It’s Kadayawan 2013 time, folks! Mindanao’s king of festivals, Kadayawan Festival, is happening this August! The 2013 Kadayawan Festival in Davao City will once again showcase Davao’s rich and diverse culture and tradition, thanksgiving of oneness with the Earth and bountiful harvest.
The Kadayawan Festival 2013 will also provide the opportunity for the various indigenous tribes such as the Ata Manobo, Ubo Manobo, K’lata, Tagabawa, Matigsalog, Maranao, Maguindanao, Tausug, Sama and Kalagan to converge.
The term “Kadayawan” comes from the Mandaya word “Madayaw” which means anything good, valuable, bountiful, beautiful.
