October 2022 is Indigenous Peoples Month. Consequently, the Ibaloys are celebrating the Ibaloy Festival 2022. Everyone is welcome! Celebrate with us here at the Ibaloy Heritage Garden, Burnham Park.
Ibaloy's are one of the ethnolinguistic groups in the Cordilleras, collectively called Igorots. Today, October 1, 2022, is the start of the month-long celebration of the Ibaloy Festival led by the Onjon ni Ivadoy Association Incorporated.
Present in the opening this morning are Baguio's Vice Mayor Faustino Atiwag Olowan, Baguio's Councilor Poppo Cosalan, Baguio's Councilor Jose "Joemol" Mencio Molintas, Onjon ni Ivadoy's President Maximo H. Edwin Bugnay, Onjon ni Ivadoy's active member and volunteer Manang Pam Cariño, and Midland's very own Tonette and Judith Hamada.
