen as the Best Police Office in the entire country. While the Davao City Peace and Order Council has been elevated to the Philippine Hall of Fame for consistently being the best in the country.

Noted as a gender-sensitive city, the city is the birthplace of the country's first-ever Women Development Code; promoting gender equality, upholding women's rights and recognizing them as full and equal partners of men in development and nation building, and equally sharing with men all forms of productive and reproductive activities.

Seventh, the city is blessed with dynamic geography. It's located in an absolutely typhoon-free geography. From the highlands to the lowlands, the city is ideal for outdoor activities because of the stable weather condition.
The city also upholds a healthy lifestyle and well-being and its residents and encourages its visitors to pursue the same. It pioneered the regulation of smoking in public places in the Philippines. It also has tough policies against dangerous drugs, violence against women and children, and environmental pollution. The city also leads the ban on aerial spraying of plantations and use of pyrotechnics.

With the creation of the Public Safety Command Center, which serves as the nerve center for traffic signalization and CCTV cameras installed in strategic areas, the city is currently leading the country monitoring its streets. The city is also proud to be the only Asian city that has a free and integrated emergency response system similar to that of the United States and Canada: the Central 911, which responds to all kinds of emergency be it medical, fire, police assistance, natural or man-made disasters. The Davao City Disaster Coordinating Council is also recognized as the best prepared disaster coordinating council in the country.

And the tenth reason why K-10, the city government upholds optimizing its resources for maximum value. The Mayor ordered that this year's Kadayawan limit its budget to P5 million with P700,000 coming from the local government and the rest from the private sector. The City Government along with its private partners have optimized the resources yet anticipates a maximum value in return.
